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.

This is an example of a 1950's 'Teddy Boy'. This is an Edwardian style way of dress for men after the war. The common features of their outfits were drainpipe trousers with a narrow bowtie. This was a way of men who were not well off to look sophisticated and wealthy.
