Happy detention day.
35 years ago we learned that we’re all part jock, part prom queen, part need, part basketcase and part delinquent. Truth.2019-03-24

Contrary to modern notion of skinheads having shaved heads, the term was originally put upon working class kids who got their hairs cut short (by the days’ standards) in a modified ivy-league style college boy cut. This fellow here has a classic original skinhead look. The shorter near bald cut came during the “new breed” revival in late 70a-early 80s and the orginal length started becoming associated as a Suedehead cut. The original early 70s suedehead haircut was actually a bit longer and wouldn’t be considered skinhead in any way by today’s definition.2019-03-21
Great pic I’d never seen before of post-skinhead “bootboys”, a short subculture during the glory days of British glam rock.2019-03-20
Who knew such a thing existed?
Tho there is a “National _____ Day” for everything now so I’m not surprised.2019-03-20

Spirit of 82 skinhead youth
The more typical photo of skinhead youth. Looks like it’s from the early 80s when the average age got a little higher into the mid and later teens.2019-03-19
Spirit of 69 skinhead youth
Excellent photo of the classic skinhead style from this photo that was probably taken in 1968-9. Back when it was truly a youth movement with the average age being somewhere in the early to mid teens.2019-03-19
