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…

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…

"I cannot say how the original 1960s Mods viewed the importance of labels but I am fairly sure they would have looked for quality gear that looked the part. They were very lucky in that they were around at a time when all this fantastic looking gear…"

"The Ben Sherman story, as a label is very peculiar. I first visited the 'Ben Sherman' showroom at 3rd floor No.9 Carnaby St back in '66. The building was a scruffy 'commons' brickwork structure with an open concrete stairway leading up from the stre…"

"I'm not sure if when I was younger it was really about labels as we now think of them; it's certainly true that the only polo shirts to wear were FP, but that could be because FP were the only polo shirts available, same with Desert Boots - I think…"

"When it comes to polo shirts, I was willing to try new brands but always return to the good old Fred. Lacoste is ok with me, but I don´t see why I should pay up to 25€ extra for the same quality when swapping the laurel for a crocodile. Same thing w…"

"Yep, I think my comments got lost on this thread. I loved it. Great to hear stories from people that were actually part of the various stages of mod rather than just an author's take on it. It's also nice to have a bit more input from North of the W…"

"Think you have a fair point Kai mod was a youth movement though I would think unless there is another major revival it cannot be classed as that now. As for classing yourself a mod now think you have a fair point for us all but given that it is some…"

Original Mod Voices 
Review by Roger Ames, 1960's Modernist.

Whilst reading Tony Beesley’s comprehensive account of the development and subsequent revivals and later rebirths of the cult of Mod, my interest was reawakened and it has invigorated me to revisit my time as a teenager of fifteen, who, discovering Modernism, was set on the path of enlightenment.
