Mod fashion and style / American in London (1956)
« on: May 19, 2019, 08:02:08 PM »
Was given some letters my dad wrote home when he lived in England in the 50's and there were some interesting ones that are very specific on clothes, guess my dad was having trouble finding what he wanted at the time (1956), in writing he mentions "All the shirts here are the old-fashioned type with removable collars", ...and goes on to discuss getting his new topcoat from the tailors. He writes quite a bit to my aunt requesting shirts " 15"x35" and with button down tab collars and french cuffs if possible. I would like to have them in a slight stripe or light pastel or just plain white."  another letter says "On those shirts, they must repeat must have 35" sleeve lengths, 15" neck, french cuffs, button down collars or pin collars (preferrably pin collars) and they can be pastel, white or pinstripe and made of broadcloth or just plain cotton."  He doesn't mention the tailors name, but he mentions getting his "three button suit out from the tailors" and having labels insdie that say tailored especially for ......like father like son I guess :)

OK thanks, looks like we have just 1 night the same in SF. Could meet up for a beer if you like.
That sounds nice! I get in that evening on the 8th, but I'll ping on here to see if you are available.

I liked the response from the Fred Perry Chairman. You can also most hear him thinking "oh for f..ks sake".

Dear Mr Hugo Boss, are you aware that some of your clothing line is popular with......

I live in the US and have a black FP with yellow and royal blue piping, but have had any issues. I think some proud boys get pepe frog or the name"proud boys" embroidered under the laurel leaf as further identification, so that's usually more of a marker than just the shirt. To be honest, the whole thing started as a joke, and will probably die out after a while, so I'm not changing my lifestyle because of some blip on the radar.

Nice, I'll be there the 8th through the 12th. Just a bit of warning, sf has a bit of a homeless problem at the moment, so you might get the inkling to cut your stay a little short, if you  then I would consider driving to san Luis Obispo and staying a night at the madonna inn, it's a nice diversion from la and sf and right on the way.

BTW, if you are going to SF, also bring some wellingtons....the homeless aren't particular as to where they relieve themselves
