Yeeeeah I kind of don't know what Mod entails, 100%. I try to avoid turn ups with boots because I think that is not a great look for shorter people. Maybe if they were Chelsea boots I would have been closer?
I always think of slim tailoring and quite a buttoned-up look. Think Ben Sherman and Fred Perry for modern takes on it. Or watch the film Quadrophenia.
There's lots really interesting books, films and articles about on Mod culture. Quadraphenia was based very much on the "Scooter boy" style of Mods but there were other styles too, one of which developed into the Skinhead culture. I find it a very interesting part of London history / culture.
Ben Sherman to me would be very much styled in the mode of the Scooter Boy image while Pretty Green has a more diversified range of influences from the 60s onwards.
Thanks Gents for the great information! It's highly appreciated, as always.
Work the other day, monochromatic(ish)
Love the texture on that tie.
Great look Tshirt. Everything is bang on. Love the denim & pea coat mix.
Can't really see the boots properly though which is a pity as they look interesting - any chance of a better pic and some details?!
