    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.

    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...
