I hang with a few cliques in Sheffield and the lack of good neat clothing is shockingly bad. Don't get me wrong they are great people but I'd say from a total of around 40 people only about 6 of them wear a suit let alone own one and I find this truly a sad state of affairs. So my question to you folks is how many people in your circle wear a suit?
It seems to me that most people consider themselves being a mod because they wear a Fred Perry polo with the top button done up. Since the FP appears to be in fashion at the moment, it could mean that people are trying to pass themselves off as mod but have little understanding of the culture and would probably be a punk or somethinig the next week; to them it's just a fancy dress party which they do at the weekend. I'm sorry if I come across a bit brash or snotty, but it's how I feel about things? Any of you people relate to this?
