Mod fashion and style / Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
« on: November 28, 2020, 03:05:19 PM »
+1 on the hat, though it is simply the icing on an understated but fine looking cake!

Mr Bond makes a good point, the fact that we can't really go anywhere has, for me at least, curtailled massively my 'dressing up'. It's jeans, a polo and a Harrington for a run to the supermarket and that's about the height of it. On the plus side, my bank balance is a little healthier as the general caveat to stuff I fancy is "where the f**k am I going to where it to?". I recognise that that's a little defeatist, this thing will end, but I do currently find it hard to justify buying stuff just to have.

Agreed, it's a really strange time.  Let's hope next year is miles better.

No , you would not get the young Laird in that get up . I think l would dip out too actually. . 8)

To be honest, it doesn't float my boat either, though I can see the attraction for some of a Mod persuasion.
Possibly would look better with a crew neck on it.

Just seen your post Neil, after I responded to Rafa's post.  AGC do something similar, but with hoops, as opposed to stripes.

With the latest round of house arrests kicking in tomorrow , l am now reluctant to buy anymore new gear , wondering when l will ever get a chance to wear it . Still got those lovely Dr Watson shoes l bought earlier in the year never worn outside.
We are on the football thread and l honestly can't see the current political set up here ever allowing a capacity crowd at my local stadium . It is begining to feel like the kind of control that used to be decried by our media when it went  on in other countries , now they positively promote it . . .don't go out ye. . . >:(

I know what you mean but I'm sure that once the vaccines are nearing mass availability (Spring/Summer 21??) then things should be allowed to start returning to something like normality.

We've got Bungling Boris stating yesterday that there might be a return of crowds to football matches in England from December onwards (yeah right!!), yet on the other hand they're still debating whether we can have 10 people round our house over Christmas!! Go figure.

Normally at this point of the week   l would start thinking about Saturday's game , the likely lineup and what tactics etc . Then about meeting up with my Buddies for some banter then on the game and then a quite libations afterwards to dissect the match etc.

However as you will appreciate  , that simply hasn't occurred for months . .

They have taken away our liberty, our human rights and in many   many cases  our livelihoods.  Concrete evidence certainly in your country that the Magna Carta has been violated.
Vaccines?  Why should we be expected to take a vaccine for a disease that cannot kill 99.9% of our population ? Who benefits from us taking a vaccine that will like have a 26% efficacy or less and considering this one is being rushed to market , is it only the big pharmaceutical companies and Bill Gates ( who has effectively bought out our media ) who will benefit by effectively making a killing . ..billions or trillions of dollars or whatever electronic currency they plan to roll out along with the tyranny.  . .

eh? :o

There's also another programme previewing the documentary called Sky a VIP Night with Mick Talbot that some might like.  Interesting comment on their final album being what Weller thought mod should be progressive and always moving forward....well said. 8)

Awaits another Jethro tull video from the retro's.  :D

Like all good artists he's not stuck in the past and always moving forwards.

To quote the man himself 'I’m very careful not to live in the past'.

Watched it the other night, I enjoyed it, thought it could've been longer and delved a little deeper but a worthwhile watch.

Enjoyed the Annie nightingale programme too, Annie said 'that's what's music always been about, you've got to do something that sweeps away the past'.

Radio 1 DJ since 1970 and still has a great passion for New music.

I agree with GS... ;)

Never really liked button down with ties....I always thought BD with tie was an American thing but it's probably common all over the world now.

Mod fashion and style / Re: The "Broken Suit" an informal poll
« on: October 22, 2020, 04:16:33 PM »
I disagree Dr G that the jacket has to be lighter than the trousers. What about repurposing a navy suit jacket with mid/light grey strides? This is a habit commonly advocated in generic menswear advice circles for those who are travelling light and want to wear a suit to the business meeting and have a second outfit for the informal get together without having to pack a load of gear.

I got a tobacco linen suit from Suitsupply which was a ‘blazersuit’ with patched lower pockets and I had it in mind to break it up with the addition of a pair of cream linen strides. I think I did this a couple of times then came across a wool-cotton jacket in ‘nutmeg’ from J Crew at a deep discount so I no longer have a need to break up the suit as I have the same result from separates. Again, in each case strides much lighter than jacket!

Agreed, it's all about the contrast.  I think the lighter the jacket the more difficult it is to pull the look off but can look great if done right, If I mix and match I usually have a darker jacket and lighter trousers.

Tsk, tsk, condescension is a funny thing; to be entitled to it (if someone really is) you need to be smarter than your victim, but usually it's just the opposite.

Interesting points, Rod. Nowadays, as Matt pointed out, I find the "mod" tag restricting, just like every tag really, but the 60s mod scene has been hugely influential in shaping my aesthetic preferences, and the revival mod scene triggers my nostalgia so I have a soft spot for both. I mean, if someone calls me a mod (or a trad or a retro), well, it's OK by me. Not a dirty work to me, so to speak.

Regarding mod as a forward-looking movement: like many well-sounding, empty statements ("mods were amphetamine and Jean Paul Sartre" comes to mind), there lies a huge paradox behind it: if you sever the ties of the mod scene with the 60s, the term becomes meaningless, "mod" can be everything that's up to date.

No surprise GS has to have a dig maybe I should dig back as he can't help himself and the irony of you accusing of 

Forward moving isn't an empty statement just because it touched a nerve with you and you questioning whether your a mod at all means it very much isn't empty.

Fine if you want to sever ties with it but again this is a mod forum.

Defending the 60's look is like shooting fish in a barrel it's preaching to the converted..

No surprise you take the easy option.  Yawn!!!!!

Maybe it would help your cause to actually post once in a while, music you're listening to, or some thing you would wear.
Instead of just sniping from the side lines about others?
Just a thought.

I couldn't care less what others thought of me, especially from those who aren't even mods.  He can take swipes at me all he likes but I won't just sit back and take it.
