Transcript of "Skinheads"

  1. 1. SKINHEADS
  2. 2. <ul><li>A skinhead is a member of a subculture that originated among working class youths in the United kingdom in the 1960s, and then spread to other parts of the world. Named for their close-cropped or shaven heads, the first skinheads were greatly influenced by West India rude boys and British mods, in terms of fshion, music and lifestyle. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Origin <ul><li>Originally, the skinhead subculture was primarily based on those elements, not politics or race. Since then, however, attitudes toward race and politics have become factors by which some skinheads align themselves. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Style and clothing <ul><li>In addition to short hair, skinheads are identified by their specific clothing styles. The following list includes many of the clothing articles that have been worn by skinheads. </li></ul><ul><li>Men: Some skinheads clip their hair with no guard, and some even shave it with a razor. Some skinheads sport sideburns of various styles, usually neatly trimmed. </li></ul><ul><li>Women: A feathercut is short on the crown, with fringes at the front, back and sides. Some female skinheads have a shorter punk-style version of the hairstyle; almost entirely shaved, leaving only bangs and fringes at the front. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Boots <ul><li>Long-sleeve or short-sleeve button-up shirts or polo shirts by brands such as Everlast shirts or sweatshirts; collarless grandad shirts; V-neck sweaters </li></ul><ul><li>Boots, originally army surplus boots or generic workboots, then Dr.Martens boots and shoes; brogues Fooball-style athletic shoes, by brands such as Adidas.Women: Same as men, with the addition of monkey boots. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Trousers <ul><li>Jeans(normally Levie’s, Lee or Wrangler), Jeans and slacks are worn deliberately short to show off boots, or to show off socks. Jeans are usually blue. </li></ul><ul><li>Women: Same jeans and trousers as men, or skirts and stockings. </li></ul>
