Books and other printed media / Mojo - January
« on: Today at 08:40:28 PM »
The latest Mojo has the Jam on the front and covers the " rebirth of Mod" , which of course has never really went away since. .

For some on here it will cover that period of time when one became captivated by the emerging Mod scene and for that reason it is worth a buy . Some good pictures in it too . .

James Stewart in “Vertigo”, Gene Hackman in “The French Connection” (the hat alone wins it a spot for me), Richard Roundtree in “Shaft”, just about every Sean Connery outfit in “Goldfinger” (exempting of course the infamous blue towelling playsuit), Michael Caine’s wardrobe in “The Italian Job” and am I missing something or has no one mentioned “The Avengers” TV series? Or is it too obvious?

Personally though it’s not particularly “Mod” I was always fascinated by 1930s and 1940s black and white moves where everyone seemed to wear a suit and tie, smart overcoat and a hat on a daily basis.

I wouldn't say the Avengers was too obvious , it was worth watching just for the clothes and Mrs Peel of course. .

When I went on holiday in September to Chile, my connecting flight from New York was rerouted to Bogota so, having ten hours to while away, I had a pleasant afternoon and evening in NYC.  The Uniqlo store on Broadway is worth a look, but that's probably on your list?

Cheers, Ady!. Yes, I thought about Uniqlo, but as they've just opened a store in Barcelona (and their shipping fees to Spain are neglibible), I don't plan to visit their NY store unless I need to try on an specific item. Thanks anyway, amigo  :). And keep 'em comin', guys.

Have a great time when you over there , amigo . Don't forget to send me a caird. . :)


Dont spend all your dinero over there , remember their shoe artisans are not as good as the Spanish. .
