Conspiracy theories have it that JFK was secretly a Mod, and I am a truther on this. Apart from being American, young (perpetually) and exceptionally well dressed, the man was straight up out of the Ivy League style playbook.* If he hadn’t been cruelly assassinated in ’63, it seems likely that the whole world would have become Mod by the end of his inevitable sixth term as president. As a historian I can state factually that this trend had clearly already begun and there is no conceivable way it could have been stopped other than the way it was.
I can only assume the reactionary forces of bad fashion could see this too and took the only action open to them at the time. Otherwise the globe might have been rid of bad fashion forever.
Anyway, although Kennedy made it to the highest office in the land, I think his greatest achievement was managing to look cool while doing it.
*I appreciate that Mod is slightly different to the Ivy Look, but you can probably tell this isn’t a serious post by now and I am taking liberties.
