During this series of 'Style' blog posts, we will be delving into some photographs of our mod menswear inspirations, beginning with Paul Weller.
As a true music and style icon, Weller has remained one of the most famous mods throughout his time in The Jam, The Style Council, and his solo career. Since the 1970s he has carried a quintessentially British aesthetic, which has placed the mod figurehead at the root of menswear fashion inspiration for many.
Throughout his time as a Skinhead and a Mod, Weller has boasted garments such as Harringtons, turn-up Levis, denim jackets, and pinstripe suits, continually adopting visual identities that were once created by the youth. Explaining that he will “never let his wife dress him” in a GQ interview, Weller proves that growing older doesn’t mean your style needs to grow old with you.
In today's society he believes that men should have a degree of smartness about them, and champions the likes of Miles Kane and Liam Fray for also carrying a level of sartorial style. For many men a mod revival might be on the cards, however it is clear that the 'Mod Father' himself has stayed genuine and true to his roots over the years, and we hope that he will continue to do so for years to come.
Below we have collated some photographs of some of our favourite Weller outfits, beginning in the 1970s, running right up to 2017. Enjoy.
