This photograph is of "Teddy Boys," which was known as the UK's first subcultural style after the war. These boys donned Edwardian inspired dress, consisting of drainpipe trousers, a narrow bowtie, and shoes with thick soles. They also had Brilliantined hair, shaped into a DA( or duck's ass). The Teddy Boy was a very obvious, known look during the decade.

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.
