How to Dress Like Sting in Quadrophenia

That's Sting as the mod gang leader Ace Face in Quadrophenia, the 1979 film loosely based on the Who's lesser-known rock opera of the same name. The film, about a rivalry between Mods and Rockers, ignited a mod revival in the late '70s/early '80s, bringing back some sharp fashion elements. To dress like a mod, a slim-cut suit with narrow lapels and tapered waist is a must. For the bold mod supremes out there, choose a leather overcoat over the typical parka and dressy loafers over chukkas.
