Yet it still looks good in a way that so many other fashion trends simply don't. Take a new romantic fringe or a hippy smock - would you really go out dressed in that now? What of the glam rock phase? What of the punk mohawk?
If I look at the modern wardrobe now it seems to be, purely by accident, a theft of some of the most memorable elements of Mod - parkas, button down collars and of course the tailored suit. I don’t see creepers or beads in there so much any more.
And the world is the better-looking for it.
