Mod fashion and style / Excess fabric, what to do
« on: October 20, 2020, 01:37:16 AM »
I had some shirts made and got some of the material back as excess and I feel like I should use it for something. I thought about getting pocket squares made, but that seems a little obvious? Not sure how I feel about a shirt with matching pocket square. Any ideas? I thought about masks, but not sure how current that will be going into next year. Any ideas?

I saw these a while back and then completely forgot where....hoping someone can help. I saw these vinyl adapters/inserts that were in the shape of the Trojan records helmet.  Has anyone seen these? Looking to buy a few as a gift for a DJ friend

Looking for some suggestions on swimwear. Like the look of some of Orlebar Browns stuff, just not sure on the price tag...anything out there similar or with somewhat mod aesthetics?

Mod fashion and style / American in London (1956)
« on: May 19, 2019, 08:02:08 PM »
Was given some letters my dad wrote home when he lived in England in the 50's and there were some interesting ones that are very specific on clothes, guess my dad was having trouble finding what he wanted at the time (1956), in writing he mentions "All the shirts here are the old-fashioned type with removable collars", ...and goes on to discuss getting his new topcoat from the tailors. He writes quite a bit to my aunt requesting shirts " 15"x35" and with button down tab collars and french cuffs if possible. I would like to have them in a slight stripe or light pastel or just plain white."  another letter says "On those shirts, they must repeat must have 35" sleeve lengths, 15" neck, french cuffs, button down collars or pin collars (preferrably pin collars) and they can be pastel, white or pinstripe and made of broadcloth or just plain cotton."  He doesn't mention the tailors name, but he mentions getting his "three button suit out from the tailors" and having labels insdie that say tailored especially for ......like father like son I guess :)

Scoots and scootering / Lambretta carb alternatives?
« on: September 12, 2018, 06:10:31 PM »
Helping a friend with his li with 200 engine, and the carb is a jetex,  which seems to be junk. As it's been awhile since I have ordered parts, it looks like the choices aren't as good as they used to be. Any recommendations on a decent carb that can be mounted with little fuss that won't break the bank,?
