Teddy Boys.Teddy Boy is a British subculture typified by young men wearing clothes that were partly inspired by the styles worn by dandies in the Edwardian period, styles which Savile Row tailors had attempted to re-introduce in Britain after World War II.
The Teddy Boys created the first truly independent fashions for young people. they were working class British adolescents that adopted styles from menswear: longer jackets, cuffed sleeves, waistcoats. well-cut narrow trousers, and high turned back lapels.
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.
