Fashion in the 1960s By: Kristen Schmidt and Amy Klezek Greasers Clothing Boys: http://www.halloweencostumes.net/plus-size-greaser-jacket.html Boy’s typically wore tee-shirts with a leather or denim jacket. T-shirts were usually white or black with rolled up sleeves. They also wore Levi jeans, and sometimes they wore belts. Almost all greasers had their hair slicked back with grease. Hence, the name “greaser”. They sometimes wore flannel shirts and Converse All Stars, or black boots. In the book “The Outsiders”, they mention Johnny’s denim jacket, their slicked back hair, leather jackets, and Levi’s. http://www.ehow.com/list_7739655_did-greasers-wear-1950s-1960s.html Greasers Girls http://leblow.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/sandy-grease.jpg Greaser girls usually wore shorts or skirts that were too short, and clothes that were too tight; compared to the Socs. These include jumpsuits, short shorts, tiny skirts, and low cut tops. In the book, Ponyboy says that he doesn’t like how the greaser girls wear tacky clothes, while the Socs wear more sophisticated clothing. Socs Clothing Girls http://images.wikia.com/theoutsiders/images/6/6 8/Dallas,_Cherry_and_Marcia_at_the_movies.jpg The girls tended to wear high necked, collared shirts, and skirts down below the knee. Their style also was more sophisticated than the greasers. They seemed to care more about how the clothes looked than showing off their body. In the book, Pony is surprised about how differently the Soc girls dress verses the greasers. Socs Clothing Boys http://images2.fanpop.com/images/photos/8200000/Bob-the-outsiders-8221544-514745.jpg People who were considered Socs in the 60s usually wore higher class clothing than the greasers. They would wear khakis, collared shirts, and madras shirts. The madras shirts are plaid shirts that are made with a lightweight cotton material. They would also wear rings so that when they jumped a greaser, it would cause more pain when they punched. In the book, Ponyboy talks about how lucky the Socs were to have the Madras shirts. Johnny was punched by a Soc while they were wearing a ring. It made cuts in his face because the rings are hard and sharp and the edges.
