Mod to Suedehead - Page 1122

post #16816 of 19147

Bunking fares on the London Underground. Looks late 70s/early 80s.

Nice one, Inks.

 

For 2014, FP launches a new sub-collection : trying to cash in on name recognition perhaps ?

No suedehead I knew would have been seen dead in that.  The hair is more 1964 Mod-ish.

Even now I wake up in the night after a dream about my 1968 court appearance for the same 'crime'.....

Agree with you, of course. Most of the recent years FP collections are rather ugly. They better keep on their classics. After the "graphic suedehead", they will try the "pop-art skinhead" maybe?

Yes, I'm sure they will.  I think FP went for some time ignoring the skinhead connection completely but now there is more interest in the movement they will no doubt do a U-turn!

You'd think FP would know enough not to misappropriate the name Suedehead to something they're hawking. Then again, they've probably wrung every penny out of their historical link to Mods and Skinheads by now. Suedehead has been pretty much left alone by subsequent generations. Now it seems like we're probably going to have a bunch of wrongly-attired, Hipster berks calling themselves Seudeheads in the near future. Gawd 'elp us.

Did they beat the shit out of you with billy clubs when they caught you?

The deadstock BD I ordered from the US arrived today. I've been after a BD with a decent mid-late 60s length collar for ages. It's a polyester knit, but at under £20 delivered, I'm not complaining.

One of the contestants on tonight's Mastermind is a tasty looking Mod bird.

We'll just refer to them as 'Pseudheads'.

You'll be referring to Katie Johnston. Yes, very 'Mary Quant'.
