Nah!Just plenty of time,on my hands Mate.
I saw that many years ago-when I went to L.A.What happens in the States,happens here 10 years later.
Problem is it makes for a homogenous culture(all one class)New York City is not NYC anymore(like in the 70's and 80's)That's why I left.Now I'm in New Mexico.They have a scooter club here but I don't have one and don't know what they are about.Haven't seen any skinheads(there may be some White Power Skins,there is alot of White supremasists in this part of the US)I'm happy to have found this site where I can read the discourse about the scene I like.You have written some interesting stuff browniecj.Tanx.
I have noticed lately that Mod/Skinhead fashion is totally mainstream now.I believe it was the hipsters like me(i'm an original Hipster)Who after 81' continued to wear some items of clothing from the Mod revival 2Tone days.And some of those items became "hipster" fashion.
The repoter states"First it was the mods and rockers,then the TROGGS & THUNDERBIRDS,now it's the skinheads and greasers" Anyone know what TROGGS and THUNDERBIRDS are?
Have enjoyed reading your stuff buttons.I was raised up by my grandparents.In the 70's my gramps had stock in Levi's as it was still a publicly traded company,so I never wore anything but Levi's and that continues today.
Some pics I've seen before, others I haven't.
Number 240, is Manchester's Market Street, that I've described in a previous post about what we'd do, when the closed football season was on. (We made our own amusement in 1969/70.)
Edit: Apparently, the pic is of Leeds v Chelsea after the FA Cup Final replay at Old Trafford... could be, though I can't remember it (particularly), as we fought everyone.
Bleedin ell' Yankmod, you heard of Pm messages. It saves a thousand posts.
(Welcome by the way)
Excellent link Ed. A few shots I haven't seen before..
I'm on page 350 now.I'm catching up.Don't know how to use PM.
Just picked up the same jacket at a thrift store $3.Mine is the same,no side pockets.I guess it's pretty old.Faded about the same as yours.Perfect fit too.Got lucky.
Just sat with my legs crossed and one boot over the knee and stared blisfully at my polished oxblood Solovairs and considered just how beautiful they are. Like a work of art really, with the bleach white laces. A pity I bought those DM's cheap after the other christmas for when my well worn black ones wear out as the Solovairs are just superior. To be fair the new black Docs are a touch better than my old ones but the Northamponshire boot is simply a modern classic. I shall retire to my bedchamber dreaming of Solovairs!
These picture are fantastic.Pretty much my style of dress.It's Watts L.A.for sure.
Cardigans are one of the clothing items Hipsters carried on wearing and that's why you see all ages wearing them today(as the mainstream is raping Indie fashion these days)
