Nice looking shop Yankmod, thanks for the adress. Only been to NY once, in 1990.

 

Ek: the problem with second hand MA1 is the elastic waistband and cuff: too loose.

i think the in the past blue model that Browniecj recently refered to looked like this one, in navy.

That is very similar to what I wore in `69(in blue).My memory banks always remember thesese-there has been others shown in other Photos,with dark insides,

Recently there was talk about the "Low waisted Levi's" I bought a pair of Black 511(skinny) and the waist was very high compared to the other 511's.Thats when I noticed they was Made In China.Try the chinese  made Levi's.

Elwood, good photo of the Leather/Suede Jacket.

I wish to take you back to `57.John Stephens had opened his first Shop ,in Carnaby Street(a scruffy backstreet in Soho).He wanted to expand the colourful,vibrant Fashion of Gay Men-into Street Fashion.Fast forward to `64,The same Street had now become a place to be.The second wave of Mods wanted to bring a lot more colour into their lives.On the T.V. and in Cinemas,it was trendy to show how Life was like-living in dingy,smoke blackened backstreets.Most of us came from that background.I did not want to go to the Cinema and watch People working in Factories or down Pubs etc.It was all around me.The older Mods would always slag you off as commercial etc.But did we care-Nah!!!.
The Outfits that half of the group "Dave Dee,Dozy,Beaky,Mick and Titch" may seem outlandish today but back in the early 60s they were a breath of fresh air.It was something to look in the windows(nobody does that anymore,because there is hardly any window display).You had to be quick though as they only had one for a size.After that had gone,they had moved on.Colour was the key then-it is hard to understand that now-with colour all around.Back then it was mostly Blues and Greys.

PS.I have seen some present day Skinheads wear similar combinations. smile.gif

Just received my J Press 3 button, nice jacket but needs softening  up to make it sit nice, bit stiff at the moment ( no pun intended )

The vintage MA-1's invariably have holes in the cuffs,collar or waistband due to the fact that they are wool and the moths got to them.Replacements are available but I have no idea where to get them sewn on correctly.I wouldn't trust my local tailor.Has anyone had this done?What were the results (Pics).

I've found one company via the net but it aint cheap and this leans me toward a pristine new top quality Japanese repro.

This company in Japan sells the parts in different colours and it works out to be around $55 bucks for the parts.You can also find them on Ebay in limited colours.

Looking back through the thread and people ( me included ) have mentioned clothing or footwear that they wore "back in the day" that they wouldnt wear now.Are there things that you do wear now that you didnt wear then ? ( maybe because it wasnt available or even made then ). I wear long sleeve polo shirts now on cold days,i dont know if they existed then but i never saw any, same with brogue boots,i have some Loakes,they are great on a cold wet day.I also bought a cropped trenchcoat recently ( black ), i think that Mods wore them but i never saw any late 60s early 70s,i think it looks good with trousers and brogues.

Good question! Linen clothing in summer – blazer, trousers, shirts. But I have never really liked the creased look so only one piece at a time! Classic English Oxford shoes, brogues, semi-brogues and plain cap. I find these more suitable with business wear. I also wear long sleeve polos but never quite feel right in them. That may be because they are Polo RL and I think the cut is too tube-like. Over the calf socks. Bow ties in the day time (I am a member of the Bow Tie Club of Britain and Ireland). A t shirt under a BD in winter. Belts with jeans. Its quite a long list when I come to write it down….
