The Look goes on... - Page 139post #2072 of 27947/7/16 at 7:35amThread Starterpost #2073 of 27947/7/16 at 8:38amThread Starter
Today I am wearing an outfit, which, apart from the monkstraps, is very close to my style of early 1970 here:post #2074 of 27947/8/16 at 8:05amThat's a great look Mr. K. I have a tie in the exact same colours in satin silk from CT. I'm not sure if I've ever worn it. I did a blog post a long time ago about another tie in dark colours (royal blue and black stripes). I find that repp stripes are a more casual daytime standard but dark colours equate more with evening formality, so as much as I liked the colour of that tie I hardly ever wore it. Ditto for dark burgundy and navy, although you've folded it into a great outfit here which gives me some inspiration, I'd usually be more inclined to reach for a striped tie in brighter colours.post #2075 of 27947/8/16 at 1:13pmThread StarterQuote:Originally Posted by Thin White Duke

Thanks mate. I wonder if it's to do with the light. In these damp islands where it is dullish most of the year more muted colours seem appropriate. I am sure you will remember just how miserable it can be - even in summer. I do have some brighter ties but the more subdued ones always seem to come to the front of the wardrobe!post #2076 of 27947/8/16 at 1:38pmQuote:Originally Posted by Mr Knightley

Yeah I'm sure you're right. I still shudder when I think of English weather as I reckon I probably had SAD and used to get depressed with the sleet and rain. No problem here in Florida! I have a load of brighter coloured stuff that elicits derision from some viewers of my blog but context is everything. A lot of my more daring (= brighter) stuff I wouldn't be caught dead in if I had to move back home but gets plenty of wear over here. I always reckoned the original sixties Mods' aspirations weren't to be shuffling around wintry London in a parka but to be cruising the riviera seafront on their scoot wearing a bright linen suit and Italian mocs!post #2077 of 27947/11/16 at 3:56amThread Starterpost #2078 of 27947/11/16 at 5:27amNot one for watching tv but I caught the end of a programme on teddy boys last week and it struck me just how subdued that 50s look was, very grey and suit and overcoat, and nothing at all like comedy teds in dayglo. Seems to me that our look is simply an explosion of Resort Wear into that world, onto new people and into new places. Resort Wear, the sort of thing that (Jeeves and) Wooster would wear to a Swiss sanitorium. I have never heard of Daks being a mod or skinhead thing yet this, in 1963, is clearly that look but earlier and aimed differently. It's Resort Wear!

Some Crockett and Jones ox-blood brogues, needing some TLC. My size, but a narrow fitting.
An Italian-made lightweight suit, with four buttons. Size 36". Any of you got a nephew into mod revival?post #2083 of 27947/14/16 at 2:15amThread Starter
I rather like a four button suit - haven't got one at the moment...
Now this Friday Challenge is right up your street, chaps - the BD collar:post #2084 of 27947/14/16 at 5:44amThread Starter
So, 12.30 at the Clachan (just behind Liberty) and I have PM'ed those who had expressed an interest but who may not drop in here very often.
To date the following have confirmed:
See you there.
Any theme? Safari Jacket maybepost #2085 of 27947/14/16 at 8:39am
