Teddy Girl Essence : She is the brave, the daring, the free. On tarmac, in the fields, wherever her feet touch ground she lets the music take her, a rock 'n' roll heart dancing to its own beat. In her 'Teddy Boy' Unisex drape coat jacket she feels every bit a rule breaker and rule maker as the Teddy Girls were, shaking off their weight of conformity, discarding the brokenness of post-war solemnity to claim a kind of liberation that was theirs, and theirs alone. 


She wants freedom, she wants expression, the way those girls, in their brief but vibrant fragment of fashion history, expressed their souls to a delicate world through the clothing they customised and wore. Their long draped coats over rolled-up jeans, flat shoes and slicked back, short hair, redefining any imposed conventions of femininity.  Made from pure new wool, black with deep red velvet trim on the collar, jetted pockets and cuffs and fastening with one red button to the front, wearing this thigh-length jacket she can sing her own song in a contemporary world, she can be Punk and Poet, spirited and bold. A wild, free beauty. When she needs to feel it, when she needs to reignite the spark, she can remember their time, the time when women took to the skies, and when they danced, truly danced, for the first time.

HISTORY:  Teddy Boys & Girls & the Drape Coat


In the UK, the Teddy boys and Teddy girls of the post-war period created what has been called: ‘the first truly independent fashions for young people.’ Teddy Boys were a British subculture typified by working and aspirational young men who took pride in their working class culture. They wore, and adapted, clothes which were partly inspired by the styles worn by the dandies in the Edwardian period, styles which Saville Row tailors had attempted to re-introduce in Britain after World War II. By the mid-1950s, second-hand Edwardian suits were readily available on sale in markets for the Teddy boys to reclaim and rework.

This subculture started in London and rapidly spread across the UK, soon becoming strongly associated with American rock and roll music and film stars of the time. Originally known as Cosh Boys, the name Teddy Boy was coined when a 1953 Daily Express newspaper headline shortened Edwardian to Teddy. In North America, teenage ‘Greasers’ emerged. Again, like the Teddy boys and Teddy Girls, the ‘Greasers’ were defined by their clothes and hairstyles which set them aside. The name ‘Greaser’ came from their greased-back hairstyle, which involved combing their hair back with wax, gel, creams, tonics or pomade.

Teddy boys favoured an exaggerated version of the earlier Edwardian fashion with skinny ties and narrow, tight trousers which were short enough to deliberately show the socks, and brocade waistcoats worn under long jackets with distinctive velvet trim and pocket flaps which came to be called ‘drape coats’.

Despite their overall gentlemanly style of dress (certainly compared to today), the Teddys were a teenage youth culture which shocked their parents’ generation. Previously, teenagers dressed similarly to their parents, but now a rebellious and different youth style, both in the UK and America was being developed.

Before becoming absorbed into the more mainstream homogenized 50s fashion culture, with the very overtly feminised shape and styles, Teddy girls initially wore drape jackets similar in style to Teddy boys ~ rolled-up jeans, and pencil skirts, flat shoes, tailored jackets with velvet collars ~ and they too often had shorter hair and ‘quiffed’ it. They would ride bikes, smoke, go to the cinema in groups and attend dances and concerts with the boys, collect rock’n' roll records and magazines. At odds with their parents who couldn’t understand the pursuit and importance of leisure time, the girls wanted to break free from post war austerity and did so through fashion and music.

Teddy girls were the first British female youth group and they had a distinct and empowered style that was as non-conformist as it was subversive given the demands of society on young women to comply with accepted views on ‘femininity’. There were no 50s style dresses for these Teddy girls, no baby pink colours, or heels they couldn’t walk or dance in.
