About Pirate '69 Streetwear

Our subculture represents the working class. Our roots can be traced back to the 1960s, when the first Jamaican and British Mods evolved in their style. This shift became somehow apparent when the Mod subculture started to slow down in 1966. Among this youth there was the -hard case- element growing up. Thanks to the emergence of the Hard Mods, then called Skinheads by the media, we today have a strong and unified community of brothers and sisters. We take pride in our style and beliefs, and will continue to dress sharp and be ready to bovver.

Pirate '69 Streetwear was founded in 2001 by trading with the most rare and priceless garments in the Skinhead / Mod / Rude-Boy scene. We then made it attainable at a working class' budget. The value of our rarest and hardest-to-find clothing, shoes and accessories extends far beyond money because they are loaded with historical and fraternal meaning, as they are a symbol of generations of camaraderie. Our ideal as a trading company is to help maintain and protect our way of life by keeping our scene alive and stylish.

A Bit Of History:

The Skinhead fashion evolved from the Mod fashion during the early sixties. The style was a mix between the Ivy and the Jamaican look. The Hard Mod and Skinhead trend became a staple for many working class youth during 1969 and onwards.

Despite their great appeal for raising some bovver, they always looked dapper with their short cropped hair, Ben Sherman button-down shirts, Sta Prest trousers, spit-shined Dr Martens boots and narrow clip-on braces. Skinheads found their way into the hearts of many with their aggro attitude and smart polished look.

Pirate'69 is dedicated to all true past and present subculture lovers - mods, peanuts, lemons, bovver boys and girls, cropheads, suedeheads, hard mods, rudies, smoothies, sorts, byrds and skins - who truly understand that our culture is not merely about a haircut or clothing style; it's a way of life that prides itself in our camaraderie and unity. Today more than ever we are inclusive and empowering of our racial, cultural, and geographic diversity.
