The only people I ever knew to admit to wearing camel hair coats were Anthony Newley and Peter Sellers, whilst on the phone to 'Christine Keeler'.

Yes that is nice. Never had one myself but always liked the look of a darker sheepskin with dyed wool, this is its apogee.

50% off its £1600 price tag still wasnt enough for me to convince the Mrs it could be the next 5 years Birthday n Christmas presents together but the quality was amazing .

I have no need of a sheepie in Florida but that might be one of the nicest ones I've seen. Navy takes it away from looking like McCloud.

Interesting how weather and environment can influence ones choices.Do you have a replacement for the Sheepskin?

It never gets cold enough here to need anything like that. For six months you don't even need a jacket. I have a load of lightweight casual jackets that rarely get worn as the season is so short to need them.

I've been going to New York for work and dug out an old Crombie that was my Dad's to wear during their brutal winter months, and more recently got a great Hickey Freeman herringbone Chesterfield off eBay for $99

When I go home to northern England I have a leather pebble grain button front car coat, a bit like the style of that navy sheepskin, with a zip out thinsulate lining, which is low on my style scale but higher on the function scale. If I was in cold weather regularly I'd be tempted by a pea coat which serves a similar purpose. I've always believed that you can maintain a stylish look as much as you can, right up to the extremes of temperature when style has to take a back seat to function.

Looks to be a good blog, i appreciated the 'Mac' article, furthermore as i need a new one and i am searching for good and not too expensive options.

 

Just a little precision, from my French point of view, about the Paraboot article. You write : 'Paraboots are distinctive French wallabee style shoes (...)' Well the Paraboot 'Michael' (name of the model you're speaking of) dates of 1945, when the Clarks Wallabee dates of 1967. So i think it's more correct to say : Wallabees are Paraboots style shoes...

I'm splitting hairs i know...:D 

 

OK i'm going back to your blog now. Nice iconography.

You have certainly taken a lot of care with this blog, very mod in that sense, nice work.

 

Readers here I think might be esp. interested in this that you had up as it hasn't appeared on this forum I don't think.  I love this line "The remnants absorbed but the style forgotten" -  probably could also apply to 'boot boys'?:  Can anyone out there identify the shoes being worn here?

 

This is an interesting picture. The Look is early to mid 1970’s,the ‘Smoothie’ period after Suedehead. This is after Mod and pre-revival. The remnants absorbed but the style forgotten. Northern Soul devotees would ride scooters to venues but never call themselves Mods, the same with some former original skinheads. I would like to know!ore about this picture.

The Forum has now evolved into later Skins and present day Mods etc.,I have found this interesting if not confusing sometimes - but then that is me.The last 5 Posts will be it from me.I will still in touch with M-o-M and others( you can reach me by PM,if you want).I am sorry the Meet Ups have now really finished - used to enjoy travelling about and talking to People.Cheers for now.


Who can forget the 2 big James Brown Club Classics "There Was A Time" and "Say It Loud -I`m Black And I`m Proud" both from 1968.I know I and many other Mod/Early Skins danced to them .biggrin.gif

 

Thanks for all your contributions mate!
