What is a power suit? - Page 2

post #16 of 17
I have a history of English fashion, and the Teddy Boy thing was apparently pure Fifties and very adolescent in scope, so MacNee's clothes had no relation. Interesting: we tend to think of 007 and the Avengers as contemporaries, but Patrick MacNee was a well preserved near fifty when the series debuted-- he was a bonafide British naval officer during the Second World War, which puts him a full generation behind Sean Connery.

I stand corrected on the origin of the Teddy Boys. Tom Wolfe was writing about them in the 60s, but I guess he doesn't really claim that they originated in the 60s.
