HOW TO WEAR YOUR SCARF IN THE 70'S

Around 1972, teenagers came up with alternative ways to wear a scarf.
The above examples were 2 of the most popular variants that earned you a bit of street cred at the time.
This wasn't only for football matches, it was a full fashion fad.
For example, youngsters who went to glam-rock concerts also wore their satin pop group scarfs like this for acts such as T.Rex, Slade, Sweet, Gary Glitter, David Bowie etc.
It probably peaked with Bay City Rollers fans and their tartan scarfs around 1975/76, and as all trends do, kinda fizzled out soon after.

  2. I remember people fighting at the football matches used to tie their scarves round their wrists.
    Easy for an opponent to grab in a fight.
