For the first time, the story of the Casuals is told through the evolution of the all-important look – the ever-changing knitwear, designer labels and haircuts of the moment – which grabbed almost as much attention on the football terraces of the 1980s as the muddy, much-abused match itself.
Packed full of period detail, dry humour and superb illustrations, it’s a rare pleasure to relive the glory years of the tribe that kicked off without a name – were you a Scally, a Smooth or a Trendy? – through the eyes of a front-line fashionista who watched the whole thing unfold at the time.
Author Scottie was, and is, a regular football fan… who throughout the ‘80s nurtured a shared, obsessive yearning to remain one step ahead of the terrace fashion curve. And every priceless item of Lacoste, Fila and Armani designer clobber is now recalled as fondly as a 30-yard Cup final screamer.
The Little Book of Casuals elevates this generation of tasty working-class dandies to the fascination level of the Teds, Mods, Skinheads and Futurists, with whom they shared a heritage of swaggering exhibitionism.
