October Typical black suede creepers fashionable during the s Bolo tie featuring Native American design It is sometimes inaccurately written[ citation needed ] that the Teddy Boy style and phenomenon appeared in Britain during the mid s as a rebellious side effect to the introduction of American Rock'n'Roll music. The Teddy Boy predates this and was a uniquely British phenomenon. Wealthy young men, especially Guards officers, adopted the style of the Edwardian era. The original Edwardian revival was far more historically accurate in terms of replicating the original Edwardian era style than the later Teddy Boy style. It featured tapered trousers, long jackets that bear a similarity to post-war American zoot suits and fancy waistcoats. There are differing accounts of where the Teddy Boy style actually started and the ensuing pattern of geographical expansion. Part of the reason that South London is seen as the birthplace of the working class Edwardian style is because the popular press of the day reported the emergence of the style. However, there are many reports of the style being adopted in other parts of the country in the early s with young men wearing tighter than normal trousers, long jackets, 'brothel creeper' shoes and sporting Tony Curtis hairstyles. In , the major newspapers reported on the sweeping trend in men's fashion across all the towns of Britain, towards what was termed the New Edwardian look. However the working class Edwardian style had been on the street since at least , because the style had been created by working class teenagers and not by Saville Row or fashion designers such as Hardy Amies. When shown in Elephant and Castle, south London in , the teenage Teddy boy audience began to riot, tearing up seats and dancing in the cinema's aisles. The most notable were the Notting Hill race riots , in which Teddy Boys were present in large numbers and were implicated in attacks on the West Indian community.

The outfit also included a high-necked loose-collared white shirt known as a Mr. Preferred hairstyles included long, strongly-moulded greased-up hair with a quiff at the front and the side combed back to form a duck's arse at the rear. Another style was the "Boston", in which the hair was greased straight back and cut square across at the nape. Teddy Girls[ edit ] Teddy Girls  wore drape jackets, pencil skirts , hobble skirts , long plaits, rolled-up jeans, flat shoes, tailored jackets with velvet collars, straw boater hats, cameo brooches, espadrilles , coolie hats and long, elegant clutch bags. Later, they adopted the American fashions of toreador pants , voluminous circle skirts , and hair in ponytails. They were young working class women from the poorer districts of London. They would typically leave school at the age of 14 or 15, and work in factories or offices. It was a head-turning, fastidious style from the fashion houses, which had launched haute-couture clothing lines recalling the Edwardian era.
