Live It: Mojo - Dress like the lads

Date posted: 5 May 2014Author: STC Production: Mojo

As a late 1950s period piece, Jez Butterworth's Mojo kicks some major sartorial goals. It was a time when American rock culture and traditional English Savile Row suits came together on the streets of London.

 

To get the look just right, Sydney Theatre Company's costume department will be realising David Fleischer's designs from scratch. But not everyone has a team of bespoke tailors working for them, so David has curated a ready-to-wear collection from online retailers, so that you too can strut and swagger your way through a nightclub like Silver Johnny and the boys.
