While there can be some variations, such as PVC around the cuffs, pockets and on the elbow, this one royally takes the piss.

Wish they wouldn't try and modernise traditional stuff though and there are no places that seem to sell these on the high street, no army surplus, army and navy around this neck of the woods any more where I bought my original one 'donkeys' years ago. I remember one funny incident happening when I went out to dinner with one of my old Skinheadmates from Bristol who lived in Tiel, Holland at the time where I am from and a group of English lads( all contract workers) that he knew. Etsy’s 100% renewable electricity commitment includes the electricity used by the data centres that host Etsy.The photo in the ad shows the arms covering the pockets so hides another little oddity and that's the small side pockets that are build into the actual pockets but really these are hardly noticeable and quite a useful feature. They've also got these silly little flaps with buttons over the pockets which were never on mine 35+ years ago, so I got a sharp pointy scissors and carefully cut the stitching and removed them.

The donkeyjacket is so out of fashion now that it makes em laugh , but then again it is so British it makes em very proud! The donkey jacket was also worn by the rockabillys and teddy boys in London in the 1970s and is still seen worn by them dont get confused with the hipster as the rockabilly image has been adopted by them.I lived and dressed, as close as I could, to the traditional skinhead style, for the best part of 30 years. Ideal transitional garments, our timeless staple jackets offer you the option to layer, depending on the required look.

local variations are still a part of the look to me in my opinion, like with levi jackets with sewn on patch, cord wranglers etc in the north.

The front vertical edges fall straight and are squared-off at the bottom edge which is also straight horizontally with no vent at the back. Like many donkey jackets in the 1960s, it has the company’s name on the collar, so it is very possible they were made to company specification.

Unlike other items of clothing, the donkey jacket doesn’t have much of a recorded history – unsurprising, given that it has always been considered more workwear than fashion item. I remember now that 2 of the main characters of the above mentioned series were wearing a donkeyjacket constantly namely Tim Healy that plays Dennis and Pat Roach that plays the character of Bomber.
