Nice top! Did you grab it through Yoox?

I need to get better at spotting stuff on there...!

Anglozine reduce prices for summer - love this top, which is now essentially half price

Also very keen on this jacket (but do I really need another jacket...?)

You're going to call me a killjoy, but tbh I'm not sure about them. On paper I should love them, the kind of Italian knits that float my boat. In fact, when I saw the test drawings I thought they were a beauty. But I'm not sold on the final results: first, those exaggerated collars may look nice and retro but they don't suit me, too big; second, the pockets (and as you know I'm a pockets lover!) seem a misguided afterthought, they add nothing to the garment and look misplaced; and third, the colourways: the navy one is the best looking (for me) but also quite typical of the stuff, while I don't like the orange (too bright), let alone the pink.

The great Modculture pocket debate continues! Claudio does love a big collar - his shirts don't really suit me for that reason - but I'm very tempted by some of his knits. Horses for courses!

Got an email today about relaunched 60s brand Renauld - sun glass manufacturers of the stars (Elvis and a number film icons wore 'em!)

https://renauld.co.uk

One for folks with deep pockets (!) but nice to gaze at

These are nice

Oi Polloi summer sale is on

https://www.oipolloi.com/collections/sale-clothing

Few Mod centric brands in there to browse through - no massive surprises, but some cheaper Beams Plus which is always a bonus

Claudio's new knits looking typically lovely

Obvs there's a fair few button through tops doing the rounds, but those are very nice

Enjoyed it! Decent first issue

The local slant definitely gives it something different, looking forward to reading more.

Ordered it this morning and saw you were in it haha!

Looks great, excited to read it.

Zines really are making a comeback - this month alone there's a new issue of Heavy Soul, Sharpen Up is back, subba culture seems set to produce another issue, and the skin fanzine Spirit of 69 published a book on key skinhead fanzines past and present

Lots to read!

Good shout on the Paul Weller x John Simons knit, looks like a great basic item that you'd keep for years!

They do them in green as well, which I might well pull the trigger on...  8)

Definitely agree with both of those responses!

Really enjoy learning about Mid Century + 60s aesthetics, alongside the more standard Mod fare

I guess it must be hard to be 'Now' focussed during lockdown, with no clubs and no shops open - that said, some amazing new music being released from Kevin Fingier, Colemine Records etc, and online shopping still has great options

Who knows... maybe I'll start my own zine!  ;)
