Cosh Boys in Notting Hill, London in 1954 wearing finger-tip length jackets of a style which immediately preceded Teddy Boy style. Note the chain attached to the belt loop, which was a direct influence from the Zoot Suit. Following on from the Spivs and during the early 1950's some teenage gangs started to appear in the East End of London and they became known as Cosh Boys.
During the 1950's teenagers became their own demographic. A new look emerged among teenage men called the Greaser look. They wore leather jackets, cuffed jeans, motorcycle boots, and lots of pomade in their hair. The look was not mainstream and existed among a group of teens on the fringes of society.
