Wait what, don't you have to be over 70 to wear beige?   :-X

Judging by the pictures posted on here most of them are.
 :D ;D

If your are in the market for a stone coloured Harrington style jacket this may be it , from Next . The cotton is better quality here than Baracuta and Ben Sherman with a slimmer cut too(no baggy sleeves) but the deal breaker may be the lack of plaid linning(it is a floral linning) . The good news is no superfluous logo on the chest this time which they have deployed on their previous Harrington designs. .they are @55

               

Quite nice especially if you can get a sizable discount from next..... like me. :D

Not entirely sure why exactly but this does piss me off.
Why does it seem the world and his wife HAVE to dress in baseball caps and hoodies ( almost always grey) even in fine weather?  And pretty much N##e too.

Grey or black.  There's a bloke lives near me that I've never...and I mean never seen him wearing anything else other than a black hoody and black joggers, even in the summer when its red hot....don't get it, but I'm older I don't think we're supposed to 'get it' lol.

The irony of them being called joggers, most of the people I see wearing  them clearly have never jogged in their lives. :D

Ha ha, I completely get what you're saying.  I just don't understand it at all with all this sportswear.  And yeah, how many have actually jogged anywhere?

My guess is, they don't have to bother to think what they're putting on. My gripe is with the tores who stock nothing but trainers and "street wear".
 I used to get annoyed more by the sloppy dress of the masses, now I just think makes us all look that much better ;)

In our eyes anyway ;D, I remember discussing this with someone who stated they preferred the look of the jogger type outfit, it takes all sorts i guess.

I'd like to hear the reasoning behind that, just out of curiosity...When I worked in an office and the dress code was "relaxed' it went to all Khaki chinos and very well worn polos (faded from washings, and even some of the chinos were frayed at the hem) the other odd thing I noticed was guys with a full head of hair "mowing" it off into a buzz cut. When I asked someone why they did that, they replied "I don't have to comb it when I get up" same thing with putting on the chinos. It was "no maintenance" dressing.

Yeah I don't really remember the discussion as it was a few years ago now, I do remember them stating that some of the jogger outfits were like pieces of art (and yes they seem to really mean it).

I think the 'no maintenance' is definitely something most adhere too, and who can blame them?  They simply don't care about clothes.

Bruce Springsteen, back in the 70s or 80s, I haven't followed what he's doing these days so no idea about that. Not so much what he wore as the way he wore it, the kind of - probably very planned - slightly disheveled way he would wear something, the way he could put on a jacket and not seem selfconscious.

Fantastic artist, still making great albums today.
I'll check it out on Spotify.

His last 2 albums were class, one with and one without the e street band.

Was looking at various backgrounds and stuff and found some nice things and was wondering - since I suppose most of us, unless you really don't need one or are a very strict 60s purist, have a phone, would one be able to instantly identify you as a mod by for example looking at your screensaveror listening to your ringtone? How have your customised your phone to be more modernist?
I discovered some of the standard Samsung designs are some vague graphics that could be seen as anything including retro so stuck to them ;D.

RM, my twopence for what is worth: as mobile phones are so alien to my aesthetic and fave historic period, I find it pointless to customize them (target phone cover?!?!  :(). That said, I always use a cool ring tone, currently Gene Ludwig's "Soul Mountain"  8)
Cool ringtone amigo !! I currently have Can't Be Still By Booker T . It used to make me smile at a Modweekender when you would be in the bar before the music kicked off and you would hear buddies phones going off to various good tunes. .

Fashions change, it's great, imagine if it always stayed the same. :D

Yes fashion does change, and not always for the better, but style always remains constant.  I'd much rather remain stylish (IMHO), and be labelled 'retro', 'stuck in the 60s', etc, than be 'fashionable' and look a t**t  ;)

But that's the point just because you might not like it doesn't mean its worse, just like people on have stated 'certain mistakes' people make, well who says they're mistakes?  Them?  But they aren't any authority so it's irrelevant.

As for style remaining constant well thats ambiguous and certainly open to debate.

Why would "certain mistakes" re: what people are wearing be a "whose to say" notion , but "style" is  "open to debate"?
They're both open to one's opinions, aren't they?

Exactly they are, that's what I said.  But there are statements on here like they are stating facts.
