Looks quite good, but i wouln't wear one too.

A slightly different colour,the one I saw was like cigarette tobacco colour, I have been trying to remember if I have seen one before but I don't think that I have not even in a shop.

Brooks Bros have done them for many years,though the older ones used better quality lamb skin IMO.Ralph Lauren also,again with the quality varying depending on the division(polo,RL,purple Label etc)
Golden Bear also is a good brand.They supplied John Simons with his leather ones.
All of these have the "batwing" back.BTW.

Thanks Clouseau, I will have a nightmare tonight now.

I was thinking about those round collar shirts,i remember some where the top of the chest,shoulders ,and the top of the back was a different colour to the rest of the shirt,i think it was called a yoke shirt ?,I remember navy blue and white and they might have been Brutus.

I am still looking online at jeans,still thinking Lee 100z but it really is a minefield.

Cerneabbas, i was thinking about the recent talk of the beginning and the end. This must be the end... And when you mentioned the "rubbish" clothing...

 

Well let's go back to the early beginnings. And no nigthmares!

Mods in Soho. Already close to a suedehead look.

Mods in Soho, 1965. Already close to a suedehead look.

 

Clouseau..Now that's better,interesting to see all those white socks...umbrellas too they were down here much later ( unless I was to young to remember them being here earlier ).

Raincoats,umbrellas and a couple of silk scarves...I am guessing June or July in England !

I agree with the theory that Skinheads returned to Mod influences ( in Suedehead ) because the Skinhead look attracted too much attention from the Police and stopped them from going into certain pubs,dance halls etc......much the same as later Skins turned to the Casual look  IMO.

Just noticed that 50p on the sign the picture has to be later than 60s......70s or 80s

Actually, i don't really know when this picture was shot. It's on a site with the title  "Suedeheads, 1972".

but the photo was legended "Mods in the west end, 1965"... Sounds a bit weird on both cases.

We changed to the "new" money in 1971...so it could be 72 but the white socks and loafers look could be late 70s or 80s IMO.

Went back on the site. It exactly says "Suedehead meet in Soho 1972".

Maybe some Londoners could give their opinion on the "50p Lovely girls live on stage". :D Sounds cheap for the 80s?

The Picture looks/feels quite old, but that may be the Black and white effect...

I wondered about the 50p price,but I don't know,

I think that the girls skirts might be a clue but I am not sure about that,i do remember girls wearing tweed skirts early 70s.

I think all those white socks and Weejun type loafers make it look later to me...but I think it could be 72.

I'm guessing 81-83, because of the peep-show price. I went and saw The Truth at The Marquee in Sept '83 and noticed the peep-shows were all 50p then. The girls skirt is pretty late 70s early 80s. The girls at my school wore that type around then. One of the guys looks to be wearing actual moccasins, as opposed to moccasin penny-loafers. There was a brief fad of Mods and Scooterists wearing soled moccasin slippers with white Terry socks round my way about then as well. The signage on the Kebab shop and The Raymond Revue in 'Poppers Alley' looks from about that time as well.

Its early 80s, my mate Paul Hallam is 5th from the right. Think its one of the dos or night outs he arranged around that time.

Well, sorry for the mistake. Should have only posted the drinking smoothie's picture...
But those eighties lads got style, even if the picture is off topic.
