During the early 1980s,
some street punks and Oi!
skinheads adopted elements of the dress style from the film A Clockwork Orange.
On stage, bands like The Adicts often
wear bowler hats, white shirts, white trousers, braces, and black
combat boots in imitation of Alex De Large, the protagonist of the
film and novel. Some fans also wore fishtail coats, although more often
they wore black leather biker jackets or long black Crombie coats.
