411: how to do the brothel creeper
Now let's not beat around the bush. It's a marmite item. You either love it, or you'd rather stick pins in your eyes. Give it a chance?
  'The Brothel Creeper' initially designed for men creeping in not so savoury parts of London, was later used in the 50s by a hip thrusting, hand-jiving Presley. UK Teddy Boys closely followed, then introducing it into their 'neo-edwardian' wardrobe, making them look all 'hardcore'. They've been a hit.
    Yet how do you wear them? Observing street style is one of the best mediums of finding style inspiration, and then you simply do it your own way.

1. Wear it with black skinnies rolled 7/8th's, and white socks for that Danny Zuko daredevil look, pair with a leather jacket or a double breasted pea coat for winter and that's it.
2. Wear it with a high waisted midi skirt a-line or straight fitted then finish with a high necked shirt tucked in. Cardi for preppy.
3.It's winter wrap your pins up,perhaps a tapered jumpsuit get the 80s involved.
