Charva is the romany (gypsy) word for unruly youth. Why it originates in Newcastle when there is next to no gypsies is beyond me. In my part of the north-east (Darlington) the word charva refers to gypsies as that is the correct meaning. The little tossers from Newcastle are just wannabe gypsies (fuck knows why) hence the use of the word charva to describe themselves.
Real charvas wear real burberry caps and rockports as they can afford the flash gear because they (somehow) make lots of money unlike the little wannabe rentas.

charva's aren't bad people they just have their own style, they don't like people who aren't charva's because all the other people don't like them!
so what if they wear stripey jumpers, berghaus coats, rockports and burberry caps and all the otha stuff mentioned its just a style just like goths have their own style, and to be honest i think charvas look better than goths, because no offence but their is no need to wear that much eyeliner, and really what is the point in wearing black all the time i mean its just so depressing! its not the end of the world ya no! wel i wouldn't say charvas are the best people in the world, but some can be alrite!
but it does seem that all they care about is tabs and cider! but what is wrong with having fun now and then!
ewwwwwww lend es a tab like, or i'll bash ya!! ohhhhh buzzin!!
