Some time back Miles was looked upon as a bit of a darling or saviour of the music scene here. Seen him a few times and have his first album.In general he is OK as far as I'm concerned but that's about the extent of my enthusiasm for him. Obviously getting chummy with Mr Weller and talking about bands like The Who or The Beatles gives him a bit of '60s/Mod' credibility in the eyes of some and certainly that looks to be the case with FP I imagine. I don't mind this top at all but isn't something I am personally going to go mad for especially at the sort of price I am sure it is being sold at. It is strange that anyone British and white who doesn't walk around with their trousers half hanging down calling people 'Bruv' or has long hair or face pins is somehow regarded as having some sort of Mod Aesthetic about them. I often see Jake Bugg lumped in with that way of thinking and see nothing 'Mod' about him or his music as good as some of it is. Surprised Ed Sheeran isn't regarded as Mod too!! For want of a better term the most 'Mod' new or young artists I've seen over recent years is the black American singer Leon Bridges or even for his music Raphael Saadiq. Both guys of course go way beyond being judged on the clobber they do or do not now wear.


You've taken that too far wi' the Ed Sheeran reference.......

Naebody hinks gingers ur cool.    ;D

Most Scottish people, then.

Just taken delivery of one of these,very nice fit and quality for the price,fortunately still cold enough to wear it in sunny Scotland.  ;)

There’s loads of Goorins. I’ve been to the one on Royale Street in New Orleans and if you’re going to Vegas there’s one in that little side street that leads from the strip down to the entrance to the giant ‘London Eye’ thingy. A lot of their hats are indeed ‘supposed’ to be crushable but I’d be careful stuffing them in a suitcase for a long haul flight too!

Good to see JJs mentioned on Fifth Ave in New York. I met my mate in NYC in August 2002 to see The Who right after Entwhistle died. Got my first Panama there during that trip and wore it home. They now do them in several colours (‘Bowery’ style) and five more! I love that place!

Any good hat shops in Florida Rod,I'm over in the summer again. Staying near Orlando
