HELP.......Unusual request?

Mayfield

Burbury Brummie
I know this request may sound strange to most of this forum but I am hoping that there is an old Skin Head out there???? Does anyone have a pair of old skin head boots (size 8/9) that they can loan me because this sad bald headed person is going to a fancy dress party as a Skin Head (for those that know me this took a lot of imagination)? :rolleyes:

I am looking for either knee high Doc Martins or Monkey Boots if anyone has them hiding in their loft? If not, can anyone point me in the direction of a fancy dress shop that would stock this type of antiquated footware? Mabz :)

How far are you willing to travel Keith as there are a couple of fancy dress shops I know of?. One at Castle Bromwich and the other on the Slade road. Jean.
