This is a seminal body of work that explores the intersections of race, socio-economics, music subcultures and fashion. Despite is 1979 publication, most of the theoretical analysis is applicable today. I thank my undergrad professor from “Sociology of Popular Music” course for introducing me to this text that I still refer to today.
