    awesome. Teddy Boys have a lot of style and listen to good music and are one of the few scenes where the guys really do keep the flame burning for a long time. I've seen some really nice drape coats over the years, a great look with drainpipes and beetle crushers. this is a good ted site, done by a really old school Ted http://www.teddyboycollared.com/ if it's of interest check out this book. It was out of print for years and about 5 years ago came back into publication. The BBC special "British Style Genius" has a volume on teds ...Teds starts around the 3:00 mark as does Vol 1 of Sounds of Underground London, if you can find a copy

    Those pictures are really great and show something we don't often see around here--a truly organic sense of style. Look how none of those guys betray even the slightest hint of anxiety about what they're wearing. Let it rock.

    The style is pretty cool..but what is their fascination with the hand tats?

    Sorry, I should have clarified...the door to the club as the portal to a far gone time and place -- DA's, poodle skirts, and we, my buddies and I, the time travelers...
