A minority group. Typically a male, who lives life alternately, usually going against the stream with attitude, self care, and pronunciation of words.

Occasionally seen with anything from a small mullet to Jewish side curls, they will always be sporting some form of beard, a torn scarf (even at the slightest breeze) some skinny jeans with a slash around the knee to reveal the under skin. The purebred breed 'scruffs' are barrel chested, with what looks like a forest of black escaping through their capital V neck, or loosely buttoned flannelette. Often an array of antique necklaces are draped over the shoulders, sometimes entangling with the neck beard. Apparel is strictly earthly colours with a mix of blacks and greys.

They use leather twine to bind or repair, or even make a bracelet if they are feeling creative, which is their normal state of mind.

Sometimes known to speak with a husky voice, often taking horse tablets to help them draw out words and over emphasise vowels, even to the point on stuttering on words such as 'R-r-r-r-romp'.
Joel Houston, Russel Brand
