Riassunto: The Soul Stylists is about six decades of Modernism and a highly influential world of clothes and music, but one deliberately hidden away for years from the mainstream media. This book explores the enduring relationship that exists between American black music and British working-class style, tracing a Mod tradition that began in Soho just after the Second World War and continues to this day. From Mod to Casual, from Skinhead to Northern Souler, the soul stylists are an amazing family joined together by a tradition of secrecy, exclusivity and absolute indifference towards the outside world. They pass unnoticed because soul stylists always shun the spotlight. To them, attention to detail is far more important than attention seeking. And here in this book, for the very first time, are some of their stories.
About the Author: Paolo Hewitt once wrote two pages on the beauty of 'The Brutus Shirt'. Later in life he published several Modernist books, among them The Sharper Word: A Mod Anthology and Heaven's Promise: A Novel. He is also the author of The Looked After Kid, The Greatest Footballer You Never Saw: The Robin Friday Story and Alan McGee and the Story of Creation Records.
