Outsiders and losers were into music/scooter/skateboard based underground subcultures with cheap/homemade and scrounged fashion but football casuals were willing to spend serious money and dressed to look good rather than as outsiders. They were into the most mainstream sport there is in the world, drank beer and chased ass. Prone to right wing violence as well. Were all football casuals white? I'm pretty sure. Anyway very distinct from most fashion tribes, I respect them coz they respected quality and having the best before the Japs showed the world how to really do it.

Clueless, why even bother posting?
