Skinheads: Under The Skin

As subcultures go, the skinheads have always been the ones who stand out most to me. With their diverse looks and standoffish nature they are a force to be reckoned with; and that’s what I love about them, that “not caring what anyone thinks” attitude. They do what they want and wear what they like. The original skinhead style is very gender neutral based, with most the the look being shaved heads, tight jeans, and Doc Martens. Males and females, black and white, could wear near identical outfits and be seen as the same, as equals. I admire that aspect a lot; for a brief time there was equality.
