    The new one of this is out, anybody read it? I always think it is a bit funny with Trojan records as a lot of folk might wear Trojan t shirts etc but weren't they notorious for ripping off artists and also re-mastering and overdubbing string arrangements over the original Jamaican recordings?

    I can't see how desert boots could last 3 or 4 years as the soles wear out pretty quick:

    The Trick is Buy a Few Pairs and Rotate.Never wear the same pair 2 days in a row.

    same goes with underpants. Im told Ace Face mods changed underpants multiple times a day. Once a week with the Rockets probably.

    Non sequitur as to the current conversation though relevant to the forum: Does anybody know why that fellow stopped writing that slow-going but good reading "For the Suits" suedehead blog?

    are american classic muscle cars from the late 60's and early 70's common in england? I've heard some 80's bands mention them from time to time but I'm not sure if it was from a personal perspective or just a story type narrative.

    On another note I ran into this compilation awhile back I shall call it the music of your rivals haha although all the songs pre-date the mod era, I still think it's worth a listen for fans of early rock'n'roll.

    I actually like Rock `n` Roll(probably from hearing my Sister`s old 78s) and Rockabilly - especially Songs involving Cars.

    We lived in the States for a while in the 60s- we returned in 1970- my dad brought back a 66 Chevvy Impala. At one time we managed to squeeze in an entire Under 11s football team thanks to the front bench seat. He sold it in a dilapidated state to a fella who intended to do it up and stick it on the Chelsea cruise.
    In answer to the question, Yankee cars particularly Mustangs and Corvettes were popular for a while. Later on I think they were viewed as slightly naff- the drivers often donned cap sleeve T- Shirts and sucked lollipops

    I know this cover is revered by the Ivy fans for the shirt/colour but I think his boots are worth a mention.They look to be Sander Playboy Chukkas in the less frequently seen leather.

    It's a great compilation to check out then if you don't already know all the songs.

    I've always assumed Miles had on a pair of Weejuns. Kind of surprised to see the desert boots.

    They also have some compilations with a lot of stuff talked about earlier in the thread Mambo, R&B, Bossa Nova, Calypso, I think they would be of great interest with many posters here, they even have a french compilation.

    Just interesting to see you can wear a button down, braces etc. and still look pure "Americana"... Our US friends might be able to date this historical period that is clearly the inspiration here a bit more accurately than me...

    Not sure what era or style the fellow is going for, though "septuagenarian hipster" might be accurate. It looks sort of like a mix of Victorian and Old West, maybe "steampunk"-inspired?
