The Pirate'69 Shop was last updated on May 13th, 2019
The Skinhead subculture represents the working class. Its roots go way back to those moments when the first Skins, black and white, battled to find their place in society. Thanks to them, today we have become warrior brothers and sisters, always proud of our style and beliefs, dressing sharp and clean, and ready to bovver.
Pirate '69 Streetwear was founded in 2001 by trading with the most rare and priceless garments in the Skinhead/Mod/Rude-Boy scene and by making them attainable at a "working man's budget". The value of our rarest and hardest-to-find clothing, shoes and accessories extend far beyond money because are loaded with historical and fraternal meaning; they are a symbol of generations of camaraderie. Our ideal as a trading company is to help maintain and protect Our Way of Life by keeping our scene alive and stylish.
A Bit Of History:
The Skinhead fashion evolved from the Mod Fashion during the early sixties and became a staple for many working class young people in 1969 and on. With a smart clean look, short cropped hair, Ben Sherman button-down shirts, Sta Prest trousers, spit-shined Dr Martens, narrow clip-on braces and a great appeal for raising some bovver, Skinheads fought and found a way into the hearts of many.
Pirate'69 is dedicated to all true Skinheads, past and present, who know deep inside that our culture is not just about a haircut or about the clothes; it's a way of life that prides itself in our camaraderie and unity regardless of the color of skin or religious beliefs.
Skinheads out there and anyone that likes and respects the subculture:
We do not associate, nor support any kind of anti-immigrant views, prejudices or supremacy. In fact we love all color of Skins (pun intended!) The fact that the Afro-Caribbean Rude Boys and the English working class youth created together what we know today as the Skinhead Subculture proves that point, so please leave your politics by the door.
WILL IT FIT ME?
Often, knowing your measurements--and comparing them to those of the item available for purchase online--is the only way of knowing whether the item you aren't at liberty to try on will fit you. Measurements can vary from item to item, depending on the brand, type of fit, year released, country of manufacture, etc.
For example, some Ben Sherman shirts fit very tight, others have a regular fit and others are extremely wide. The same issue can happen with polo shirts, t-shirts and footwear. If you have sizing questions before your purchase you can email us to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For optimal shirt and polos fitting please follow these instructions: Take one of your best fitting shirts and lay it flat on a table. Then measure its chest and length following the image below, compare to the measurements given by the description of the shirt you want to purchase or email us in case the measurements are not given.
For footwear, please measure your insoles and compare to the measurements given on the item desired.
