I’m a little in awe of this picture of Bill Hailey and his Comets from 1957, the energy and movement make it such a great shot.
I love the tartan jackets, they feel a little bit christmassy and the check is a good quality print. To get a ’50s influenced look with tartan wear a traditional check scarf with a pair of simple, neat black jeans and t-shirt with a zip-up jacket. Greased hair and brothel creepers are compulsory.
