Eastside Knits v Eastside Sharps

 

Tough, wearable knits that make a difference are integral to the heritage and history of our hometown,
Collingwood,
in inner city Melbourne.
Back in the 70's specialty knit shops in the area
took local kids designs and milled out custom knits.
These local kids known as Sharpies, or Sharps,
moved as crews,
were untouchable, partied at local town halls and early discos,
stand up ready,
they liked a good fight and
walked to their own strict moral code. 
Importantly, they also had a reputation for looking good.
It was all about the clothes and
looking sharp!
