    Knee length leather coat purchased from Camden Lock Stables Market. I originally intended to pick up a fur coat Id had my eye on- got reigned in by the wife and ended up with this. As Bob the Badger remarked, if your not careful it's possible to look a tad Lockstock and Two Smoking Barrells. It's more Mod like with the collar turned up

    Anyone looking for an excuse to get away, the best place to pick up a leather coat is Florence- theyres a leather market there once a week. Superb quality, and not as lumpy price wise as you might think. Some of the offerings I encountered would have made Sting in Quadrophenia look like Rab C Nesbitt

    This one is quite surprising. I wonder what the second girl from right is holding.

    It's a medium size 40 just above the knee length. It fits so well I can't get rid of it. I might just wear it one day.

    The Guy in the front captures the time of Carnaby Street.Everywhere you looked you had Fellas dressed like that - and even the Shop Window Dummies had the "Look".Well,for half a day that was.....:)

    It looks like one of those combs with the long tail on it.

    Anyone ever notice the skinhead in the yardbirds scene of blow up?

    Check it at 1:22. Bleached denim vest, white ben, and cute Jamaican girl friend.

    Agreed, I don't think that guy is meant to be a skinhead. Looks like something from the high street that cost nothing to make, falls apart after a few wears but sold for a lot to fashion victims!

    Now that you've said that, I see it. I thought the reflections from the lights were bleach stains.

    I thought it may have been a razor to cut the lad's balls off in case he made a wrong move. [​IMG]

    This picture will probably soon end up on the Brieul website (link posted a while ago by Pequod), as they re-post all the pictures coming from this thread.

    I think it's been mentioned on here before, that the woman dancing in the ridiculous red and yellow hooped trousers and silver mac in that scene in Blow Up is Janet Street Porter.
