NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #299 ~ 02-12-22]

Pictured: The Fleur De Lys.

Of course, neither snobbery nor misogyny ended because typists and duchesses were buying the same dresses in Quant’s King’s Road boutique, or because men began to wear pink shirts and use moisturiser. But sociologists in the 1970s argued that ‘subcultures’ operated under the surface of mainstream society, challenging prejudice through rituals of dress and behaviour. Although criticised since for ascribing too much political intent to style, their analysis of Mod as a cheeky parody of middle-class smartness has yet to be bettered. As Dick Hebdige wrote: ‘The Mods invented a style which enabled them to negotiate between school, work and leisure, and which concealed as much as it stated … the Mods undermined the conventional meaning of “collar, suit and tie”, pushing neatness to the point of absurdity … they were a little too smart, somewhat too alert, thanks to amphetamines.’

— Richard Weight, Mod: A Very British Style.
