A Bit Of History:
The Skinhead fashion evolved from the Mod fashion during the early sixties. The style was a mix between the Ivy and the Jamaican look. The Hard Mod and Skinhead trend became a staple for many working class youth during 1969 and onwards.
Despite their great appeal for raising some bovver, they always looked dapper with their short cropped hair, Ben Sherman button-down shirts, Sta Prest trousers, spit-shined Dr Martens boots and narrow clip-on braces. Skinheads found their way into the hearts of many with their aggro attitude and smart polished look.
Pirate'69 is dedicated to all true past and present subculture lovers - mods, peanuts, lemons, bovver boys and girls, cropheads, suedeheads, hard mods, rudies, smoothies, sorts, byrds and skins - who truly understand that our culture is not merely about a haircut or clothing style; it's a way of life that prides itself in our camaraderie and unity. Today more than ever we are inclusive and empowering of our racial, cultural, and geographic diversity.
