Sharp Stylings #27: Dave Davies

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, 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.

I don't know about you, but when I think of 'Carnaby Street dandy,' Dave Davies is usually the first person that pops to mind. Could be because of this, this or this

But, earlier on, Dave could be spotted in more Moddish outfits as seen below:
From the Guitarist magazine site: Dave Davies doin' what he does.
Sorry for the black and white photo, but dig on his nice check-patterned jacket. High-gorged, 3-button front, well-shaped thin lapels, and again... great pattern! No wild cravat here... just a simple, thin tie along with a sharp French-cuff shirt with pointed button-down collar.

This type of look has always been a fave... a nice, patterned blazer with tie and shirt. A look that's neat and well put-together without being too formal. And as usual, Davies pulls the look off with no effort. It's almost like he just woke up looking this good. Slick, casual cool.

Here's a little video with Dave Davies in a similar outfit, minus the tie (also a video worth noting for Pete Quaife's absence due to a scooter accident during this time):

Now, let's close this post out with a photo from the ALWAYS excellent Magic Mac photo blog. Ladies, set your phasers to SWOON:
