    Just thought a thread to swap mod fashion ideas would be cool... Should have put this in the fashion section really.... Too late now though.

    Any mods? What do you wear on a typical night out? Parka? 2 tone suit? 3 button suit? Fred Perry shirts?

    Got a vespa?

    What music do you listen to?

    Not expecting a massive response, but there must be some out there??

    To stop any possible confusion, I mean mods as in fighting on beaches against rockers... Not TSR moderators.

    Just clocked that

    Erm this is a really irritating reply seeing as how I'm not one sorry :o: But this thread has potential to get seriously interesting, just wanted to say cool idea. Could always give us a guide to your music and wardrobe if no one else is a mod and replies?

    I haven't got a typical mod taste in music, I'm more of a skin head in that respect (ska, reggae, old school hip hop, punk, rock, jazz, funk, soul). But some examples of how I dress - -

    I've got a jacket like this (but longer) - http://www.atomretro.com/product_inf...RCOAT-MOD-COAT

    I wear trainers like these - http://www.atomretro.com/product_inf...D-DESERT-BOOTS

    Shirts like this - http://www.atomretro.com/product_inf...Y-COLLAR-SHIRT

    And some smart, straight trousers.

    I have my hair sort off like gavin from gavin & stacey - http://www.london-attractions.info/l...-in-london.htm

    Except mine is longer & slightly higher in the middle.

    Just looking for recommendations of music & fashion from anyone with similar tastes!

    Also, just thought I'd say - my dad was an original mod in the 70's, he had a vespa with all the mirrors, flag on the back, two tone suit, parka, etc, listened to the who.

    Now he sees the way I dress & he gets all choked up haha. Kinda hoping he's gonna buy me a vespa!

    Ahh I love those links! You must look really smart, London is definitely the place for perving on people's outfits. Haha that sounds really nice about your dad.

    Have you ever tried looking for specialised clubnights? I'm sure I've been handed a few leaflets in Soho that use the mod symbol.

    edit: Apparently mods like Northern soul? Are there any songs/artists you'd recommend? I only know a couple of songs via listening to originals that Soft Cell later covered, and I'd like to know more.

    edit again: it's a real pity no one else here is, especially considering the number of page views...

    Maybe you could clear something up for me. Are 'the mods' affiliated with the RAF??

    Ha that's clever. I was actually talking about the red, white and blue target logo the raf and mods seem to share. lol
