Guys, shall we agree we've had our say on this?

No problem M-o-M,dont want to be looked upon. as "jealousy schoolgirls" do we ? smile.gif

Starting to read "Mods-The New Religion" by Paul "Smiler"Anderson.It is about the "Mod Scene" all over the Country,with the memories being remembered by those who were actually there.Steve Ellis,60s Mod and Lead Singer Of The Love Affair, has written(I quote)"Mods:The New Religion is THE Book about the real Mod Scene.The nearest you can get to a Mod Bible".I am pretty sure that our Book,M-o-M,would follow along the same Lines.There is interest out there.
There is another Mod Book going through,at the moment,called"Sawdust Caesars" by Tom Beesley.This is a more "localised" Book dealing with Mods around the City of Lincoln and surrounding areas.I have read a Preview of this-the Guy,Glenn Fields, who runs the Ad-Lib Club(which I have Djed at,in Lincoln) is featured in it.Another interesting read. smile.gif

Some wine/blue tonic strides by Adaptor. Wool, and not the usual Viscose. One of my favourite colour-combos (Relco and Warrior do a wine/black mix). But, frogmouth pockets. I would have preferred slant-pockets. They're 15" bottoms n'all, so they'd look like Capri-pants on my Shearer-esque stumps.

I like the Colour combination as we.Back in the 60s I had a pair of Trousers Wine/Blue with a Black Check Tonic.Gawd knows what 15" would look on my Legs.........smile.gif

One last word about the Dr Martens "spirit of 69" collection.

If i can understand the association with Brutus, Trojan, or Alpha MA-1s, i don't get it with Edwin jeans. OK the brand was founded in Japan in 1969, but i doubt you could find their jeans in UK at the time ! Levi's, Lee, or Wrangler would have been more appropriate.

Speaking of boots/shoes, well that's what DMs are known for, they speak for their "Spirit of 69" collection of "archive models". All i can see here are models they are re-doing for some years now, and nothing new apart the 4 eyelets, that were a Hawkins model from what i know (but maybe Airwair, known for their 3 eyelets, did them too at one point ?). I dig them BTW. (I know DM shoes are not very appreciated here, even if some originals like Brideshead/MrK, Browniecj, and A&E admitted they wore them between 1968 and 1970.)
