I love how dark and moody this image is as I feel it really portrays the Teddy Boy look, I may take this into consideration for my portrait. I also like the idea of the cigarette as I feel it adds a very rebellious feel, paired together with the slick back hair and the Teddy Boy suit.

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 Spiv's 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.
