The Society of Cool!
This kind of shows that you have to find out that you're a mod. You can't really just become one
See numerous threads and articles on here including the "10 commandments of mod."
But you're right they probably would not get it.
Why the need to explain?
ive been a mod or associated with modism for 34 years and still cant explain fully what is a mod or what mod is:- as pete meadon said. its clean living under difficult circumstances...i ususaly just say if i have to explain youle never understand.
No need to explain this well used quote sums it up....Its a Mod thing, you wouldn't understand!
If you wanna try and explain I would say a dedicated passion for sixties fashion/style, music and for some-scooters, also for some influences from the 79 Mod Revival.
Or...the late 80's onwards.
Its like soul , its not just a word its a feeling
