WHEN THE TEDDY BOYS RULED

chelmsford teds 1974-1cut

As long as we’re on the subject of men’s vintage fashion, we might as well bring up our all-time favorite male look: The British Teddy Boy. Inspired by Edwardian fashion and fueled by rock n’ roll, the Teds were the coolest. Their hair was strictly greaser, and there was more than a pinch of rockabilly – long jackets with velvet collars, embroidered vests, stovepipe pants, and creepers. They even had their own dance called “The Creep.” They all idolized the American singer Gene “Be-Bop-A-Lula “ Vincent. Be still my heart….

    Instead of showing off men’s hairdos, why aren’t you showing us more 1950’s and 60’s tits? I want to see how tits have evolved from back then to now.

    Angelo probably has pictures of plenty of 50s and 60s men for you to look at.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
