Mod fashion and style / Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
« Last post by detroitmike on Today at 04:54:55 PM »
Hi fella's been a while. Been really unwell with a Covid type illness for about 4 months. The face fungus came about from a challenge between a few mates during lock-down..6 of us kicked off in April all clean shaven and baby-faced. There's now just two of us left and neither wants to quit now..My good lady hated it from the outset but quite likes it now  ;)

Having not had the opportunity to leave the house (well for 10 weeks that was physically impossible) I've kind of had a bit of a style change re-boot. Much more laid back & casual, in fact I haven't put a tie on in 9 months now and no longer own a single suit :-[

I'll see if I can post up a little more as and when I can but this is one from about a month ago when my hair was at its longest..managed to go 7 months without a trim  ;D

Wow, 4 months. Well take care Steve, glad to see you back here. Have you been checked for the anti bodies yet? Covid can be really nasty even if you don't end up in hospital..

Sharhabil Ahmed - The King of Sudanese Jazz. Flagged up to me by the always reliable Monkey Picks (formerly of this parrish), it was completely new to me, but I've now played it 3 times since yesterday. This is the opening track:

Check the album out, you won't be disappointed.  8)

Good stuff, Nick! Kind of arabic music meets garage rock; well, not exactly that but lively, vibrant music with obvious Western influences and an unmistakably Mid-Eastern tinge.Apparently Mulatu Astakte is a deep influence of Sharhabil and it shows.

I'm not familiar with Mulatu Astakte, one for the always expanding list, Rafa!

Nick - this is a good one to start with for Astakte

Listening now, Ady, good stuff. Cheers!

As you know,  l have the former album but l can see that there is a bit of crossover on the track listing and indeed both albums have the track which l consider his best track and actually soothing for the soul. .

Which is....?

Yeah , l particularly  like that colour but like yourself l have too many dress shoes although,  l don't have a pair of Jam shoes yet ;D
That's where I drew the line... although I do have an older pair of those black/white cap toe "Jazz" shoes Weller used to sport... ::)

Do you mean these ones , Buddie. .


Yep...Mine are Allen Edmonds


I'd call them correspondents , always liked them ever since l saw them being worn when l was a kid , a smart shoe with a bit of flair . Never got around to burying a pair . .
I actually special ordered those from Allen Edmund.
The difference is the "corespondents" style don't have a "cap" toe:

A "jazz shoe":
