    dang this guy has a satisfying voice

  4. Sue Castillo on May 26, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    The question was: were you a mod or a rocker…

  5. NegraNomada on May 26, 2021 at 8:18 pm

    This man’s voice does not make me excited to watch this video. Watching this vid as research for a design project. Not any help. I didn’t learn anything. Terrible narrator.

  6. ma dici a me? on May 26, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    The Beatles in 1967 = fashion icons

  7. Silent Groyper on May 26, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    Hey isn’t the same voice that does the Amen Break doc?

  8. Florencia Tr on May 26, 2021 at 8:20 pm

  9. Heather Holidays on May 26, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    The 80s brought back the MODS big time!! Which morphed into a cross of new age and punk aka Goth 😎🤣

  10. Alli White on May 26, 2021 at 8:26 pm

    This channel is so educating yet fascinating. Thank you! Find of the day 😄

    The zoot suit started to be worn in the1930s. It wasn’t Edwardian.

  12. Alida PC on May 26, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    When I was very young I remember watching a TV program called The Mod Squad.

  13. AndieOnline on May 26, 2021 at 8:27 pm

    The og side burns 😔

  14. Deedee 60 on May 26, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    Brilliant clips!

  15. Keona Kalu on May 26, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    the absolute incorrect voice for the narration

  16. A Viewer on May 26, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    What a fun video! Thank you!

  17. spontina on May 26, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    The broad at 1:24 has a schnozz always huge as Streisand.

  18. Maki on May 26, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    Fifty years from now, they’re going to make the 90s seem so magical!

  19. why not on May 26, 2021 at 8:35 pm

  20. Ellie Milianti on May 26, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    Teddy Boys were 1950 greasers. Peglegged pants. DA haircuts.

  22. Ellie Milianti on May 26, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    Mod didn’t happen til AFTER Twiggy made it happen. That american model? Never heard of her. We were all about the British Invasion. Jean Shrimpton was already an established model.

  23. Retro Connection on May 26, 2021 at 8:39 pm

    Now kids dip their Hair and ass in hair dye and think their revolutionary

  27. Kathleen Clark on May 26, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    In “A Hard Day’s Night”, an interviewer asks Ringo if he is a Mod or a Rocker to which he replies, “I’m a Mocker””. Epic.

  28. Liusila on May 26, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    So hipsters.

  29. Ramona on May 26, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    The mini skirt was created by Andre Courreges not Mary Quaint as the narrator claimed.

    I was on a bus on Haight Street in San Francisco one afternoon. Suddenly all traffic stopped and we heard a buzzing noise that got louder by the second. Everyone looked mystified. Then in less than half a minute a swarm of Vespas appeared. At least 50 of them. Riding them were young adults in Mod clothes, waving to everyone. People on the bus went nuts. (This is something that will probably NEVER happen anywhere else.)

  31. Aimee Thomson on May 26, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    Mod mum and all…

  32. First man on the moon on May 26, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    So they were 50s hipsters

  33. kirstine majlund on May 26, 2021 at 9:01 pm

    😍😍 really Great video

  34. Ronin JoLin on May 26, 2021 at 9:03 pm

    Im Salvadoran American and I didn’t know what the fuck a Mod was… I’m here because I was listening to The Exploited

  35. Lauryn Ashleigh on May 26, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    thanks for making this video!

  36. MaGuffintop on May 26, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    The 80’s the last of mod fashion. Died in ‘92 with Grunge & fashion has yet to return. Been wearing yoga pants & T for oh 15 yrs…

  37. Lesley Hawes on May 26, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    These are mostly young and American commentators; I’m British, 77 and I was there; OK I wasn’t rich but I did wear Mod clothes, but also the leather look, which these people so deride, and also I was a flower child and a ‘hippy’, all of that in a period of 10 years. Most people I knew did the same, we wore what was ‘in’ that particular season, and although some people would like to remember it so, it was not a universal movement!

  38. SassyBratt1 on May 26, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    The mod look is pretentious and stuck up.

    Hi. M2M – Made To Measure. My Parents was around 1960’s, my Parents saw 1960’s fashion, music, when I was born I listen to this music, I find out from my Uncle, he said that’s what Mod listen too, I like way they dress, music too, so when it comes 1980’s I started getting into Mod fashion, my Uncle saw me again, he said to me you are doing a Mod look, I was wear Tassel Loafers, slim fit Mod Blazer Suite, skinny tie, Blue Beat Mod hat my Uncle that I am wearing, so after I buy my first fishtail green Parka, Dr. Martens, Clarks Desert boots, Harrington Jackets, Fred Perry Polo, more Mod clothing, after I came a Mod, that was around in 1980’s, right now I am still a Mod, I still listen what Mods listen, early British bands like The Who, Small Faces, The Kinks, The Action, The Creations, The Yardbirds lot more Mod bands I listen too, Northern Soul, Rhythm & Blues, Mod Jazz, SKA. In England there is Ben Sherman, Merc clothing, Sherry’s London, Faces clothing on Carnaby Street,
    , John Simons The Ivy Shop, in Brighton, UK Jump The Gun, Bone Clothing Quadrophenia Alley, these are Mod clothing’s shops, I London, UK to Ben Sherman, Lambrella clothing shop, Merc clothing, Sherry’s London, The Modfather Clothing Company, that’s only Mods shop I went too, next time I will go these Mod shops, I will go Mod shops when I come back to England someday. I am from Toronto Canada, Mod fashion started in Ontario Canada in 1979, some people here don’t what is a Mod, because they were not born yet, Mod fashion stop in 1994, I am bring Mod fashion again, I was a youth when I got into Mod fashion, in England Mod fashion is very big right now. I like your video a lot.
