The Last Resort (Scoots, Suits & Boots)

3297245332?profile=original I was thinking today about how times have changed in retail since I bought my first harrington and docs as a 15 year old back in 1978.

About Me:

Having been a Mod since leaving school in '79, I have never veered far away fom the path. I've always loved the clothes and the music, and the general ethos. In recent years it has become even more of a "way of life" as I established Scoots Suits and Boots as an online clothing and footwear retailer. About eighteen months ago, we added "bricks and mortar" by opening a shop in Oldham. I didn't stop there though........... more recently we added Black Sofa Records (a vinyl record shop) within the same building. The next steps are to add a photographic studio and a graphic design studio. When I'm not busy in the shop (not very often !) I like to have nights out at various soul, mod nights and gigs. In fact, I organise my own nghts as well. I recently established Black Sofa Soul Club at Jacksons Pit ( a cellar bar) in Oldham.

Top 5 tunes at the moment:

That would just make my head hurt.

Vespa, Lambretta or other?

Neither at the moment. Most recent scooter PX200, but I'm a Lammy man.
