"The Teddy Boys were a flashily dressed, rebellious and sometimes violent youth movement that originated in Britain in the ’50s. The three-quarter-length Edwardian jacket with velvet collar, drainpipe trousers and quiff became a focus of male fashion which still holds cult status today. The Teds combines image and text to tell their story—a fascinating tale spanning three decades."
