Mod fashion and style / The "Broken Suit" an informal poll
« on: October 22, 2020, 12:05:51 AM »
So, I'm sure you've heard about the concept of a "Broken Suit" (mixing/matching suit jackets with another suit's trousers, and vice versa).
 I know it's "trendy", and I know there are 100 ways this could go really wrong. but I have a situation where I'll pick up a DB suit, but the slim cut tapered trousers just look all wrong with a DB jacket IMO.
So, is it really a "No-No", to wear the jacket as a blazer, with another pair of trousers?

General music chat / Long Hot Summers/Story of the Style Council
« on: October 07, 2020, 10:56:11 AM »
Pre Order for 3 LP collection. Looks like not much new material, alternate versions of a couple of tunes.
And looks like they skipped anything from the last "banned" House record altogether, nice packaging... also Limited Edition color vinyl sold out before I got the email >:( apparently..

So I'm thumbing through the new Esquire, and Louis Vuitton is launching a line of "Mod inspired" clothing:

Not sure about this, let's just say it's "unique" interpretation :

Mod fashion and style / Pleated Trousers-I'm not ready for this
« on: July 12, 2020, 02:23:16 PM »
Notice a lot of the high end Euro clothing brands are showing more pleated trousers again.
Even a place like Suit Supply is offering them (along with those ridiculous "draw string" trousers)
Thought we just got rid of those?
Ugh.
Don't tell me I'll be having trouble finding off the rack flat front trousers, soon...  :o

New Book by photographer Ethan Russell:
https://shop.ethanrussell.com/
Mostly focused on the Beatles and Stones form '68-'72, but also included is the photo work he did for "Who's Next" and the "Quadrophenia" cover art and book included in the album. Not a cheap book but very well done...

Mod fashion and style / Shetland Knitwear
« on: June 04, 2020, 10:54:21 PM »
Seems I'm always looking for quality Shetland crewnecks. Last one I bought was from Anderson and Sheppard, looking for another color which they may or may not get back in (although won't need it for another 4 months)  Anyone have any suggestions?
