    Its the trendy thing to be "fitted". Its because the type of clothes that us lot are into, are "on trend", so the cut and fit is being designed for a "younger" market. Its all balls of course, and most people just go up a size.

    There was an article in last week's Telegraph about Crombie ("The coat of choice for the KGB, skinheads, City bankers and bookies") http://fashion.telegraph.co.uk/news-features/TMG9988101/Mencyclopaedia-Crombie.html . Says that Crombie didn't start making coats themselves until 1985. Before then, they manufactured the cloth so a "genuine" Crombie in those days would be Crombie cloth made up by your own tailor - but the name got applied to similar coats I suppose.

    From memory, I bought my Crombie (with the Crombie label inside) off the peg from Dunn & Co in Romford. The shop was next door to Alexandra's where I bought a made-to-measure Prince of Wales jacket. The coat was very similar to the present day Retro coat with
    Red Lining
    Fly Fronted
    Above Knee length (just about)
    2 Horizontal side pockets (no ticket pocket)
    Top pocket
    The Lapels/collar as the Retro but no Velvet collar.
    Mine wasn't as shaped (darted) as the Retro.
    I remember I actually preferred some of the Crombie copies which were cheaper but had a better shaped lapel. The coat was 'christened' at East Ham station when my mate threw up on my back after a 'heavy' night drinking at the Black Boy, Stepney Green.

    What a lot of hot air. Looks like he's been paid to write an article about something he knew little about or even had an opinion on, but wrote it anyway.
    Good picture though.

    I've just read it too and agree with D.S.I Buttons. It's funny, I cringe when I see 'modern' Weller-type Mods with that bloody barnet but at least they mean well. (But so did Hitler as Spike Milligan once said :D)


    Just found this, an assortment of '67 Mod styles -

    I agree that there's a lot of bollox in that artical but I think it highlights the distorted perception of people 'looking in'. I hated all that Britpop tripe, bunch of scruffy beggers. But its those middle class indie kids who assume I'm racist if I'm wearing boots and dressed smart, but I'm the one listening to black music.

    corker23.Unfortunate stuation.I walked away from the Mod revival/retro idea by 81 when Indie rock began.It's one thing to incorperate some Mod styles as a nod to your origins but a complete retro attitude is sad to me.I remember in the 80's there were alot of 60's garage bands with all the bells and whistles also a little silly.If new so called Mod bands are influenced by The Who,Small Faces,The Action,and Creation then you've missed the point.Oasis was Pathetic.I was shocked when I first saw them in a Mag and thought "Mod revival Again?! The numerous Ska revivals over the years have been even worse.Shall I stop now?

    Just a thought but, like it or not, it is still 'black music' that continues to develop modernist new music, whilst acknowledging and referencing its origins. while the majority of white boy music seems to simply ape previous genres into a repackaged pastiche.
