I think the fashions was pretty authentic for the period. You have to take into account the backgorunds of the characters. It would make them appearpretty shallow if they had lost their identity with the skinhead scene after only a few years.
Up North was probably still more inclined towards mod fashion than the south in the late 80s...even throughout the 90's it was still strong. Oasis and the Northern music scene were heavily influenced by mod culture.
I believe Channel 4 have already signed up Meadows for a 'This is England 90' series to follow next year.
