introducing the queerest not-queer Swiss greasers

FML, I love these Swiss greasers and their denim!! It’s looking pret-ty queer over here.

Karlheinz Weinberger photographed Zurich’s post-WWII rebel youth in the 60’s, when being cool meant DIY denim and GIANT belt buckles.  The Swiss subculture movement was  called the Halbstark or “Half-Strong”.  His book is called Rebel Youth, you can buy me a copy if you want.

Check out these gritty kids, their denim, and love for Elvis.
