Mod fashion and style / Re: Whats the last item you bought?

This addition to my knits collection, made in Italy by my go-to brand Doppiaa, has been cheaper than the last batch of DNAs is and to me is more satisfying in several departments, from the colourway (a mostly subjective issue, of course) and fabric (cotton, so easier to care for) to the smaller (but still keeping the curved points' detail) collar. It shares with Claudio's the slim/boxy fit and the short length:





cheer up it's summer. ;D

Why would you care?  If you like it that all that matters.

Streaming capable, the price will shock but you can't deny the beauty of it:

That's smart, your walls could do with a lick of paint though.

Films / TV / Re: Seen any good films recently?

Not sure if it's been mentioned already but there's a short programme on mods and rockers filmed in 1964 on the bbc iplayer (and if you search for it on your TV).

Bring that man a pipe and rocking chair!!😄😄 That made me chuckle (don’t forget the slippers!)
Actually it’s a decent version there Syd, looks better on the close up pic which pops the colours better. You know I like the red and blue combo.

I don’t own any cardigans and there is often a Perry Como / Val Doonigan connotation - especially if they’re in cream / beige / brown tones, but some of them look OK. I’m still open to getting a polo collared cardigan if and when I find the right one. I was in for a FP version last year but they buggered up my order and by the time I reordered they were out of stock so we’ll see what they come up with when their winter gear is released.

When the revival was dying out in the early eighties there were a bunch of lads round ours that we called “sunshine boys” or “softies”. They were into jangly guitar music like the Smiths, Lotus Eaters, some of the Glasgow scene* bands, Orange Juice, Housemartins, Aztec Camera etc. Their uniform seemed to be doc Martin shoes, baggy faded jeans, white polos and beige cardigans with leather football buttons. I think a few ex Mods crossed over into that scene.  They were harmless and there was never any friction with them but maybe that cemented my dislike of the grandad cardigan.

As for the Glasgow scene, there were loads of bands coming out of there for a while and even some of those who never made it were still decent. Simple Monds were problies the most famous. The Waterboys were poised for world domination before Mike Scott moved to Ireland to be a wandering folk troubadour! I got to see (and meet) Love and Money loads of times and they were severely under-rated. I also remember Simon Bates playing ‘Slide’ by The Big Dish touting them as the next big thing but they went nowhere ... except playing in our student Union at Leeds Carnegie where they went through their whole set and got ‘encored’ so many times they ran out of songs and played ‘Slide’ three times! Sad that they didn’t ‘make it’ either.

I don’t write about music much as it’s so subjective and divisive but that period in the mid eighties was a brilliant era for creativity and eclectic tastes.

The Big Dish I remember them, i remember buying 25 years, still like that tune.

It's not that surprising given how expensive new vinyl records are.
