John Waters is very kindly sharing this tale of his very eventfull Mod years:
"The wonderful feeling as I tried on my new two piece petrol blue three ply Tonik mohair suit – the particular attention to detail and the hand stitched finish – perfection."
"Of course keeping abreast of the changing styles was a problem. A decent suit would cost around 25 guineas and most young lads would be lucky if they were earning a fiver a week! Almost inevitably the only alternative to young street arabs like us was to turn to more nefarious means to accrue monies."
