The Society of Cool!
Brazil is not the right place either =/
One should think so, Clem, but "too much of a good thing..." and all...
My hometown´s just perfect; the only mod among 600.000 people; you can´t get more individual than that :-))
(Certainly just trying to console myself...)
We had good ones when I was a teenager, used to get (or nick ?!) my first three button jackets and Small Faces records there. But then, we were at least 5, up to sometimes 8 mods in Essen (Wow! Millions like us!). Don´t bother looking these days, it´s all hippie stuff now, suede frayed jackets (is that the correct term!?) and stuff. Saw a few guys in Ben Sherman polos recently, so I guess a sale must be on somewhere in the city!
Penguin´s not arrived here yet. Good for me; I get them online and again I´m the only one sporting them here! Fred Perry´s too popular for my taste though, at the moment! And Desert boots.
I only just discovered Penguin last year, so it´s a nice change from the Fred´s.
It is Graeme, just a pain in the ar$e to drive around now with all the council road schemes bringing the City to a stand still!!
