Come In 2011, Your Time Is Up
From Draper's Record, January 1968.
Last post of this year should be devoted to the dominant subject of this blog so far - 1960's Peacock Revolution - a style in 1960's male fashion that marked a transition between a sharp elegance of Mod and colourful flamboyance of Hippy. So, here are some more photos of key designers, their amazing clothes, and their famous customers - the dandies of 1960's London.
Also I would like to thank all the readers and followers of this blog and wish you a happy new year!
