Mod fashion and style / Re: The What Are You Wearing Thread
« on: July 16, 2021, 07:24:46 PM »
Thanks guys, very kind!

The shirt is indeed John Simons, a long sleeve button-down madras - love that shop, always very nice people

The jacket came from A Dandy In Aspic, the long-running vintage shop in Camden. Have always visited, and never picked anything up - typical vintage, the sizing would forever be slightly off! Found that jacket during lockdown and fell for it straight away - originally Italian, I had the sleeves taken out slightly but otherwise a perfect fit.

Oh, and if any forumees are in London in the next few months the Night Owl looks great - great food, and events every night of the week!

Will see if this works, not posted a picture before...!

UPDATE: It did work!

Bass weejuns, Adam Of London strides, vintage jacket, and John Simons shirt.

The Night Owl is a new soul themed pub in North London, I was DJing alongside the excellent PM Warson (whose album is well worth checking out - very Georgie Fame / Nick Waterhouse)

Gents, after our (unfair) demise before Italy, my heart is with you, aupa England!!!!!

I'm sure the Danes would take the opposite view!  ;)

It's a one off, can definitely see England snatching it

But who knows?!

Jump The Gun vs DNA Groove / Far Afield vs Capirari

It's impossible to pick!  ;D

Two clarifications, Robin: I think the AWs were looking for a saxophone (doubling french horn, mind) player!  ;D. And I'd say the Action were more of a soul band than a r&b one.

Good point RE Artwoods

For a long time I thought Richard Kent Style must be American because they had such a different sound to other UK bands of the time. It must have been something in the water in Manchester!!

Yeah really super band, very Mod!

Would add:

Graham Bond - Wade In The Water
Zoot Money - Big Time Operator
Artwoods - Looking For A Trombone Player
John Mayal - Crawling Up A Hill

And no one's mentioned The Action!  8)

Love all of the above!

Would add:

The Animals - Big Boss Man
The Birds - No Good Without You Baby
Clayton Squares - Imagination
Richard Kent Style - Go Go Children
Alex Harvey - I Just Want To Make Love To You
Chris Farlowe - The Fool
Duffy Power - If I Get Lucky Someday

Wicked sounds, often under-rated on the current scene imo

So:

Is it coming home, folks...?

Southgate's got his (boring but) effective system, and the strikers are coming on form at the right time...

Is it time...?

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...?)
