Topic:Typical Socs

Who are the Socs?


The socs are basically rich kids from the west side of New york, because of their wealth they can drive nice cars and wear nice clothes but they are not only known for their wealth but also for jumping the other gang from the more rundown side of town, they are called the Greasers. The Socs are also known to be handsome and intelligent. The cops often support them. On this Page we will talk about their clothes, cars and much more.

Boy Socs and Girls Socs

Boy Socs are rowdy they wear heavy rings, Madras Shirts, drive corvairs and Mustangs. They drink, smoke and commit crimes like shoplifting, and last of all the jump the Greasers.
Girl Socs are rather polite and nice they would not smoke or drink. They are really pretty too, the soc girls are normally the ones who are the cheerleaders at school. Read in more detailed description about what they wear in the next paragraph "Fashion at that time.....".

Fashion at that time........

Boys wore white socks, white buckskin shoes and trousers and turned-up cuffs. On top off that they wore five-button jackets, beaded belts and colorful, patterned hats. They also wore sweat shirts, cardigans and jeans. Look up at the picture for an example.

Girls would wear scarves along with a blouse and skirt. They would also wear rolled up jeans and jumpers. Both of these looks don't sound like something we would wear anytime.

Socs and Greasers
The biggest difference between the Socs and the Greasers is the money. Socs have more money than the Greasers. Greasers have to work for the money and have a limit of it. The socs are also more sophisticated than the Greasers. The socs have the time to jump the greasers while the greasers barely have the time to even have fun as they are mostly busy with work. Look at the following pictures and compare the differences.

MATTEL TOY AD
We are not trying to sell you the toy gun. This toy ad is from the 1960s, look at what the boy wears and the toys he got to play with. The socs probably got to play with these toys, watch the ad on tv and wear nice clothes while the greasers was the complete opposite of them.
