    I was a bit of a Suedehead in the early 1980s... love that skinhead/suedehead style... always been fairly left wing though, not a right winger by any stretch of the imagination... any other skins/suedes on here? Had cropped hair since 1980 or so*, but it' normal now, not quite so shocking as it was back then...

    *actually, 1981, since I think about it... had long curly hair till then! A year is important when you're young!

    As I'm only 37 not style when I was younger. Now it's cut like that through no choice. Bit bald at the back and if I grow it just looks ridiculous and trying to hide I'm going bald. Number 2 cut every week or so.

    Well, that's it, really... I still have the same cut, but so do most of Joe Public... I couldn't afford a scooter then, but the style was something I got into... a bit later than some, but it still informs the way I dress/music/etc to this day... having said that, I lived in a house full of hippies/heavy metallers for a year while I was at uni, me in my threads, them in their leathers, kaftans etc... some are still mates now, like, but there were musical crossovers... like some of the Small Faces stuff/Mott the Hoople, even Curtis Mayfield, etc...

    Yes very much the same though 70's rather than 80's also agree with the political slant. Ah Levi staypress, shiny brogues, Ben Sherman shirts....jumpers for goal posts.... :eek:

    Have same hair cut now but more to blend in with the thinning front.

    I came and went with styles though... within the space of about 3 yrs, I was hippy/punk/rockabilly/skinhead/suedehead/mod/... eventually stuck with the last few, but still love the rockabilly stuff!

    I was into punk when I was at school. My friends and myself dyed our hair green with food colouring one lunchtime and ended up being sent home. Happy days. :eek:
