A skinhead is a person who holds punk and working class values to heart, and chooses to fight for that right. It began with an offshoot from the rude boy movement, but morphed into a few denominations: Trojan Skins, White Power/Blood and Honour Skins, Anarchist Commie Skins and a few others. Skins have a worldwide reputation for being racist (not always true) and violent(an important, defining aspect), but they're generally ok people if you don't cross them. unless your coloured and you meet a Nazi skin, then your fucked.

Skinhead drees included:

JACKETS: Bomber/flight, donkey jackets
TOPS: Ben Sherman shirts/polo shirts, tight and/or sleeveless t-shirts, possibly with Nazi/B+H or Trojan prints
JEANS: Levi/Wrangler straitlegs, rolled up to show off boots
BOOTS: Docs mostly, laces determine denomination (see www.wikipedia.com), but sometimes work boots or monkey boots. usually steel-capped to aid violence and protect feet. illustrate the working-class ethics of skins.
BRACES: 3/4 inch length, any more is seen to be faking being a skin. again, colours denote denominations.
HAIR: short obviously, between a number 1 and a number 4, but usually a 2 or 3. sometimes kickboxers moheichans are seen (short sides, slightly longer middle), but not often.

skins wear what they wear because its all ideal for fighting and living in shit. ive got a lot of skin friends and they all live in shit flats or squats. skins are categorically working class.

you shouldn't cross the local skins. they will eat you up and spit you out. and the cops will never find your body. if your a proper punk you'll be fine, but watch out if your a little chav/rudie cos they will hurt you.

all in all, dont hate skins cos they're violent and eletist. even the racist ones have good reasons for what they do.

Bands like Skrewdriver
9 times out of 10 there is a skin gang in your town: probably White Power.

A movement started in Britain in the 60s when the mod scene met the hippy scene. The mod scene split, and the "hard mods", the ones who hated hippies, got harder. With a little influence from Jamacian rudeboys, the skinhead was born out of the hard mod. Most of the music was held over from the mod days, but there were ska and reggae imported from the rude boys.

In the 70s, many punk-rockers became Skinhead, Skrewdriver among them, and brought Oi! and RAC into the scene.

Skinheads represent the working class, and fight with honor.

There are 4 main types of Skinheads:

Traditional Skinheads (Rejects all politics and labels)

Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice (SHARP) Anti-racist Skinheads

White Power/National Socialist(Neo-Nazi) Racist Skinheads

Red Anarchistic Skinheads (RASH)
Communist Skinheads

There's also GASH (Gay Aryan Skinheads), but they're just a joke.

The general "uniform" of the Skinheads are flight jackets, Fred Perry's/polo shirts/dress shirts, Levi 501s/tight jeans, steelcap combat boots (Doc Martens, Gripfasts, and others), and either shaved head or close-cut hair. Sideburns are common.

Generally, skinheads reject hard drugs, although drinking and smoking are common.

Skinheads love to go out drinking with the boys, get rowdy, and kick a few skulls in.

Skinheads work for a honest, working-class living with their own sweat and blood.

Oi, Oi, Oi!
I'm a skinhead, and if you got a problem with that, I'll kick your teeth in.

A guy or girl who believes in working class values and respects those who share the same beliefs. Not all skinheads have shaved heads, wear suspenders or wear boots, but these are good signs. Not all skinheads are racist, but unfortunately some are. They are "boneheads" to the rest of the skinhead world because of the blemish they have put on a proud group of working class kids. Skinheads are of every race, every religion, because it's not who you are, what race you are or any external factor. It's what is in your heart. Traditional skins look to their english and jamaican roots for their lifestyle and thier music (oi, punk, ska, reggae, rockabilly). SHARP (SkinHeads Against Racial Prejudice) skins are the democrats of the skinhead world, accepting all and defending thir way of life. A skinhead friend of mine once told me that he only fights for 3 things: his family, his friends and his honor. This is what is important to skinheads, not "protecting the white race" or to carry out Hilter's unfinished work.

It's something you are. It's not a style. It's not a fad. It's a way of life. Skinheads will live on as long as there fat cats in power who don't give a sh#t about the youth of today. We're proud, we're pi$$ed and we're here to stay.
"The Hebrew Hammer aka zak" got the sh#t kicked out of him by a traditional skin he was bad-mouthing. With your intolerance, you're no better than the very nazis and supremacists you ridicule. Open up your eyes before a real skinhead opens up your skull, free of charge..."

A subculture that developed in 1960s Britain by combining elements of English mods and immigrant Jamaican rude boys. They mainly listened to ska, reggae and soul music. In the 1970s, some were also influenced by the punk rock scene and began to listen to Oi! music, also known as streetpunk.

Skinheads first started to appear durring the late 60's in England. Skinheads were an off shoot to the mods and football(soccer)holligans called "boot boys". they took great pride in their dress and a proper skinhead could be seen wearing a button down brutus, ben sherman or any proper shirt. braces(suspenders, not the fat hillbilly grandpa kind but thin)a levi jacket or an american flight jacket. levi staprest trousers, blue jeans and sometimes cammo pants, allthough the combat trousers were not worn until the revival and the comming of punk rock.Fred Perry polo shirts are also very popular with skinheads as are V neck sweaters and vests. music listened to by skinheads from the 60's to 70's could consist of reggae, ska, soul, glam such as slade, mott the hoople, small faces. With the punk scene in the 70's came a rebirth of the skins allthough this time the look was exageated a bit, boots were higher and bleached jeans and combat fatigues could be seen worn by the new breed. During this time a right wing political group known as the National Front (NF)started using skinheads as pawns (polititians both right and left have tried using the scene for their own gain). there were many punk bands that were being followed by the skins, notably bad manners (ska) sham 69, Skrewdriver( before the nazi days)angelic upstarts.Shortly a new breed of punk music was born thanks to bands like the cockney rejects, this music was called "OI!", notable oi! bands are; the 4skins, last resort, snix, early skrewdriver, red alert. Skinheads reached America at the end of the 70's/early 80's and there has always been a close connection between the american skin and the hardcore scene. bands such as Agnostic front, Cro mags, murphy's law and warzone all had members who were skins or friends with skins. Today there seems to be a new trend of extreme left wing skins, redskins, communist,socialist,anarchist, who seem to be being used by politics yet again, most however grow up and realize extremist politics are a no win game. Not all skinheads are racist but some definately are. On the west coast (USA)many skins grow up being somewhat influenced by the chicano gang culture (cholo)it is not uncommon to see skins looking a bit more like cholos, after all skinheads have always been a gang subculture.
OI! OI! skin head, get yer hair cut!

skinheads are NOT NAZIS!!!! naziskins are called boneheads. skinheads are people who take pride in their working class heritage and often listen to oi, reggae, or ska. The Skinhead culture began in Jamaica, and was very closely tied to the Rude Boy culture. Some of the original Rude boys were also considered the original Skinheads.
WOW! That skinhead is not racist!
