Interesting piece on ModgenerationLen Peters -'......Didn't you have one in the sixties then Moose ? Most of us did, a tanker jacket was just a Summer parka, USAF blue,olive or sand,very very common amongst the proper scooter kids,but we shopped at the surplus not Carnaby Street , that was for the tourists and pretenders mate ;-) They were the mod jacket before the pretty coloured Harrington arrived :-)We used to wear em in Summer before Harringtons came out,they were the...
Great photo of the lads from 'The Wheel'That see-you-next-Tuesday Jeremy Clarkson has finished the 'jacket with jeans' look for me.It was a good casual Mod style, one which you don't see often these days.At what point do jeans look just too faded to wear with a jacket/blazer though?
Good finds Ed and Loempiavreter, here's another from '70 - Gill, River Thames July 1970. Grown out crop , boy's shirt, Levi's cords. Nothing to do with the thread, but this forthcoming BBC2 drama looks interesting - Birmingham's Peaky Blinders.

'.....metal toe-capped boots, bell bottom trousers “22 inches...

Great photo, apparently Adidas made bowling shoes in the 60s, maybe that's what the lad is wearing.*Not relevant at all, but made me smile -Another medal, Muttley? *EDIT No it isn't, they haven't got a heel.

Very good sir. We missed the Acid Mods one a few pages back....(Between The) Buttons.Can shorts ever look good chaps?I know it's not Skinhead related but tailored shorts - yes/no.Are there any really decent 'formal' shorts that look good with a crispy white shirt? I did try the ensemble once but Mrs B. said I looked like one of the Hitler Youth....The English male in summertime - we just can't get it right can we? Interesting reading about the first of the Mohicans...
'Villain' (1971) starring Richard Burton, was a good film when I last saw it years ago (probably dated now) similar to 'Get Carter'. Anyone remember it?And 'Kes' (1969) for checking out the extras.Couldn't resist posting this photo, just to annoy Little Queenie - denim, Chambray shirts, Paul and George's bleached jeans 1965. Other than his barnet, Ringo looks quite dapper.
