I still have some mates that don mohicans etc in there 50s. Ones who can’t stick up bits of hair on the sides of their head because it’s fallen out elsewhere. I just look at them now and think ffs grow up. It didn’t look good at the time. And it’s certainly a damn site worse at there age.
Incidentally I was looking up “mod sites” for music reviews earlier. And I saw yourself in a very smart suit. Mod generation.
Yeah the great thing about the Mod/skin/suede/Ivy look is that not only is it versatile across a multitude of scenarios but also across age groups (with a bit of cautious editing - no Jam shoes for those of us of a certain vintage!). The goth look? Not so much!
And thanks - if that was the pic in the tobacco linen suit I posted it here as well on the ‘Look Goes On’ thread. Plenty more at rodsmodblog.wordpress.com.

Yes I believe it was. And agreed the mod look, jam shoes aside ( I had blue with a white stripe!) or those other jam shoes pointy black with a white apron oh dear!.
Is pretty timeless a nd still looks great today.

Alright, it seems that my memory was playing tricks on me. The Japanese television personality I mentioned is definitely not in his forties yet. He could probably use a smaller size Baracuta too.

Not too shocking methinks, Japanese seem to really like british fashions. There is a story about donkey jackets being popular in japan at some time, the thought of Japanese dressed like bin men/miners still raises an eyebrow.

I think that it's time for a film remake of The Seven Samuria: reboot - The Seven Bin Men.

I would legit watch that, would have to have toshiro mifune in the lead just give him a yorkshire accent(already has the sideburns and grizzled face)

Not the namby pamby bin men like today, but the ones that used to carry metal bins on their backs full off rubbish and ashes from coal fires!! And not leave rubbish on the roads behind them.

I was in Boness in Windermere yesterday and found a shop selling MtM shirts but they wanted £150.
I was wearing my stingy brim hat at the time because it was raining and found that a lot of people said hello to me.🤤

Hi Donkey I agree with you, and neither do I, just thought old fashioned bin men would be better for the film, and modern bin men don't wear Donkey jackets.
I know what amucky job is having worked in a coal mine for 21 years.😎
