Mod fashion and style / Mod things I've never worn
« on: April 30, 2018, 04:08:10 PM »
I was looking in my wardrobe at my clothes and shoes the other day and I realised that there are some Mod classics I have never owned or worn. Bowling shoes (including the famous Jam shoes), desert boots and Paisley patterned shirts for example.

I wondered what other Mod fashions have passed you by?

Mod fashion and style / Frog mouth pockets on off the peg trousers?
« on: January 23, 2018, 03:49:25 PM »
I'm after some trousers for work (office type work) with frog mouth pockets as I hate the elephant ear look of normal pockets. So far I only know of Farah (but 100% man-made) or Jump the Gun sta prest (sizes don't quite fit me).

Does anyone know of any other supplier?

PS Yes Rod I know you hate them  :)

Mod fashion and style / Day bags
« on: January 13, 2018, 08:43:11 PM »
I like to have a small bag with me when I'm out and about to carry a water bottle, snacks or a light jacket. I've been using a black North Face Electra daypack (12l capacity). It's about to die unfortunately and I'm looking for a replacement which is both functional and looks good.
Any tips?

So I was checking out Burberry (I do this every now and then in eternal hope of finding something worth lusting after) and found this......

Anyone know anything more?

I would like to get some brown levi 501 jeans but I can't find them anywhere except secondhand which I don't want. Does anyone know where I can source these?

Mod fashion and style / Hanging trousers problems
« on: May 15, 2016, 12:46:04 PM »
I've always hung my trousers on clothes hangers. However, this invariably leaves them with a horizontal crease around the knee area and I'm worried that, over time, it might damage them permanently. Does anyone have a better way of storing them or a brand of hanger which is less harsh?

Ah yeah. Now fuelled by cocaine and with some lovely scarves worn by the Italian mobsters.

Mod fashion and style / Hugs and Co boots anyone?
« on: April 26, 2016, 02:45:19 PM »
Does anyone know owt about Hugs and Co? They also have a nice pair of brown boots but I've never heard of them until now. They also seem to do lots of interesting coloured driving shoes and mocassins which I know a few people round here have a liking for.

Mod fashion and style / Sanders Towcester boot
« on: April 26, 2016, 12:24:35 PM »
I'm after a pair of brown leather Chelsea boots with a rubber/ dainite sole for general mucking about. Does anyone know anything about Sanders Towcester boots? I'd like to know if the leather is polishable or if its one that needs oiling.
