A new spanish brand I hadn't heard of before. Little to do with mod really, but some nice jackets, shirts, trousers and especially knits with a retro vibe (BTW, their swimshorts are also interesting):

A few nice hings but the sizin' is fur midgets.

Films / TV / Re: Seen any good films recently?

No really mod related - although ah remember chunks ay ma 60s & 70s childhood spent watchin' Laurel & Hardy films oan telly (as well as seein' a few at the cinema).  Also huv tae confess tae a family interest cos ma granddad wis related tae Jimmy Finlayson who wis yin ay thir co-stars.

Anyway, ah finally caught Stan & Ollie yesterday n' it is well worth a watch.  Tremendous actin' n' a very touchin' portrayal ay the relationship between the pair.

Blimey mate  you look great for that age! Take any remark about you being young or 'a lad' as the hugest of compliments fella. I guess seeing you at a graduation adds to the sense of youthfulness too so please take no offence from anything any of the guys said. Most of us here are some way over the 50 mark so even a 40 year old is a 'kid' to us. As noted you look spot on in my book regardless of age. The clobber did the talking.

Aye - almost time tae trade in thoughts ay  Vespas n' Lambrettas n' start tae focus oan mobility scooters fur some ay us.

Currently sufferin' fae a bout ay sciatica n' ah had tae double check that it wisnae rigor mortis.     ;D


By the way - wear yir tie clip any way ye want.

Scoots and scootering / Re: Cleaning Chrome

What you should consider after cleaning the chrome to your satisfaction is protecting it with a wax . Lacquer will give you longer protection but it is a bit of a bugger when it starts to come off. .

A good quality wax that won't burst the bank is Bilt Hambler.  .


N' gie it a final polish wi' an auld St Mirren scarf ye chucked awa' in disgust at half time.

The old Corduroy shoe discussion. I love the fabric and have had a few pairs of shoes over the years. Sadly they don't last too long(As I learnt as a kid living and dying in a pair I particularly loved) Bought a vintage pair some years back but given their 1960s production date they were a problem almost from the first wear. The glue was very dry and sole began to flap away. Re-glued at the menders and they lasted a couple more wears but in the end I gave up on them preferring now to keep them to gaze at occasionally.


An open-toed shoe wid be quite good in this hot weather mate.  Mibbe start wearin' them again?
