Explosive, truthful, frank and entertaining, Dressers is the definitive social history of young working-class youth culture. From the football terraces of the early 80s to the legendary raves and dance scene in the 90s, Dressers charts the route from Italian sportswear to baggy rave gear - all placed against the backdrop of a small steel-working town 10 miles outside Glasgow.
Oh and I am now coping with serious trainer lust!

I'm not a Motherwell fan and nor do you need to be to appreciate this fine work. Whilst i know two of the people behind the book, that has not tainted this review in any shape or form. Quite simply this is a superb volume that through both words and photographs a plenty documents the exploits of Motherwell's match going Casual football lads from their humble beginnings in the early 80's through to the modern day. Packed full of colour photographs throughout of the clothes,trainers,the lads,the music scene,away trips etc this is a must have book for any self confessed clothes connoisseur who has a more than passing interest in the football Casual scene. The first 500 copies have a numbered silver hologram sticker inside with many of those sold on pre-order. Get it while you can...

This is without doubt THE best book on the subject of football lads that I have ever read. Fantastic pictures and excellent detail shows that the authors are really obcessed with the whole scene. I strongly urge all to buythis exceptional book.
