Mod style questions


So em.. hello from Russia! emoticon
I'm quite new to mod stuff and that's why i'd love some assistance with clothing and mod style in general. So here's my question: how do you wear a parka? I'm quite curious about that one because i've seen plenty of pictures of mods wearing parkas and it looks like parkas were oversized or something. So, mods, if i ever buy i parka(that'll happen soonish i guess) - should it be oversized? emoticon

Parkas are designed to be loose fitting so if you get one in your size it will still have a baggy look.

There seems to be a decent mod scene in Moscow:

I also saw a facebook page some time ago, so you should be able to meet up with some locals who can help you.

You should also check out a Moscow band called The Riots if you haven't yet done so.

Re: Mod style questions


I've got a few questions, thought I'd just ask in this thread rather than starting a new one. I tend to wear things the way I like them, but I'm just looking for others' opinions.

- M-65 parka; do posters think it looks better with or without the hood?

- See the Warrior Clothing Harrington jackets, I'm looking to get a black one and a navy one. Just want to make sure they look the part, because I've heard the material looks different to that on, say, a Baracuta one. Should I go ahead and get them? Also, what are there desert boots like quality wise?

- Jump The gun M-51; does anyone have one? Is it a good reproduction, good quality etc?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Mod style questions


Hi folks,

Bit of a strange one here, just asking out of curiosity. I always wear my polos with all the buttons closed. Sometimes I get asked why (or get called 'gay'), I just say it's cos I think it looks better. Is there any specific reason mods do this (same thing for shirts)? As I said, bit of a strange one, I know!
