The Gear Guide, 1967

Gear Guide 1967

Want to know the hippest spots of London's swinging fashion scene? You need a copy of The Gear Guide, dating to 1967, which has been recently republished. 

Written by David Johnson and Roger Dunkley, it was originally intended as a pocket guide to London's shopping scene. The 72 pages of the guide are focused on Carnaby Street and the King's Road, then at the height of their grooviness, and includes write-ups of legendary boutiques such as Granny Takes a Trip, I Was Lord Kitchener's Valet and Foale & Tuffin, as well as many that have long fallen from memory. While the fashions may no longer be available, the Gear Guide still offers a fascinating glimpse into this exciting period of British history. 

The book is available for £4.99 through Amazon.
