    Can someone explain this tee for me?


    I'll explain it, since it's my design.

    A few years ago there was site called realskinheads.net (RSN)....it started off as an alternative to the idiocy in the skinhead scene where scene politics were ruining most skin sites (too nazi or too lefty). So RSN was for skinheads who were just skinheads, regardless of politics. The guy that ran it was a close friend and I did his tshirt designs, mostly band shirts and this one was the "official RSN site shirt". American Skinhead Pride (since it was geared for US Skins) - Keeping USA red free (stupid catchy slogan basically saying we don't like hippies and lefties, aka "reds"). There ya have it, straight from the horse's mouth. Too bad that site turned to shit itself after a couple years and several soap operas later.

    That's interesting....I'd read that the original skinhead movement in Britain was left-of-center, but I'd never heard of any manifestation of that political stance in the USA. Thanks for your explanation.

    Wow, I completely read that differently & I've been holding back from a complete spaz! It goes to show that things in fashion can create quite a response & that it's always good to stay calm and ask questions before reacting. Thanks for clearing up. Sorry to bring the girl sensitivity to the forum.

    If the jeans were just a little smaller around the opening so you could see the whole sole, it wouldn't look so, well, girly. (NTTATWWT) It just reminds me of girls wearing bootcuts and their heel sticking out separately from the front of the shoe/boot. You could probably have the bottoms of the jeans taken in 1" and they would look a lot better IMO.

    The original skinhead movement wasn't motivated by politics, from what I understand. They were sort of like mods. The political and race stuff happened later. But I certainly am not an expert on the subject, I could be wrong.

    'original' skinhead wasnt politically motivated (if anything it was spearheaded by style and music), but that isnt to say politics werent ever an issue. It's a complex subject (esp when talking about political stances), and its stylistic elements are really interesting to trace and see where it evolved from. It gives you a sense of how so much that seems unrelated is in fact all stemmed from each other.

    I like the fit of those rescues a lot. Are those the sized down 4 pair you mentioned buying in the other thread? If so, man, the stretching is unreal.

    That's them, they're getting somewhat comfortable now.

    I'm probably going to get some 31s (3 down) to wear more casually with boots and less fitted tops. My dior 21s look similar to this sized down 1.
