I was originally recommended this album by someone on the old forum . I can't remember who it was (it might even have been the Boogaloo Tramp) but the album is great . The weekend starts here. .

I'm sure it was Garibaldi.(Italian style etc etc)

Indeed , it leads the poll at the moment .

Typical bloody Mods , we favour anything that is Italian in some way. . :)

I agree with you Claudio - I've read American blogs that have criticised the British take on ivy as being too broad - being about the wider American culture of the 50s and 60s rather than what was worn in elite universities. Then there's the view that the ivy look was rapidly superseded by the beads and flairs of the late sixties - (this tends to be allied with the reactionary politics - badly dressed godless liberals & feminists destroying America etc etc). 

What I like about the ivy look is it's adaptability - it's taken it's influences from everywhere - and it's effectiveness in straddling the gap between informal and formal.

It is a look that changed from the 1920s right up to today & I'm glad it's coming back into fashion.

What bothers me are those who claim to carry the sacred flame of ivy league, and strangle the look in a rigid interpretation of the style .

I'm only really interested in the way 6ts Mod dipped into it and adapted it to some degree. It is a broad church as is Mod , particularly when you see something on someone that you might not have seen before and it just looks  great and very Mod. .

Not certain they suit me, these Herrings remind me of ones Claudio did recently.

Very sleek. .

Lovely coat. Always wanted one. Does anyone make them new now days. They used to be easy to get hold of but I can't recall seeing a new one for sale in years.

Yes Buddie , you can get them new , circa 500. .

i've had my sheepskin for about 7 years now, and i'd wager it had been around at least double that before me, and wouldnt want to go through winter without it! Could do with a steam/clean these days though, think there's still a mark on it from where i dropped my chips on myself at the footy.

for winter nothing comes close. even my vegetarian ex-girlfriend couldnt resist warming her hands in those nice warm lined pockets  8)

It feels lovely and considering that it is second hand , it is very clean and doesn't smell of anything untoward . It needs the button that sits under the collar but I have already ordered said item . .
Aye the pockets feel great. You can buy chips in the football ground you attend ? Lucky geezer. .

I wouldn't like to have to pay for the cleaning, ,

I found this inspirational , for a sheepskin too. .

Aye, I heard a story that Eric Burdon hates Alan Price cos Price somehow got a 'Trad Arr / Alan Price' writing credit on House of the Rising Son and gets a nice check for royalties year on year.

Aye. .
