Brilliant pic of the Small Faces , Kenney looks super sharp. .@Thin White Duke, just read your blog on monkey jackets, where you state in a paragraph that 60s mods didn't wear denim/trucker jackets.
"I don’t recall seeing any evidence of sixties Mods wearing denim jackets. They may have been worn during the revival but there’s a closer association with Skins, Boot Boys, bikers, scooter boys and heavy metal fans (heavily embroidered). Windcheaters / windbreakers, Harringtons and monkey jackets are a step higher in formality than denim trucker jackets and just look a bit more sharp and polished which suits the Mod aesthetic. Worn with either a polo or Breton shirt, jeans or sta pressts, and desert boots or classic trainers they add a layer against the weather that could work through three seasons in the British climate."
This isn't the case as there are plenty of photos of 60s Mods wearing them, including well known faces.

Have you checked out the Small Faces 60s TV show Colour Me Pop where they play a lot of the Ogdens LP semi live, with Stanley Unwin doing the links. Incidentally one of my fave LPs, it has everything, must have got the album multiple times on different reissues, out takes and everything, but I treasure my copy of the original vinyl, and the CD which came in a tin with beer mats inside.Brilliant pic of the Small Faces , Kenney looks super sharp. .
In this film you can see Mclaggan sporting the barrnet mentioned earlier
