Shoes Are Not Your Thing? Are Your Sure You're A Mod?
Shoes are such an integral and important part of the Mod wardrobe that some are known by the Mod band that wore them. Yes, I'm refering to you Jam shoes! I don't know of any other subculture that obsesses as much about their footwear. We can maybe make a ca...

The Top 6 Mod Books That Might Be Missing From Your Library
I doubt many of you have never held a copy of Richard Barnes' book Mods . Back in the late 80s, living in Canada, finding a copy wasn't an easy thing to do. Nonetheless, it was the book to have. My good friend Daniel recalls the lengths he went to so he cou...

What is the ultimate Mod car?
