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.
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.
