Vol. 7 the s used clothing as a Skins & Rude Boys Now! Vol. 7 to communicate amongst themselves and as a way to stand out against opposing casual groups. Many conclusions can be drawn about a person by studying the way they choose to represent themselves to society using clothing. Casuals used clothing to create a sense of unity, they were identified by oppositional groups by whatever trend they preferred to adopt; at the time, they not only used this as a way to affiliate themselves as a group, but also as a way to segregate themselves from other subcultures.
Casuals from South Wales were identified by wearing the recognisable Burberry tartan.

These items were recognisable to members of the public due to their reputation as designer brands and their association with wealthy, fashionable members of society.

The two new subcultures were loosely based on upper and lower class Gravity - Jaja - Here (File, Album). The lower class became the subculture that are now known as Skinheads. The original Skin style was noticeably basic, and consisted mostly of sturdy work-wear such as white work shirts, braces, and work boots.
The Skins did not operate under a specific label at the time, they were merely bored working class youths during a time of social inequality.

It was overtly racist and was the cause of the violence and discrimination that is now eponymous with Skinheads. The new-wave Skinheads adopted the style mostly because it was intimidating, but held very few of the original Skinhead beliefs or interests, such as music taste.
