The Who

During the 60s Great Britain gave the world sensational music acts such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Who, just to mention a couple of them. Their conquest on the US Billboard charts during those years is refered as "The British Invasion".

The Who one of the most iconic groups from this period, just like their musical peers, became one of the representatives of men's fashion in the 60s. Below we can see its members donning Mod hairstyles paired with "avant garde" clothes for those years. Peter Townsend's "Union Jack" jacket gets all of the attention on this photo.

This fashion will be forever associated with this era, and certainly in the music world, the jackets were wild and unique!

I know! Those jackets were awesome, wish it would be possible to find some of them nowadays. It is amazing with the resources available back then how there was this kind of creative boom in all fields during the 60s; like a "Modern Renaissance".
