Some of these descriptions area little bland so I'm going to try and tie up the loose ends. Metal Head attire isn't really necessary, though due to the music they listen to this generally defines their fashion. A band t-shirt supporting a band of either thrash, death, heavy or shred metal is usually seen, from the older forty plus year old metal heads, right down to the younger generation. Pants aren't that important and generally they adopt a set of baggy jeans, camo cargos or anything they can find such as old black slacks. Though Metal Heads are very defensive of their musical tastes they also respect certain alternate rockers, mainly for their instrumental expertise (Vai, Satriani, Herman Li, Yngwie Malmsteen). Hair is usually shaven or grown long, often left greasy. Facial hair may include a beard or clean shaven - though as before, nothing is definate. Shoes are generally a set of black pumps (generally not converse) or dark shades of skate shoes. Coats are often seen, either a dark green or camo with some adopting a leather jacket style attire with metal parts. They often have a tight knit group of friends, around 3 to 5 in number who they are most probably part of a band with and take part in recreational activities such as going to gigs and sitting around talking in town. Though calm they can be extremely strong when antagonised and Neds should never mistake a Metal Head for an emo, whom they despise for bringing down an entire sub-culture of metal into an abyss of pop. They generally have a good sense of humour and once befriended become a strong accomplice. Most real metal heads hate Nu-metal for dipping its feet into the pop-culture and will offend any music related to it or simply shun it away. (System of a Down, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot, K0rn, NOFX, Green Day...)
