Mod fashion and style / Re: Art Gallery Clothing

When some mentions art gallery and clothing in the same sentence I always think

Which movie is it, LM? I recognize of course George Sanders on the right

The Rebel starring Tony Hancock. Suburban bank clerk jacks in his job to move to Paris and become an artist. Classic early 60s Brit comedy - I think you’d like it.

EDIT: saw the question was for Lord Mulberry, hope you don’t mind me jumping in.. :D
Saw it when in the movies when l was at secondary school.  I have certainly laughed at Hancock more than l did watching that one . Best for glimpses of the times .

 Yes, Italian by name but not neccessarily by nationality , l recently ordered a Gabicci knit from Stuart's of London pricipally becaue they were less expensive than Mod Shoes , Atom Retro etc which , is something l never expected . I have never purchased fro Stuart's before so let's see how it turns out.

Monday 3rd May 2:00am - The Party's Over - 1965. Drama. Directed by Guy Hamilton. A controversial film of its time. A young American girl is caught up in the wild London scene. Starring Oliver Reed.

And then on Sunday 9th May at midnight, another chance to see 'The Boys', a film discussed earlier in this very thread.
Guy Hamilton had his name removed from the credits due to the harsh censorship.  I suspect he name has reappeared but l think the censorship may still be in , let's face it, censorship is in , in, in most places these days.

Actually, this type of jacket, one of the contributions of Spanish tailoring to the sartorial world:

Well, that's pretty hideous, color is pretty awful,and it looks 100% polyester. Frankly I don't see even a faint resemblance to the Cifonelli piece I posted (let alone a "safari" jacket), but that's me, I guess.
It's easy to forget, but I try to remember what Sly said all those years ago: "Different strokes, for different folks"...  ;)

Just replying to Simon, Mike, on the subject of what a Spanish "teba" was, nothing to do with any Safari jacket or the Cifonelli jacket you posted.

I find it interesting what they call that colour , l really do . The name it got the other day l could not pronounce. Strange.  .

. .anyway how is Javier getting on. . 8)

I'm waiting to see what else Art Gallery release in their Spring/Summer range before deciding on new s/s tops. I do like this top though and might give it a try regardless of what else takes my fancy from them.

I like a lot their stuff but usually they are out of my size or l don't like it enough to buy it ( like the Kinks , l like a lot of their stuff but l never bought an actual kinks album). In fact l bought this one on the spur of the moment and wanted the free sticker, mostly.  .
