The 3 buttons is perhaps more of a British thing, but back in the day , Mods wore 1,2,3 and even 4 button jackets . Maybe 3 buttons is what you'll see most of in pictures from the period . Right now, 3 buttons have gained popularity with the mainstream, you can see ready-made 3 button jackets in the shops here . .

Ipswich Town nip down the A12 to Chelmsford in 1973 : https://footballandhistory.wordpress.com/2014/10/26/football-violence-the-1970s-stigma/ .No crops to be seen, but still some narrow leg trousers, denim jackets, Crombies, sheepskins and lots of Airwear.

Mod Pete Heed wearing a two-button suit. He and his mates overlapped the skinhead era, wore many things that could be claimed as 'skinhead', and never thought of themselves as anything but mods.

Yeah. I have images of all the relevant pages. I'm not particularly proud of the venture. Someone once told me I had 'invented the fanzine'. What I think I actually did was fail to invent the fanzine. It was the wrong thing in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I like the cut of that jacket but I'm not so keen on the troos or is it just the pic ? Length wise they look right but they just look a bit "generous" in the width. .

I get the impression Pete is rather short. Maybe that affects how the cut of clothes looks on him.

I noticed that Clapton does the collar buttons up on his Harrington in one photo. I never have and I don't remember seeing that look. I do have one Harrington with buttoned sleeves that I roll back. The jacket looks similar and is without a raglan sleeve. Not a Bara but a Katharine Hamnett, pure cotton, made in England. His could have been an America import.

This is a great pic, though supposedly not from the original era. l'm sure I saw it subtitled as "Cardiff 1980" somewhere. If that is true, then lagging behind London in the fashion department gave these lads distinct sartorial advantage: no skinny jeans, no face tattoos, no bleachers, no union jack t shirts, etc. Just 501s and Ben Sherman's all the way - nice.

 

The third pic from top on Bovvergrrl's page (the guy wearing a dark sheepskin coat) is a Feltham skin in 1980.

I do it cause I saw Colin from WIRE in a photo with his  'bout '78.I've always done it since.

This is why I asked someone else to go thru the pics.I'm obviously not good at spotin' the Originals.I don't want to clutter things up with a bunch of dodgy revival pics(saw a bunch of recent photos made to look old.Tricky Bastards) That site has some great pics.Northern Soul too.
