Which is Britain’s best dressed subculture?

Chavs and new ravers… the 21st century hasn’t exactly produced the best subcultures, has it? This is especially upsetting when you look at the sharp suits of sixties mods and the revolutionary DIY aesthetic introduced by punks.

Just look around today and you’ll see everyone with notable style was inspired by some 20th century subculture, from Alex Turner’s sharp teddy boy persona to Liam Gallagher’s mod swagger, bar from grime (come on guys, we’re counting on you) there really hasn’t been a decent group of people that have shaken the nation and made front page news.

So we’re nostalgically looking back to the past and analysing history’s best dressed, hoping that someone out there finds a way to stop the rise of branded joggers and hoodies as acceptable forms of making an effort.
