  • The Men’s Mod Look – How To Get It Right

    Do mods – those oh-so cool bods that seem to like to recreate the looks and fashions of the Swinging Sixties and slightly before at their finest – belong to the best-dressed sub-culture in British culture? We certainly think so! And, frankly, the evidence’s all there to see.

    Male mod fashion is essentially the perfect fusion of Italian- (and, to a lesser extent, French-) tailoring, the philosophy of the 1940s and ’50s Beat Generation rebels and the precision for detail of the late ’50s teddy bears. And, so terrifically sharp, so irresistibly elegant and so deliciously iconic is it that today’s designers simply can’t get enough of it as inspiration for their creations of the 2010s. In a word, it’s universal.

  • How to achieve the mod look – mixing smart and casual with real style

    Although harking back to days gone by – that is, it’s retro – mod fashions definitely a hugely popular look and inspiration in modern fashion. Identified by all and sundry with the mid-1960s and the likes of the London-based bands The Who and The Small Faces, who pioneered the ‘mod’ culture and way of life, as well as the fashion, its origins actually lie in the desire of that era’s youth to break away from much of the monotone fashion of the 1950s.

  • What Women Wanted: The ins-and-outs of 1960s Fashion

    Of all the decades that can claim to be within ‘living memory’, none are quite so creative, dramatic and downright revolutionary as the 1960s. In terms of music, film, television, society, law and politics, the ’60s were a dectet of years that saw profound challenges to eons-old mores and attitudes (even to a planet that had relatively recently gone through two ‘world wars’). Yet added to that list ought to be fashion – and, especially, women’s fashion. In every conceivable way, how people dressed, how people chose to present themselves to each other and the public at large changed like it never had before in this decade. And here’s a quick rundown of just how it happened…

But, taken together or individually, the clothing and footwear items from this decade weren’t iconic one-offs; far from it.
