In 65 66 The Beatles had some fantastic shirts. We think Paul used to have his tailored made especially. This particular jumped out to us, as being super 60s, but with a nice nod to Mod as well.
The contrasting collar and cuff are just fab.
The shirts have been developed exclusively for 66 Clothing, with particular attention to some very important details. The main priority of course, was the High Collar, which we needed to have a really good roll on the collar when worn. We feel that there are just too many collars which don’t have that class/smart look, so this had to be just right.
The collar length and the position of the button was very important, we wanted it to be an integral part of the design not just an ornament, which we have seen on some modern designs. When worn the collar hugs the neck, and doesn’t fall to one side, so it makes the wearer look neat and tidy.
The button down is a classic shirt, and has been since the Mod Jazz / IVY days of the 50s. Worn with a suit or Sports Jacket, it’s style had that certain refinement that set it apart from conventional collars. Each decade since then has seen the Button
Down change to suit the times. Of course the Mod Style, that became the skinhead and suedehead, has some great colour combinations and a tradition that we wanted to pay tribute to, but with our individual touch.
So yes you can wear these shirts casually at the weekend, perhaps to a soul, mod or ska do, but they also look good under a jacket, eg. harrington.
The fabrics we choose to work with Jeans and many of our shoes & Boots, but of course they can be worn with a host of other style choices.
The shirts here are exclusive to Modshoes and are not available anywhere else
