Mod fashion and style / Re: I'd Wear That...
« on: January 17, 2019, 02:28:30 PM »
I agree mate re the copy/inspired by thing. I am more than happy to buy something inspired by a '60s flavour or something that makes just a 'nod to Mod' if you like. However I feel that some of the 'inspired' items are just not very well done and simply go the obvious route. That is not for me but of course as you mention is exactly what others may want and more so. I have a small section in the 'Comedy Mod' part of the book and I go as far as to say some of these fellas are really quite nice guys and mean no harm. I do wonder though if these sort of blokes will recognise themselves as such when reading Paul's book. Probably not.


Can't be me, Martin - I doubt anyone thinks I'm a nice guy ;)

They seem to have been considered "hip" enough to be worn by the mod representative on the cover of this esteemed literary masterpiece  ;)



Who's the mod and who's the rocker?  :o

Touche ;)

That is a nice style IF you go "subtle" with the fabric....I could do something like this maybe in a dark wool...

but not burgundy suede... what Rod said ^^^

I have a sports jacket in virtually the same wool pattern ;)

Just finished Smiler's excellent "Pocket Guide to Mod" .. an excellent, well-researched read (as we have come to expect from Paul) and far more interesting and in-depth than the title could lead you to believe on first sight ;)
I even get a mention or two in this one (not that I let that influence me ;) )

Excellent stuff Paddy - Love the Ted Taylor tune -  a brilliant but underrated side (imho) that makes its way into my playbox from time to time :)

No really mod related, but if embdy likes thir crime fiction ah kin recommend "The Way of All Flesh" by Ambrose Parry.

"Ambrose Parry" bein' a pen name fur the joint efforts ay Christopher Brookmyre (author ay "Quite Ugly One Morning" n' aw the other Jack Parlabane novels n' also a St Mirren fan - so he probably shares pedallin' duties wi' Mr Bond ay this parish oan the Buddies supporters tandem travellin' tae away games) wha' has co-authored it wi' his missus (an anaesthetist by trade).

Set in Embra in 1847 when anaesthesia wis in it's experimental stages a young trainee doctor gets tae wonderin' aboot a series ay deaths involvin' young women.

Yin ay the characters always well dressed n' a bit ay a dandy - so there's yir (very tenuous) mod connection.

Ah'll say nae mair than that, but it's a good read.

Thanks for the heads up, Laird ... I just love Brookmyre's work (especially the Angelique de Xavia novels)

The performance art bank robbery sequence to the musical accompaniment of Madness' "One Step Beyond" and SAHB's "Faith Healer" in his "The Sacred Art of Stealing" is one of my favourite pieces of writing (about time someone made it into a film IMHO)
