Storyline

The extraordinary insightful filmed story of an often over-looked youth subculture that swept across cities like Liverpool, Manchester and London when notorious football firms stole expensive designer sportswear from the countries they visited. It didn't start with the high-street giants telling these lads what to wear. Instead, they set the trends and the high-street stores caught up. As the 1980s began in Britain, under the radar the 'casual' had already arrived. The film includes recently-unearthed archive footage and gives insightful interviews with personalities like Peter Hooton, who were at the heart of the story at a time when football and fashion mattered more than corporate hospitality and sanitized stadiums. Written by Cass Pennant

This DVD will keep you intrigued all the way through. It's a comprehensive look at the 80s Casual scene. It's not just for the casual but for anyone interested in street fashion and culture. You will also see the impact on what this fashion has had on today's high street fashion. Includes a look at today's youth who have adopted the Mod / Casual look. Interviews with some of the label brands of the time. The extras are just as good with a running time of 75 minutes. The main feature also runs for 75 minutes. There are features that an original 80s casual might not be aware of, a casual outfit in a museum, a casual band that played at Stamford Bridge. Well worth it.
