Mods in the Wild


We’ve never been sure how many mods there still are roaming the streets of London, but Dean Chalkley seems to have found a few.

These well-dressed young lads are part of an exhibition currently running at London’s Book Club dubbed “The New Faces”—the title came from his pal Paul Weller, of course—and seems to have been done with minimal styling. Which is to say, they walk around the street like this.

To be honest, we didn’t think there was anyone this sharp outside of Paul Smith’s showroom, but we’re happy to be wrong.
