    • I agree with Kai on this one! Love college-style scarves! ;-)

    • Like the scarf, Graham!

  • The devil is in the detail as rest say Liam nice to see someone young trying to be different from the crowd

    • Agreed, Motown, - more to the point, it makes a change from seeing us old chaps in this clobber!! Lol!

    • I know this is what was done from time to time, and was my original intention, but the tailor did them a little wider than I expected so they be a bit too 'dominant' if I did - as Chris says the slits weren't often quite as wide. Thanks a lot guys

    • Still looks very smart indeed Liam and as others have stated its great to see a young Mod with an eye for detail. Its those small details that to me differentiated between the clued up and the herd.
    • Cheers I may well do. Considering price of tailor-made suits these days compared to their availability back in the day, I prefer to to alter an off the shelf suit. I may get several other features done in time.

    • Sadly they were even really expensive back in the day. (Well my day anyway) The first pair of trousers i got made cost me £35 back in 1982. My YOP wage was £21 per week so when you took away digs money they cost me more than three weeks money.
    • What I mean is that nowadays a tailored suit is a real luxury item, and that off-the-shelf is how you get them, but back then if you went to buy a suit you would have it made up.

    • £21.50 actually Mr C ah the good old days
