1950's British Teddy Boys, post war working class teenage boy gangs (Teddy Girls were the counter part).  Appears to be somewhat of the British version of the American Zoot Suiters.

The 'Teddy Boy' was identified as the UK's first subcultural style after the war during the 50s. Their dress was Edwardian style inspired. They were seen in drainpipe trousers with a narrow bowtie and shoes with thick soles or winkle pickers.
