The open coat (with waistcoat) looks like a 19th century sack coat. Looks good.

 

I didn't know mods still existed.

Each phenomenon which is taken up should be treated with as much thoroughness as possible at that standpoint... One thing at a time and that done well!

This is really bad! Neck, sleeves, shoulders...
The grey SB three-button is way off - looks terrible! No wonder it's affordable!

-There might be a lot of tweed merchants out there making a bodger, but I'm sure not one of them. I'd rather be kicking my heels than making a pork on the mangle. No crushed beetles to be found here!

The SB one with covered buttons? Yes, shocking upper sleeve,

It is all bad! even the tailor's own jacket is off - and what's up with all those covered buttons?

I agree with Chi Town Tailor. Not only the grey one. The DB looks like a strait jacket, most of the sleeves are bad and the proportions of the jacket are off in my eyes. The small and high buttoned revers with the covered buttons - not to my taste.

Well, it is meant to be mod style, mid-to-late 1960s. So covered buttons, high-buttoning double breatsteds and the like are of the style. The dodgy fits, that's another matter.

"Mod" was more of an early 1960s thing - the word got co-opted and was used more generally (i.e. the US TV show "the Mod Squad") a little later.  This stuff is more like the late 1970s/early 1980s "mod revival" look.  That style of suit in the first three pictures - usually in "tonic" two-tone polyester, and bought off the peg from Mister Byrite or the Carnaby Street shops that used to advertise in the back of the NME - was the uniform.  In that respect, the fit and construction on display here is authentic. :angel:

You're right, my dad was already doing the mod thing by 1963, I think the some people who were originally teddies adopted the mod look too. Though the height of mod culture as a social phenomenon is the mid-sixties.
