I think Steve McQueen is a great example of the issues we've been discussing. Not of true 'Ivy League' culture, he borrowed some of the look to develop his own style. He was not a devotee of Ivy as he did not slavishly follow the look and wore many other types of clothes. Surely this is the essence of Mod through to Suedehead - we adopted and adapted those items that suited us at a particular moment in time, regardless of where the origins of those influences arose.
