    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Speaking of suits...Guy on the right is modelling the one middle button done up to perfection...

    [​IMG]

    These are apparently early 'mods' but the guy on the left has a double breasted number that looks a bit uncharacteristic of the period (?):

    The guys in the photos have trousers that look a bit contemporary . .


    If I had been them, I'd have been having a word with my tailor . .[​IMG]

    The drawings are very mainstream.. .


    ETA: the model in the dark suit that is holding a mobile in his right hand(lol) , looks like a young Roger Moore around the time when he made The Saint. .

    They are indeed. Sign of the times...
    They come from a magazine that was used by tailors to propose some fashionable sewing patterns/designs to their clients.

    Nice. .


    I have racked my mind but I don't think I ever saw a regular guy i.e. not a member of a youth culture , wearing a Tonik suit .I would suspect they did exist at some point I just never saw one. .

    Forgive me for this - you probably do know already - but many people assume that Dormeuil Tonik mohair was always two-tone or multi-tone, when in fact it could be single tone. I suspect that many, many gents with a bit of dosh went to their tailors and had suits made up in Dormeuil Tonik, and we wouldn't have known.

    Of course THE most famous Tonik suit in the world is this:

    [​IMG]

    In the immortal words of Rocket Racoon, "Oh, yeeeeaaaaah!"

    I suspect that many of John Steed's 'Pierre Cardin' outfits (from The Avengers In Colour) were in Tonik, though I have no way of verifying this.

    [​IMG]

    The whole 'shiny suit' thing we got originally from the likes of Otis Redding...

    [​IMG]

    I'm wondering who made the suits for Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin...

    [​IMG]

    And while I'm talking, Solo's incarnation by Henry Cavill had some seriously tasty threads! AND he does up the top two buttons.

    [​IMG]

    And anyway... what were we talking about? Oh yeah, Tonik. Dunno, mate.

    I have read the Impressions were a huge influence on mods in terms of their style inc their suits too ('Mod Gods' they have been called)

    I watched the Italian Job recently and had forgotten how good the clothes were on that . It was made during the skinhead era . .

    Camp Freddy wears a nice number that even has covered buttons. .

    a great Mod caper. .of course , back in the day Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin were pretty much must watch telly. It didn't seem so tongue-in-cheek back then. .

    Of course , I loved the Avengers too, in particular the Diana Rigg series'. .

    We mustn't forget Harry Palmer . .

    1964. A drugstore gang member and his bike in front of the first Champs Elysées Drugstore (before it burned and was re-built). Strange cap. Except from that a classical original 'minet' look. Long hairs, Aviators, Trucker, short Shetland pull over, etc. 'Minets' loved fast cars and fast motorcycles. Some liked scooters too.

    Is that what they used to call a 'mini-pull'?

    Yep, or a 'mini-shetland'. Already short on this picture, but later exaggerated to the point that you could see the belly button (girls and boys !).

    I can remember seeing one of the shortened ones. The guy was wearing it over coloured shirt, though, I'm glad to say.

    Ils sont fous, ces français! :D
