I think they look quite mod in the boots & trousers department.

From the same Jini Dellaccio photo shoot:

The zippered Burberry-ish duffle is interesting, pea coat, and car coat...

Mod longshoremen? Or a 60's equivalent of an Urban Woodsman?
Yeah, it's an odd look. I also checked out pictures of other American frat rock (pre-garage) bands. I suppose I was curious if I'd find anything Ivy-ish that wasn't obviously mod-influenced. Alas, most groups from that era wore 'band uniforms' for photo shoots - i.e. silly matching suits in bright red or whatever.

So I guess Beach Boys is the closest we get to a non-mod 'Ivy' look in the world of 60s pop bands.

I remember listening to Brian Wilson state that when he first saw the Beatles in their mohair suits and looked at publicity photos of themselves the beach boys looked like bus boys.

Just received an invitation to "the closing event of Golddream, an exhibition celebrating Goldsmiths campus life in the late 1960s and early 1970s."

As I was there 68-70, and that's where the "famous" picture of me on the college steps was taken, I'm thinking of going.

The invitation says "Period dress encouraged." Heh heh heh!
