Tailor Made Mod Suit

I'm off to Thailand this month and I thought it would be a great excuse to get a few things tailor made for my 'mod' outlook. I've never really been able to afford a tailor made suit and if I did I'd have no real idea as what to ask for to get a…

A Mods Mod

As much as I like the swinging 60's look on a girl, this straight hard look has always been my kinda girl. What's your favourite look, 60's swing, straight butch or as they say both ways? And girls please feel free to join in on your look for the…

Amazing B sides

Over the past few years I have started to collect some fantastic vinyl 45s again. Some have been bought from car boot sales for next to nothing and others I have paid a few quid for, although to be honest I have not paid more than £12 yet. I already…

What I bought today...

Just thought that I'd start this topic as nobody has [bothered?] to start it yet! I was in one of my local charity shops today and bought these women's basket-weave, tassel loafers for only $8.50 AUD! Absolutely brill, to say the least! ;-) Now I…

Books

I thought it would be worthwhile to start a new discussion on books. To narrow it down a bit, I suggest we stick to the more or less mod- related books; I wouldn´t want to bother you with each and every novel I´ve read. Among the ones I´ve read…

"It's a matter of opinion Chris, and also what era or phase of the mod movement you are into. For me, the "classic" mod suit would be a mohair/Worsted (most mods couldn't afford pure mohair) tonic or subtle two-tone cloth. Style-wise, three-piece (co…"

"Fillet of Northern Sole, chips, wally, slice, cuppa, treacle tart and custard 2/6. Two bob if you want a kiss from Greasy Betty. Stroll on. I think I probably need to apologise now, it's just that 18yo Londoner in me coming out. Sorry, Betty."

    A SUBURBAN MOD'S FORGOTTEN STORY Part 3

     

    LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL

    Pete Townshend  may have been good at putting Mod feelings into words (the first couple of years anyway), but his group were never big favourites of my generation (pardon the pun).  When it came to British bands, for us it was always Georgie Fame & The Blue Flames, Zoot Money & The Big Roll Band or Chris Farlowe & The Thunderbirds that we would go out of our way to see.…
