Mod to Suedehead - Page 1503

post #22531 of 24884

Hi SL, how are you doin' mate ? We missed you at the last meet up.

 

Speaking of ski jumpers... Well they are for... ski ain't they ? At least here. I remember my older brother and sister wore some in the 60s-70s.

 

Update. I had a talk about ski jumpers with my sister (she was rather surprised !). She remember them very well. My brother and her had them around 1962-1964, and kept them for years. They were possibly made in Switzerland, but she thinks it's a Nordic pattern/origin.

Well beards are trendy for the masses as they attempt to achieve some sort of beached-sea-mariner  look. .

 

Never been into beards , personally apart from the ones that Manfred sported back in the 6ts . He always managed to look cool. .

We've had this video before, but if you look at 1:00 you'll see the bloke after to two blokes in shirts/braces has a bomber jacket without piping. This is not unlike the ones I knew 'up north' in 67/68, though that one looks like it might be lined.

Here's another pic we've had before*



Mods & Rockers. What really cracks me up is the 'audience'. I'm wondering whether this might be one of the photos 'staged' by a journo.




*Don't panic - I'm actually coming across this stuff as I'm transcribing stuff for 'the book'. Yes, really!

Yeah, Manfred went in for the 'Amish-minimalist' look. biggrin.gif

Some time back there was some discussion about how the gangster look was briefly popular in the wake of movies like 1967's Bonnie and Clyde.  Here's some video of the look and it includes the only known surviving footage of 'The Artwood's' albeit dressed as the short lived 'The Saint Valentines Massacre' - they were a R and B band big in the mod clubs featuring Ronnie Wood's brother Art.  If you look carefully you can also see Long John Baldry and members of the Troggs.  Perhaps some mods who didn't want to go hippy but were not so proto skin inclined either got into that look?

It looks either like a blemish on the photo, or a bit of his barnet.

Ah yes , a great wee filum , SV. How times have changed when you consider how everyone seems to be smoking inside and those mock guns handed out ! You would most likely , literally , be shot if you walked about with guns like that now in central London . .
