Back to the Beat Concert
It is 1982 and you're just back from barber's freshly suedeheaded. The Beat are playing at the Victoria Hall this evening. You have a ticket and you want to look your best. Strangely, your wardrobe comes from the future — 2015 to be precise — but it is all timeless so no one will notice.
The central feature is the Yardie Cardie (top) in baby goatskin suede (made in Italy) from Connection Knitwear. Around which you spend far too much time selecting the rest of the outfit whilst listening to the best from the Two Tone record label. If these clothes are anything to go by, 2015 is going to be just fine. You wonder if The Beat will still be playing then. One thing you know, you will certainly never tire of listening to Save it for Later [Amazon].
