Sharp Stylings #2

We can learn so much from yesterday’s fashion icons.  And living in a post-Mad Men world means we can even enjoy aspects of current male fashions! Every Friday (except for the tardiness of this post due to travel yesterday), I’d like to start your weekend off right with a little style inspiration from either then or now. Hopefully, my fellow Mod enthusiasts will find the whole or some detail of the whole to appreciate and maybe even adopt.

This week, let these kids start the school session off right:

Okay, you know you have a problem when you're letting kids this age out-suss you.

See the guy on the far left... he is straight darin' you to find something in your closet that comes close to his level of cool. Good luck, my friend, and hope you're up to the challenge.

The kid to his immediate left along with the kid second from the right... well, geometry must be teaching them something, because the angle of those hats are perfect!

And that last kid on the far right... he's my favorite. Something about him tells me he's about to pull some pigtails later in the day.

Are any of these kids Mods? No, of course not... but they're slicker than most. Now let them school you the way I've been schooled.


  1. Even more amazing is the fact that this photo is from the 1980s!

  2. Seriously... I did a double-take when I read the caption! Their Sunday Worst probably beats my Friday Best!
