    Just out of interest, is there anything going on in the smoke next Saturday??? I'm working down there on Sunday, so will have Saturday free, it'd b good to catch up, if anythings occurring.

    It is not Kosher,but,in saying that it is a good copy.The first one I had,it had DC5 in between the Episodes-thankfully the second one has not.Could not stand them in the 60s,certainly think less of them now.:)

    It is a funny thing about Kathy,Gramps,.They classed her as "Queen of the Mods",but in reality she never was.

    Next week you have "99p Soul" at the "Betsy Trotwood",56,Farringdon Road,London E.C.1.It costs 99p to get in!!!See details on Facebook-probably Northern.I know the Pub(they normally have Dos downstairs-but I have not been to this one),it is near Farringdon Street Tube.

    Hmmm could be tempted.

    I'm staying near tower bridge, so not sure if that's good or bad ;).

    I'll,take a look on Facebook now.

    Anyone else fancy it???

    I want to just throw something out, I found this part of Style Forum by chance. I googled "traditional skinhead fashion" and found you guys here! I used to post on this forum quite frequently a couple years ago (under a different name) but had kind of forgotten about it. I was quite surprised to find this here. My point is, I want to let everyone in this thread know that this is honestly THE best skinhead forum/topic,or whatever you want to call it, that I have ever found. Almost every other forum I have found, upon looking, basically turned out to be a bunch of guys going out of their way to be horrible to each other and purposely confuse any "outsider" who comes asking legitimate questions. I can't count the number of forums I have found where anyone who is new to all this or just wants questions about the culture cleared up, are verbally slapped for asking legitimate questions or barraged with nazi propaganda for the exact purpose of confusing them. This is one of the few forums/forum topics that I, as a skinhead, love to read and have no reservations pointing someone with questions to. THANK YOU!

    New threads. Thanks to Get Smart (Jason) for coming through.


    It's a petrol blue sharkskin three button, frogmouths on the pants. He did a fine job with nothing more than emailed sizes, and for an unbeatable price.

    just need a bit of a hem, but I usually get pants longer to be safe and added a bit to the measurements I gave him.

    moves nice and I cant wait to take it on a dancefloor with my girl. A couple of all nighters coming up and Dawn Penn in Oakland in November.

    with docker d1s (in need of an iron after a day at work) and weejuns

    And a new pair of 40+ year old (5 nail, usa made) Florsheim gunboats. Thanks to Roy for the tip to steer clear of Loakes, saved me a bundle.

    On the subject of the Aussie fella that was on the podium with the panthers, the ABC (our version of the Beeb) made a doco about the guy a few years ago. I'll see if I can hunt down some more details. Must admit that in my early to mid twenties I was obsessed with the black power movement and especially the panthers. Being a wee bit of a commie myself it was only natural I guess.
