Sandals? Bob The Badger, I thought you were taking the gypsy's and I was waiting for the punchline. I've heard of Mods wearing those blue canvas sailing shoes in the summer ('67 ish) along with nondescript plimsolls, trainers and Converse style 'bumpers' but never sandals. Brilliant stuff. Buttons - That photo of the lad wearing the Dr Scholls, how did you find that for flip's sake?
I've just read it too and agree with D.S.I Buttons. It's funny, I cringe when I see 'modern' Weller-type Mods with that bloody barnet but at least they mean well. (But so did Hitler as Spike Milligan once said ) Just found this, an assortment of '67 Mod styles - Mods outside the club Tiles. Bee Gees Live Performance,1967
Just found this, and bugger me - tartan hats! No dates, any guesses? As a 7 year old, this is the car I dreamed of owning in the late 60s Failing that, the Monkees' car would have sufficed!

Just outside North London -Collarless 'Union' shirts - No.Grandad vests -No.Army Greens - Yes, twice - '68 ish and again later '71.Donkey Jackets - Yes, briefly '68. As said, work-wear that was a fad on the terraces.Thick cardies - No, only the 'thin' ones. Worn right through the '60s, from the earlier Mod days onwards. As were V-neck jumpers/knitted long sleeved polo shirts.Trilbies - Yes, 'casually' with jeans etc. Pork pies were worn earlier.A local quirk - Levis were...
I think this is relevant - From Danny Baker's book, 'Going to Sea in a Sieve' 'Martin Connor, a boy about my age who I knew quite well, had
