This was as much seen in school as it was out of school.
The most common sight was when the coats were worn smartly with Ben Sherman shirt, Levi Sta-Prest trousers and Doc Marten boots, as in the top image.
A slightly rougher/tougher look was when they were worn with jeans and gang jersey.
In the middle picture, the 2 charming chaps in their Harringtons are wearing exactly the same gear Billy MacKenzie is wearing in the photo of him aged 14, I put up a few days ago!
The guy on the left of the shot has a dress blazer, clip-on braces and a rather severe razor parting in his skinhead! He must have went to Sweeney Todd's!!
The Crombie was often topped off with a red hankie poking out the top pocket!
Yeah, the 70's boot boys...they were everywhere!!
