60s Savile Row with The Move
The Move in Savile Row (1967)
Some of our favourite ingredients blend nicely in the video clip below: Italy, Savile Row, mod culture, freakbeat and swinging 60s London.
I am not sure about the final result of those suits though. If they were aiming for a mod-style suit, any purist would suggest they should have narrow lapels. Still, an enjoyable performance of Disturbance by The Move.
As can be seen from the street footage at the start, London — and anywhere else for that matter — was only swinging in certain places. Simon Shop, the Savile Row tailors shown in the clip, was happy to swing a little it seems; as are we at Tweed Towers.
