I can get down on this film a lot, but I reached down to find something positive to say and found one really good outfit in the movie:
It's like Jimmy had an off-day here as he actually looks pretty cool. Striped blazer, grey tab-collar shirt, beautiful horizontally-striped tie (my favorite detail in this ensemble), dark pants, and loafers (not desert boots, for once)! I like this outfit so much that despite how nice his scooter looks, I really wish it wasn't in the way so that we could dig what he's wearing in more detail.
In all honesty, this scene and outfit looks so different from anything worn in the rest of the film! If this was the type of look that was concentrated on in the film, instead of the 'lumpen' Mod look, I wonder how that would affected some post-Quadrophenia Mods.
See, even Steph's happy he left the parka and desert boots at home. Sting who?
Okay, after all this Quadrophenia talk, I promise to lay off the subject for the next few weeks or so.
