Ah, who can forget the Ska Revival of the late 70s?
Record labels such as 2 Tone, Stiff Records and Go Feet provided us with some amazing music from band's such as The Specials, Madness, The Selecter and the The Beat - remember Mirror In The Bathroom?
2 Tone music was influenced by ska and Jamaican Reggae and fans were known as Rude Boys and Rude Girls. Men's clothes were a combination of mod, skinhead and gangster fashions, with highly polished shoes or boots, fitted drainpipe/straight leg trousers (or jeans) which were cut short to show off their dazzling white socks, button down shirts, braces, skinny ties, Harrington jackets, overcoats, pork pie or trilby hats and wayfarer or wraparound shades. Footwear included loafers, brogues and Dr. Marten boots.
Ladies wore tight short skirts and tights (plain or checqured) with white socks and monkey boots, Doc Marten boots or winkle pickers.
