Here at MFM we have admiration and interest invested in classic fashion subcultures; those that have continued to influence our future generations & trends. The Mod look has been around since the late 1950’s and was given a revival in the late 70’s. With brands and designers harking back into the past for inspiration; we have a selection of mod looks today for you to achieve this season.


At this time of the year, there is nothing better than a dependable piece of good quality knitwear. Within Mod style, jumpers and knitted polos were a trademark embraced in a variety of shades and commonly paired with denim.

A relaxed mod look consists of versatile pieces in transitional colours of green, blue and burgundy. Essentially the whole look is kept tight by attention to detail and investment in highly quality basics. And here’s a tip: keep things low key by sticking with a maximum of three colours, brown and navy work particularly well.

The essence of Mod style is all about conquering the sleek quintessential silhouette, created by minimalist shapes and good cuts. This stylised look is easy to achieve with a great selection of work-wear pieces in transitional colours. If you’re wanting to dress smarter; it’s all about a statement jumper. Look out for interesting prints and patterns on plain pullovers.

Further inspiration can be taken from high-spec contemporary cropped suit trousers and slim fitting roll necks; shop something thin so you can add layers this season. A versatile look, knitwear pieces like this can be worn for many different occasions and complimentary even to a standard jean. Style up with contemporary streamlined accessories.

Suited & Booted

Back in the day suit jackets were sharp, collars small, and ties slim. Worn well by the likes of George Harrison, this super smart attire is highly accessible in the present day. With so many brands and designers translating this minimalist style, the options are endless.

The key to wearing a really smart suit well is toning the colours down and selecting something well cut and of good quality. Navy and grey never go out of season; use these as a base to style up. From here you can integrate nice clean cut pieces such as a white shirt – add a tie if you fancy. Make sure you tone this in with the colour of the suit or go for a contrast if that’s what you intend. Primary colours such as red or yellow will tie in well with a low-key full suit.
