I'm only surprised that some entrepreneur hasn't taken pubescent muzos and dressed them like this before.

For the benefit of those who don't want to investigate.The Strypes are 1.Irish 2. 15 to 17 years old  3. Imitating the sound and visual style of the British Blues Boom of the early 60's.Very strange but in lite of the fact that they are signed to Sir Elton J's Company makes a little more sense.

You walked around Dalston lately .

  Watched a vid clip.  The bass player beggars belief as he plays his hollow body in SUCH a '60s style(read "outdated", not "cool/retro"biggrin.gif).  They're definitely trying very, very hard and probably have a fashion consultant... but most of the '70s bands I enjoy like Slade, Mott, etc., surely did, too, so whatevs.  

  Kinda cool man!  Definitely appreciate it from a sartorial standpoint.  If they play Boston they'll probably play a tiny place; I'll check 'em out if so!

Botolph. The Paradise may be a place the Strypes play.They got Sir Elton's money to promote.

I walked around Balham a couple of weeks ago, is that similar? One night in London, save me getting up early for going to Heathrow.

Kingstonian, I was in Cardiff shopping centre ( a very good shopping centre IMO ) this week and i went into House of Fraser,there were some suits in the sale by Racing Green that were in the pale Prince of Wales check with a light blue overcheck ( wool ).When i got home i looked on their website but the only P.o.W suit said lavender and it didnt look like the one that i had seen,i did e;mail Racing Green and they replied but they werent able to help me.I will look in House of Fraser in Bristol this week,they were nice suits and you can buy the trousers seperately.Whilst in Cardiff i went into Slaters ( there isnt a branch in Bristol ), i was quite impressed,it was an old fashioned type of shop,very helpful staff,they had some interesting items and also offer a free alteration service.

Mr Knightley. I am looking forward to seeing the pictures of your blazer.Would you wear a pocket handkerchief in that style of blazer ?, i have seen people wearing pocket handkerchiefs in patch pocket blazers are there any " rules " about this ?

Some mention of age a few pages back,when people had stopped dressing skinhead style and Ed Vaughan saying about the 75 year old Ted and time to move on.With that in mind i saw the pictures from Glastonbury of Keith Richards....Then on the radio this morning some people were saying that he is the coolest man alive !,then other people rang in saying no Paul Mcartney is the coolest ( haha ) some others said Paul Weller,then quite interesting i thought Jean Jacques Burnel ! out of the four i would sayJJ by a mile . I have mentioned dressing suitably for my age before and the older guys here generally agreed,well i think that Keith Richards gives a good lesson on how NOT to dress or act suitably ( unless you want to look like a sad old twat of course ! ) IMO.

I like the Strypes.They recapture the energy of the early R&B Scene in London-before it went weird!!!
