I have a hacking jacket from House of Bruar. I got it for £40 at the charity shop, good as new Round here Bruar is thought of as exclusively for country toffs (the sort that wear pink trousers, yellow shoes, green sweater, mauve shirt, and blue jacket), so I love to subvert their clobber.
Link, please (sorry!).
All noted. BUT - and it's a big one - 'You Really Got Me' and 'All Day And All Of The Night', were rock. They had edge. Their later material, classy though it may have been, psychedelic though it can be argued to have been, and as much as I appreciated it, was about as 'rock' as a plate of jelly.

'Oh Carolina' by the Folkes Brothers was often played in the Savoy Rooms, Catfiord, in 68/69.
An essential part of the mod soundtrack is now no longer with us.

Funnily enough, that was something that marked the deliberate moving-away from strict skinhead fashion - at least in SE London - and the very swift transition via 'suedehead' to arty fashions. The first things a bloke would do would be to grow his hair and unbutton the collar buttons of the Ben Sherman. The next new shirt would not be a button-down. The next new strides would be a pair of lionels...
