    When did the term "Hard Mod" come into usage ? I think it's a very descriptive term. but I have no recollection of hearing it in the late '60's or the early "70's, was it coined by a writer after the fact ?

    This has been covered before, my recollection is that it was very much after the fact.

    What we have now Ace and Eights,is the"Know-it-all Generation".We do not have to ask People who were there,because we have read it in a Book etc.I see the effects of that all over T.V.This is the same lot who say London was dull before the 80s.Little do they know.

    Very true. Robert Elms in particular used to peddle the accepted media view that the UK was a boring monoculture before the 80s.He contradicts himself in his book, of course.

    Brownie, all anyone has to do if they think London was dull before 1980 is ask someone who moved there from the N W of England in 1968! In many respects, until I got sick of it in 1975, being there was the time of my life!
    :D

    Oh I see, I'm guessing though a polka dot shirt would have made its first appearance around then though as I think this is the first photo I have ever seen of a 60's 'mod' wearing one...funny that a lot of places today sell these as 'mod' shirts!

    If you find my posts uninteresting , then don't read them . .

    Simple. .

    I never realised you were a pedant , before . Worth remembering though , inspector , that a good policeman sticks to the facts instead of mere criticism . . :)

    Belated input on discussions about how aware anyone was of "Ivy League" style back in the late 60s/ early 70s. For my part if any had mentioned Ivy League to me back then, I'd have thought they were referring to the "pop group" of that name from the mid-60s:

    Not that they had anything to do with the look. And I now find from Googling them, that two of them wrote and recorded "Let's Go to San Francisco" as The Flowerpotmen in 1967 - pretty far-removed from this thread's interests ...

    I've been sorting through some of my old books recently and came across this photo in A Pictorial History of Manchester City published in 1998. It shows two lads who'd hitchhiked to Spain for City's European tie in Bilbao in September 1969.

    Another example (on right) of "double denim", with jacket fastened at next to top button, scarf worn muffler-style ... and sunglasses similar to others seen on here quite often. On left you can see denim jacket cuff turned back.

    The lad on the left is the late Rob Gretton, then aged 16. He later managed New Order and owned The Hacienda in Manchester.

    Possibly they wrote it when they'd had a Little Weed! :D
