As proprietor of Rod's Mod Blog (see link below!) it was always gonna be the sixties for me. I even went down into the garage to pay homage to Sir Maurice:

There are so many great entries, especially the 1960s-inspired ones.

I grew up in that decade, regretting that I wasn't a little older as the Mod styles of the mid-sixties seemed to me the epitome of cool. There was one particular piece of kit that I absolutely loved - the Harrington jacket. My entry pays homage to that exquisite piece of outerwear and the mid to late-sixties.

My entry:

Jacket - Baracuta G9 in 'loden'
Shades - Giorgio Armani
Polo shirt and cotton v neck - Polo RL
Levis 501s
Loafers - AE Kenwood




(My pics from two or three years ago in Venice)

If i had more time i would have tried an original Drugstore look...
But i miss a vintage Renoma suit in my wardrobe, and i don't have for a while some Weston loafers...

This is just a poor excuse for a post since I am frustrated that I cannot participate. Since I live separated from most of my wardrobe I only have clothes that I can wear on a consistent basis. If I would have access to all my clothes I would have been able to pull off a decent early skinhead look from the late 60s or a classic 2-tone 70s rude boy. But it was not meant to be...

Lots of really fantastic entries, gentlemen. I'm feeling way too lazy this evening so I will extend the deadline until sometime tomorrow morning when I feel like getting around to putting up the poll.

@Cruz that's a cool look.


Thank you, sir. So many designers I like were influenced by the 1970s -- I might in particular mention that Ford guy -- that the challenge for me is to not go overboard. Like, I could have worn ivory loafers and/or a shirt with big collar points laid out on top of the coat's lapels. Would have been a bit gilding the lily. I want to celebrate the era, not become a caricature of it, you know?

Edit: Here's a details / textures photo. Voting isn't open yet but I wasn't sure if we were allowed to tack on additional material, so I'm putting it in this separate post for you and anyone else who finds the fit interesting.

ITA. This was a fun challenge. I started to pull out my white polyester suit from High School aka Saturday Night Fever, but to do it right I need to drop 15 pounds. Maybe next year. Lol

Very nice textures. Reminds me of Bill Bixby "Courtship of Eddie's Father"

So nobody dared trying the 80's? If it's not too late, I couldn't find my 6x1, but here's my Miami vice inspiration
