Cheers. I'll have to have a look at those Brooks Brothers shirts. I remember RL did some lairy-coloured BDs that looked like jockey silks about 15-20 years ago. Awful bloody things.

The shirt has quite a nice slim cut to it, but it's an arse-ache to take on and off, because there's no give to the fabric. Pretty impractical actually.

That's interesting, browniecj. From the bits and pieces I've read it seems Mr. G. (however pronounced) almost saw Deep Soul as his mission - and missionaries do get preachy. Still, a lot of the music he pushed was excellent which is all that matters in the end.

His Cds are top notch,I have most of them.What I refer to is the Lectures he would give,in the "Deep Room",before the music went on.facepalm.gif

Del Evans 1st May 1946 -26th February 2014. X x x

Gill and Del met in the early 1960s and became 'Continentalists' - see their 'Mod Togs' Facebook page and Jack that Cat Was Clean blog

I like the mission statement "We are glad to hear from anyone with memories of the time, but we do not rewrite history" - I hope we try to do the same thing here. Del & Gill were a smart couple.

The top picture reminds me of how, in the 1960s, I loved motor bikes but couldn't stand the soapy way Rockers dressed. Plus I loved black music.

Weirdly, I recall that the lads in my school, just outside Blackpool, in the mid 1960s, looked more like Teds than anything else, but everyone seemed to like Motown!

While on the subject of female mod style and people passing away, Samantha Juste - the young woman who used to spin the discs on the original Top of the Pops - died recently.

I know we have spoken a fair bit about John Simons recently but I'm not sure if we have seen this:

My favourite old scarf. Made by Joxtons. Lost at Christmas because of drunkenness. Mislaid somewhere between the pub in Ladbroke Grove, and the bench I woke up on in Neasden Parade. (Neasden wasn't on my way home, and I have no idea how I got there. Still had my hat on though.)

Those damn mischievous Whisky Fairies !

Yes, I noticed Roy's input.

 

The skinhead seems back in vogue - shortly after we changed the name of this thread!

I have usually seen them worn with a Crombie type coat,what do you wear yours with ?


Cern, took a quick pic on the school run as promised:






@Mr Knightley Love that Tootal, even better close up. Great colours.



And @Inks that's got to hurt, losing that. How it went AWOL made me smile though, but still got to hurt.

You must have been the best-dressed parent on the school run!

 

Yes, losing a scarf like that would be tragic!

Thanks Mr Knightley, don't know if that's true but kind of you nonetheless cheers.gif

Good to hear of John Simons - used to sell belts to him before I pulled out of selling to retailers - he did well with them too!
