ah! this is england! actually is a really good movie! definitely worth seeing.

just downloaded this last night....looks really good!

torrent can be found at http://www.mininova.org/tor/614923

Interesting stuff. I wasn't sure if brogues had been part of that fashion or not, but ever since I saw a picture of this one Japanese dude wearing Trickers and high cuffed jeans I've loved the look of brogue boots with cuffed denim. I picked up a pair of Grenson Ilkley brogue boots soon after, and I've been mixing that look in my dress on occasion.

im definitely a fan of that look....trickers stow boots should be here within a week!

i love those really grainy portrayals of race relations in 1980s (and earlier) working class england.

my beautiful laundrette was brilliant.

kidulthood (released and set in 2006ish) was pretty bloody good too.

it always cracked me up because it's tom and bootboys and not tom and the bootboys. great era in general for oi! was early to mid 90's.

interesting clip on original skinheads and how the image fell apart getting tied up in racist tribes ... if anyone knows what documentary either of these are from, PM away.

and Laurel Aitken... amazing.

suedeheads and the rest

edit -- fixed these. it is skinhead attitude. i'll have to check that out. the older footage seems more like news programs, but the first seems to have docu lower thirds. there's 2 or 3 clips of it on youtube.

Yeah that's the movie. You might be able to find it but it will be hard to get English subtitles. I think the first clip is from a BBC documentary on Two Tone.

i downloaded it a few weeks ago and it took me like 3 days to figure out how to play it since it was some fucked up disk image.

either way, really good film although incredibly depressing.

i just read some of this thread and it is quite interesting to me. im a black male who wears fred perry and various plaids, so when i am sometimes out and about, i think about how people perceive what i am wearing in relation to the whole skinhead thing. i have always been aware of the whole thing. i have seen nazis skinheads do foul shit to minorities and then get the shit beat out of them. i also know sharps whom i have heard stories about them beating the shit out of nazis for being racist fucks. im down to kick a nazi's ass!! anyway, this should be more about fashion that anything. regardless, the look is dope and fred perry makes the best polo ever. i will never stop wearing them because i feel its a racial thing. real talk.

I feel like a black tshirt, levis and shortcropped hair wouldn't stick out anywhere in rural/suburban america. I've never even thought of the correlation to skinhead culture.

if you like the skinhead look, but dont want to go shaved head, you will end up back in 1990s brit-pop style

look at early blur pictures, high white laced docs, fred perrys, cuffed levi, but with the shag brit mop

i have pictures of Elastica, Suede, Morrissey, and Pulp all dressed in the vein of skinheads. In the video for "pregnant for the last time" by Moz and the one where they are all wearing Lonsdale shirts with cuffed sleeves, cuffed jeans, docs, and tucked in shirts, plus they are hanging out in a brick alley.

pretty much skin style + hair care = 90s brit. add a pomp or add a shag hair cut

well im black...and if i saw you i'd probably be like "what the fucks up" but that's just my opinion...

I feel like a black tshirt, levis and shortcropped hair wouldn't stick out anywhere in rural/suburban america. I've never even thought of the correlation to skinhead culture.

i also live in a suburban area, with nothing but white people, and there was a kid in my school who wore: combat boots, and army surplus clothing. He also happened to have a shaved head. It turns out he was racist and claimed to be a nazi. He ended up getting the shit beat out of him by some kid and everyone hated him.....

just for reference, you're most likey gonna send out the wrong message no matter where you go...

well i'm black (halfway but not from the burbs--so like miz said it prolly makes a diff) and if i see you dressed up as a skin i'd think it was hot--unless you had some weird wwii/third reich related shat, 88, 777, white shoelaces (suggesting white supremacist or copkiller or both), or any other kind of maybe-hate-related wares on you--boo...you suck.

one would also be hotter if they had anything suggesting they were a sharp, socialist, or trad.

i was really into the look back in h.s. for guys--braces, docs, button-down or polos, straightleg or tapered jeans... heck yeah. i just did the boots and braces sometimes. :P

and thx paidvacay for the old pics of Blur. :]

I've been watching this thread closely since its birth and i must say its one of the best threads on here. I love the opinions esp coming from other ethnicities. I remember being 13 and rocking my thrift store levis that were ultra tight and tapered with pactches all over them with classic chucks. I really just tried to live the anarchist punk attitude. All of which wasnt excepted as I was probably one of the only kids in a middle class, conservative southern baptist community. My style through the years has constantly shifted from subculture to subculture. But reading this thread about skinheads and suedeheads really makes me miss those days a carefree youth listening to bands like Crass, Richard Hell and the Voidiods, Minor Threat, and the Velvet underground. (all or none of which relating to the skinhead culture but not far off)

I don't know if you've noticed, but I probably use one out of every three posts trying to get TG to marry me.

I'm doing a thing right here I like to call "lying to get to the truth."

I had a skinhead girl in high school. Let me tell you, stay the fuck away. Though, she did have a cool Doberman who bit everyone.

^ I've dated two. In general they're boy-go-rounds being the one girl in a huge circle of dudes.

Also, to resurrect this thread, I was in Ben Sherman in SoHo over the weekend and the some dorky rocker dude told me the as a company don't make a black harrington because that means nazi. Quite the pisser as they make a nice one and I can't live with just black and red.

The fact that brands like Fred Perry and Ben Sherman were bought on the high street back in the day doesn't surprise me that they're popular brands with mainstream culture as well. I had a conversation with a friend back home the other day about how people were corrupting his culture by adopting prototypical mod style. I guess some people don't understand.

I recently realized that I'm starting to look dangerously like a skinhead. I wear Levis almost all the time. I just shaved my head to a number 1 guard. I wear black combat boots most days. And, I tend to wear lots of military surplus. I've also been lifting weights.

Is this is bad taste? I don't look like a white white person (closest to Robert DeNiro in Taxi Driver - but with bigger eyes), and don't act like a skinhead. Still, I wouldn't want to be sending out the wrong message.

Is the way I dress in poor taste, or is it okay to look kind of like a skinhead? I'm about to buy a black Fred Perry polo, but I don't want to make it worse if I'm already sending out the wrong message.

Just to clear it up, I'm not trying to look like a skinhead, it's just sort of happened.

my ex girlfriend dyed her hair too much and it was damaged, so she decided to shave her head and start over.

some kids at her high school thought she was a skinhead chick and keye'd "skinhead" on her car door in huge letters and she had to get it repainted.

gotta watch out for that shit.
