You know those ads for Mail Order catalogues you see in the back of old vintage magazines and you always think "I wish I could get one and order the clothes from it now!" well, you still can't order any of the clothes but I do have in my collection a couple of very cool items which I thought I would love to share on here. Below are a selection of pages I have scanned from the Modern Man Catalogues who (probably jumping on the bandwagon) had their offices based in that most swingingest of London places, Carnaby Street. I have two copies, the first I would date to either very late 1966 or early 1967 due to the Kinks-like regency dandy style of some of the items and by the trouser cuts. I hope you enjoy! Stayed tuned for Part 2 - The Psychedelic Hippie, coming tomorrow. Also if you go to the bottom of this post you'll find a link to my Flickr where you will find the rest of the pages.
Yes, those are ivory fur swimming trunks. Hot! In more ways than one I suspect!
Love the spoon collars here.
Awesome Huntsman style jacket - these type of things never come up for sale nowadays.
More lovely tailoring, a fabulous cape and note that the Du Barry frock coat is available in green, scarlet, purple or navy - yum!
You know the man in your life needs a tiger print beach skirt.
