Depends. The original skinheads weren't racists. They had nothing to do with Stormfront. Far-right groups started a split and the Neo-Nazi "skinheads" came into fruition.

To be honest, I don't remember anyone wearing the Chelsea cut in the 90s. I remember some girls doing the "quickie cut" where they would have short hair, but not the Chelsea cut. I remember more of the 70s revival styles than that style. Perhaps everything I know is checkered by the fact that I was born in 1986.

They're not anymore (at least the ones I bought recently)

I had a bomb-ass pair of DM's in the 80's and those were heavy, made with substantial rich leather in ENGLAND.

The shoes I bought from Amazon a couple of years ago were stamped Dr. Marten's, but were made in CHINA with cheap leather that scratched off at the toe during the first wear. It was almost as if the leather was sprayed on. The shoes were also very light, not substantial at all. Looked cheap as hell, and I ended up throwing them in the trash after about 2 weeks.

I remember a girl in my Midwestern high school getting a Chelsea in the mid-'80s. Are you sure it was a '90s style?

Chelsea was more 80s.

The jacket and boots are cool but that haircut is gross. It reminds me of that biitchy daughter (Becky) on Roseanne. She had that style for a season and it looked ridiculous.

I remember the "Dorothy Hamill Haircut" of the late-70s. Similar to the "Chelsea" but more of a wedge cut

Yeah, the only place I ever saw that look was on Fairuza Balk's body in American History X.

I used to see it everywhere in the college town where I lived and NONE of those people were neo-Nazi skinheads.

I had long straight hair in the 90s, but the doc martins and plaid flannel shirts everyone was wearing. I dressed a bit oddly and didn't follow trends much. I used to love wearing Indian sari fabric skirts with my Docs and vintage men's sport jackets or army jackets with leather chokers and such. That all started in the late 80s when I was in high school too.

I used to go to New Hope, PA with my sisters back then to shop (for those Indian skirts and incense and stuff) and wore one of my usual outfits of boots, German surplus army jacket and flowy skirt. Little did we know that there was actually a white supremacist rally going on in a nearby park. Finally one shop keeper asked if I was with them. I was properly mortified and took off the jacket right away.

The look came from punk fashion that started way back in the 70s.
