Suedehead is not really in use anymore, except maybe by freshcut skinheads. Suedehead was a term for skins who had grown their hair out a bit and were, in dress, less shocking than the skins. You were more likely to catch them in a long coat with an umbrella (tip sharp and painted black), than in boots and braces.
He used to be a skin, but he's a suedehead now.
