Agreed on the swivel bar cufflinks. Suppose it's a matter of taste really.



Nice scores, M-o-M. Was the shop worth a mooch-in? I'm usually in Washington near Chrimbo.

People 'say too much' with cufflinks, thinking of a pair of silver blanks for engraving - only with no engraving

Functional for a double cuff shirt, ie: not an accessory

I don't know where you get the idea I'm near Washington. I'm an ocean from DC and a few hours by train from the Washington that sits between Sunderland and Newcastle-upon-Tyne!

I'm in Perth, Scotland, and so's the shop. At other times I'm on campus in Edinburgh - and I know where all the vintage clothes shops are in that city! smile.gif

Our discussion earlier this week about how we interpret 'the Look' and how our personal preferences depend where we take it made me cosider something,are we the first ones to think like this ?

 

I had a little look around and noticed that some people in bands seem to have had Mod influences in their 'style' ,now we may or may not agree with how they chose to update things ( their personal preference ) but I think that Oasis and the Stone Roses both might come into this category.

 

The other thing that occured to me was that an individuals age and location could have a good deal to do with how he saw 'the Look' in the first place.

 

I am sure that there must be other examples of people who have used 'the Look' as an influence in present day style.

😳 I got my wires crossed! Reading and replying on a mobile phone makes for interesting reading and posting on my part. My humble apologies to M-o-M and Mr K.

I think Damon Albarn is another example. 

Started 'casual'


and 'Perry boy'


Much later he had a suedehead phase...


And finally 'mod'...

Interesting..I wonder if these bands dress in a certain way to stimulate interest ?

There must be other people besides musicians who were influenced by 'the Look' and use it as a template for their style,but as they wouldnt be so high profile we probably dont see pictures of them.

^ I think it is all because it is just good stuff. But is the whole greater than the sum of the parts? I see it on Blur and Oasis and others but I don't 'get it' from them. I agree with Botolph up the thread though, it needs youth not some old fart like myself.

Here is another photo of Damon in skinhead clothes. I read somewhere (probably here even) that this was their early look before they were warned off on account of the political connotations.

Yes Albarn as more than often had a look near to skinhead. One or two years ago i saw him playing with blur, his hairs were short, he wore navy Baracuta, faded 501 and 8 holes oxblood DMs...
Funny thing, he went the way backward, from Casual to Mod…

This is a bit different from the point I was trying to make about people being influenced by 'the Look' and then giving it their twist or updating it.

He just seems to be  dressing up in some clothes that Skinheads (Mods or Casuals) used to wear,a bit like the  re-enactors do.

I don't really agree with that about Damon Albarn, he's got a strong individuality and at the same time he is part of a line. I know this is personal preference but i always found Blur much more interesting than Oasis.

Stone Roses were very original too, and i think i understand what you mean about them. Their style was more an evolution of The Look, adapting it to clothes of their time, and with sometimes a bit of personal research (like the multi-colored jumpers or paintings on their musical instruments, if i remember well - too many acids maybe :D).

I am only talking about their clothing style,to be honest I hadnt heard of the Stone Roses before I started searching for Mod influences yesterday.

I know nothing about any of their music but I do see a Mod /Casual influence in all 3 bands clothing styles,mind you the pictures that I am looking at could be quite old.

I have seen some pictures of paul Weller (again I dont know how old they are) and you can see that he is Mod inspired / influenced,but whether anyone thinks that his look is good or age appropriate is down to personal preference.

Blurs "casual " phase was during their Parklife days, they wore the hard mod/skinhead look during the Modern Life is Rubbish phase which was the album before Parklife. Although they seem to mash it all up as of late. Their first album saw them sporting the madchester bowl cut and love beads look was truly terrible haha!
I'm a bit of a Blur nerd hahaha😊
