flyfronted,some of these pic were posted earlier in the thread (but not all) Thanks for posting the rest.This is basically my look as well as being the year I was born.Very cool Watts Cats(this is Watts L.A.)You can tell by the massive sculpture they are photographed amongst.It was made by an Italian immigrant on his land and is now a protected Heritage site enjoyed by all.

Check out the third photo. The guy perched on the bin, with the thin turn-ups and the dusty-looking desert boots is wearing almost exactly the kind of zipper jacket I have been talking about earlier in the thread. It was universal 'up North' in 1967/68 and was still being worn in S E London when I arrived in 68. I seem to remember the collar on our's being a little bigger, but that might just be the way the guy in the photo is wearing it.

Nowadays it seems impossible to get one like that, they all have white piping.

I've ran into plenty of examples of such jackets and they are usually from the 70's by a company called swingster which usually specializes in those nylon jackets with the snap buttons but I've saw plenty of cotton zip ones too, they don't seem to hold up too well over the years after repeated washings.

The following is taken from a book by Wendy Cooper: Hair. Sex, Society, Symbolism. Aldus Books Ltd. London 1971.

Interesting Photos Bunty.I would have put one of them a bit later,than`64.The Skirts are a bit short for then(normally Mod Girls are shown with Knee-Length Skirts).Bloody Gorgeous both Girls though.The Fair Isle I am trying to recall when they came out previous to the Suedehead time.I know there was a flirtation with them about `66.But these were Sleeveless.In the early 60s Colour Photos were quite expensive to buy-that is why the Photos you see from that time are mainly Black and White.smile.gif

The ones I remember from the 60s had no snap buttons, just a single zipper.

Bunty & Brownie...

Going by what the girls are wearing I would say that the b/w photo is from well before 1968. By that time I hadn't seen any mod blokes anywhere wearing roll-neck sweaters for quite some time. How about you, Brownie?

Very interesting to see a smattering of Harringtons.

By the way, what the dickens is that bloke at the back of the b/w shot doing?

Perhaps he fancied himself as Christopher Lee?...

I would say, as a skirt wearer, that her skirt is riding up because of the way she is perched on the wall. The lad behind her is holding her up; notice how rumpled her coat is.

I take your point Little Queenie.But the Fair Isle is thought provoking.
