I was in the cafe with my mate earlier when two girls came in late teens early twenties wearing Harrington's and Doctor Martens. When we told them they were dressed exactly like we used to when we first started standing in the Shed in the late 70's they were both proud and embarrassed at the same time it was very weird ha ha.

Hey guys

Don't know really where to ask this, but anyone has good chelsea-related accounts to follow on twitter? I'm looking for news\updates\etc. Feel like I need to clean and update my feed a little bit. Thanks

@Spike why are Tim Tams so good

What you need to do next is have a cup of milky coffee or black tea and bite each of the ends of the tim tam. Next use it as a straw to drink your hot drink, be careful it will melt in a flash.

I'm wearing doc martens (black oxfords) right now and I'm looking for a Harrington jacket that fits well.

Heh, my friend already recommended doing so with milk alone. It was truly amazing!

It's really unfortunate Tim Tams cost like 5 EUR or something here though.

Don't know how much P&P would cost you but wait till the Xmas sales. I bought a Prince of Wales check Harrington from Lambretta last Xmas half price. Also Weekend Offender and Terraces menswear are worth a look especially in the Outlet dept.

The jacket was on sale for half price on the website. About $175 American. It was also the weather-proofed production as opposed to the true original. I was close to buying it but was hesitant on purchasing because I really didn't want to commit to a jacket that could end up running too small or large.

Not sure if this link will work in the States but there was a documentary about Skinheads on the other night.Lots about the clothes but also the history and culture. You could argue that it was Chelsea fans who first adopted the look there are brief glimpses of Chelsea and the Bridge and also a couple of notorious top Chelsea faces.

I like Don Letts alot and met him a few times at BAD gigs and here n there but I reckon he still made too much of the Oi skins.

Skinheads to start out were sharp. They had style,class. They had to being 1 offshoot from mods. With their love of ska/soul and with alot of the 2nd/3rd  generation Jamaicans at the dos they were getting high with each other. Sqapping dope for speed.

I really never was into the 10 eye cherry reds n red braces, more of a suedehead. But with Skinheads coming from the Hard mods (mods into ska/soul and not the psych/garage scene) they took the fashion to one extreme.

It was great getting dressed up sharp. Loved the tonic stapressed/mohair suits. But my daywear would be a black 3 silver button blazer with my initial badge on breast pocket. 3 point blue n wite hanky with tie pin, White fred perry or button down Ben or Brutus. Had a rainbow of diff color stapress and loved me fringed,buckled,tassled weaved loafers and white sox.. |Sometimes with the brolly.

My uncle was one of the Shed boys in late 60s but he was a Mod. He took me under his wing at 13 so I grew up well before my time. As well as taking me to Chelsea he took me upto Manchester and Stoke to the biggest soul clubs of the time. Inside you had all sorts. Skinheads/modsblack /American servicemen/Jamaicans all getting down to Ska and different types of Mod/Soul. All studying each others dance styles and making their own versions. There was never any hassles racial wise only from the cops doing drug busts.

But in 72 I got deep into Northern Soul and scooters and fashions went crazy. Out with the sharp clothes. In somes the knuckle dragging, bulging eyes and the swastikas. The rucks we had with that lot on the ANL marchs.

It was a sad end to what was a good scene. IMHO of course/.

It wasn't until the second wave of skins that there was any racist edge if I remember rightly ? I used to go to Blues Jamaican clubs in the 70s and skins n rastas mixing well. This was on Saturdays and Fridays. One midweek we were bored teenagers, it was January, and we were fucking freezing, and went down early to a Blues, sat at the end of a long basement in Brixton. These two black guys strolled towards our group. pulled out axes, and ..... started chopping firewood. Not before my mate literally shit himself.

haha 1st impressions can often be wrong.

When I was in my teens I would do some business with a big black Hells Angel from the Windsor lot andI 'I'd take a mate now n then who always shit himself. And the guys mates would joke about being seen with me this young guy on a hairdryer (me Lambretta) But they knew I didn't care who they were and after awhile I got on well with all of them.

In response to Leif

I got into Speed (amphetamines. we dont have smokable speed here in England then) from the age of 14. I got into it big time with a girlfriend whose dad had 2 chemists we would raid olld stock. So as well as the normal street sulphate/Blues I was doing Duramin/Durophet/Biphetamine etc. All had great names like Green and Clears/Black and White Bombers/Black Bombers/Phylon etc I ended up getting a 8 a day script of Black Bombers at age 17 in 1974. I was always scared of needles which is the reason Im alive mow.

But of course with an addictive personality speed wasn't enough. I went thru a stage of doing alot of Acid and 5 of us always locking ourselfes away for days doing bottles of LSD listening to Dylan and  Floyd.

But I found Heroin in 1980 and thought it was the B all end all. It took me 2 years of doing it every day and then not having any to realize what a habbit was! So after that I made sure I wasn't without.

I got up to a 7 G a day habit as well as doing 3 or 4 g of Coke and all the other good stuff like MDMA and Ket.

Ive always maintained a very good life, made a good living and great social life but got tired of getting busted and got a Methadone script of 150 ml a day about 10 years ago.

Now on 40 ml a day and not had any gear for 3 years tho I dont mind a line or 3 of charles now n then and of course I wont stop smoking green.

Ive knwn many who were just content doing a bit of speed/coke at the weekends and even known one or 2 able to take smack now n then but the amount of friends (and my unclle who got me into Chelsea and my love of music) that Ive loist thru ODs and drug influenced health problems makes you realize that not many get out alive or in one piece.

I know I'm a lucky one.

I'm just on my way to Goa for a few weeks. I dont get back till7th Jan so give those Spuds some verbal for me guys! I HATE NORTH LONDON!!!!

Love and Peace!!!!

Came here to post about something else but just came across this.

Wanted to know about Acid. Never done it before but want to, friend who has said it changed his total perspective on life and you can hear it from the way he speaks now :lol:. Is it really that live of a trip? Smoke a lot of green, done MDMA once (want to again), but never anything that trippy. 

Also wondered, have you done DMT? That's one on the bucket list!
