Mods and Rockers

What were the Mods and Rockers? Well the Mods or modernists, as they were known were a youth sub culture that liked Scooters, ska music, parka jackets and were generally regarded as being the smarter dressed of the two groups.

Scooters.
Scooters are still as popular as ever

The Rockers had their own Uniform which consisted of a black leather jacket, Denim jeans, Black leather boots with white socks which were rolled over the tops of the boots. A white scarf was regarded as a great fashion accessory.
Rockers like Rock and Roll music, which some pundits will tell you is where the name 'rockers' came from.
