Modshoes Meets Gibson Clothes

Recently Mod Shoes have wanted to bring a few more interesting shots of the shoes to you guys. There are lots of shots of the shoes on their own, which are cool, but we always thought it is hard to imagine size, colour, and what it might look like with another piece of clothing etc.

Page 22 and 23 of the Mods book by Richard Barnes. It doesn’t say what makes etc, just contemporary clothes

In the MODS book by Richard Barnes, there is a double spread that shows some white jeans with desert boots, and what I assume to be a dark brown suede jacket. I have always liked the whole outfit and thought it smart. I am guessing it was done as part of window display

Anyway, we had done a few shots, but then I got talking to Simon at Gibson Clothing, and said do you fancy bringing down some of your new range to combine with the shoes? You can now see what we came up with.

I also wanted to show the shoes in a slightly different light, meaning that I am guilty of wearing my Oxblood Tassel Loafers with jeans and Harrington, and why not? Loafers and Harringtons were made for each other, but surely that is not the only way to wear Tassel Loafers, or Royals for that matter.

The idea being, that hopefully it inspires you guys to give the English company Gibson Clothing a go, and also to inspire perhaps, some different outfits for yourself.
I am really chuffed with the pics, and want to thank Simon for bringing the clothes along. Anyway, enough chat, let’s have some pics!

Loving this first shot, the silver grey ‘Vinnie Style’ coat, waistcoat and matching trousers, look ace with the Oxblood Tassel Loafers. In the picture you can see the jackets and trousers have a thin red check, combined with one of our vintage scarves , to our mind ‘Instant Outfit’

A more country inspired outfit here. This has the distinct feel of vintage, but tough wearing. Notice the cuffs of the jacket match the waistcoat.

Morgate Jacket £199 Waistcoat £65

This lovely overcoat again goes really well with the Loake Royals in oxblood, the trousers also have a faint red detailing around the pocket.

A very casual, going for Sunday lunch (or the pub) look. We combined this with Modshoes gold scarf, to set off the Dark Green jacket. The jacket is made of a heavy material, so is suited to Sunday scooter ride wearing perhaps

Harrington £199 Trousers £65

Above and below you can see the Oxblood Weavers with the Vinnie jacket. The oxblood colour of the shoes lends itself really well to the outfit. As you can see in the close up the red of the shoes matches very well with the Coat, waistcoat and Trousers.
