    Thanks guy, yup been in Southie for about ten years though from "Lemminstah" originally:D
    Gotta keep Skinhead alive here, the pyjamas/sweatpants in public look is pretty prevalent here, blecch!
    There are a couple early '80s skins from Southie that still go to gigs and what not but defo don't dress the part anymore. I get more comments about my harringtons("is that a 'Cuta?!") than anything else, pretty funny this neighborhood. Very parochial, lotsa kids still hang on the connaz.

    Just enjoyed watching The Town on DVD.Particularly Jeremy Renner.The guy with the Irish Flag and Boston zip code tattoo was classic.Can't say I'm a fan of the whole Boston/Irish thing,but it made for a good Movie.

    Blazers - Very 1971 around Manchester, top button only fastened. Usually black (known as 'Baratheas') and worn with a Lancashire Red Rose Badge (or, if you had ever been there, a Twisted Wheel Badge) Some did have the badge fastened with velcro, then you removed the red rose and attached your school badge to wear it during the day. In the top pocket at night a 'silk' hankie was worn, though of course it was rarely silk, usually in the colour of your football team. I had a navy blazer with a sky blue hankie, which I tended to wear with a pair of Prince of Wales check trousers which had a thin light blue line in them.

    Are the blue canvas shoes anything like I'm wearing in this early 1967 mod (ish) shot?

    Within the space of a couple of weeks I've been greeted for St George's Day, International Worker's Day, and Beltane. :)

    (Bearing in mind I had left the NW more than three years before this) Were these blazers tailored (waisted? slightly flared?) and did they have a back vent? Or were they bog-standard school blazers?

    They were 'tailored', though usually bought off the peg. I seem to remember mine had side vents. (see photo above!)
