    Would you say,you dress more Mod than Skinhead Little Queenie?I certainly think so(smarter than a lot of Skinhead Girls,I have seen).

    I think it's a different mentality: the fashions have evolved from different standpoints.

    Well my interest is in the evolution from Mod to Skinhead and, as I think for girls the look was very nascent in '68, they hadn't fully developed their own style so there would have been a Mod influenece in what they wore. Do you agree?

    I have always said that in the early days of "Skinhead",you had more scope to experiment.There are a lot of Styles then,that did not go National-if you know what I mean(Girls and Fellas would try something,to see if they got approval or not).

    many years ago in the mid 60s i can remember the words FAB, GEAR, and HIP , GROOVY. now i was a kid but remember a teen comic or may b a music paper gave a free sheet of IRON ON TRANSFERS, in bright red in that real 60s writing. My mum ironed them onto a white t shirt my question is was that mod lingo,

    Yes, I can't see the really cool using those expressions. Always strike me as a bit 'hipster'..... you're the man in the know on this one, Colin!

    "Swinging London" was coined after it actually happened.To be honest,you just got on doing things-without giving it a thought!By the time that Phrase was made everything had become commercialised.

    That's what makes it so interesting! Being a Northerner, I like what I wear to reflect what was being worn up here at the time.

    The way of the youth cult, sadly..... so often commercialised into crassness.
