To make up for their shortcomings they wear a uniform of fake designer gear and hang around on the streets looking for stuff to rob. The ultimate outfit is anything by LaCoste "Cos its kewl laaa". They normally only own one tracky and their single mothers dont know how to clean it so they are a bit grimy and they stink.
Once a person has succumbed to scallydom there is no saving them and they are doomed to spend the rest of their lives hanging round street corners with other losers drinking cheap cider and 25 lager.
To rebel against their sad lot in life scallies actually create a perverse sense of pride in belonging to the group and attempt to 'out scally, the other members to gain approval.

The other train of thought it that 'Scally' was derived from a tough Irish-Liverpool family of the same name, the Scally family had a lot of sons who were always up to no good and thus the beginnings of the term Scally.
A scally is not from Birmingham, Leicester, Keighley, Corby, Brighton, Rotterdam or Dar es Salaam - Scallies are Scousers or Mancunian in origin, Scallies dress, act, talk and interact in a very individualistic way.
Scallies don't tend to work, they end to dress in sports/casual gear, they tend to be Irish Catholic in origin and they tend to smoke, drink take too many drugs.
Scallies are physically puny and tend not to be able to fight all that well - despite their violent tenedencies - they get round this by breeding pitbull terriers and walking them everywhere and carrying weaponary which they will use liberally.
Scallies tend to come from a long line of workshy, deviant, unemployable and violent bloodlines and DNA. Despite this some scallies make it to the big time in the sporting and musical fields - most noteworthy are the Gallagher brothers and Joey Barton - proper scalls them three.
The nearest cousin to the scally is the Glaswegian 'Ned'
both Celtic in DNA attitude and look (weedy, pale and they tend to smell)the scally is here for the time being so we all better get used to it - and that means buying a decent house alarm.
Guy scallys walk round is stripey sports jumpers or polo t-shirts with their collars up OR a 'hoody' cause it makes them look bad init, with sports trackies that are tucked into their socks which looks SO stupid and they think it looks good. They also wear the most ugly bulky sports trainers ever or rockport. Oh and lets not forget their 'bling bling' fake gold cheapo chains from argos or somewhere like that. A lot of the time they wear caps and if they don't then they usually have a skin head or hair with loads of greasy gel on it.
Girl scallys Usually wear sports jumpers (sometimes stripey to match their scally boyfriend's) and trackies, some girls even tuck their trackies into their socks aswell. They wear those same bulky trainers or rockport (which look even more stupid on the girls) and when they're not dressed like that they dress like prostitutes. Their hair is usually bleached blonde, tied up scraped to their head with LOADS of hairspray and hair mousse/gel. They wear a lot of make up so you can spot them by their orange foundation covered faces with loads of mascara which goes all clumpy and a ton of eyeliner, lipgloss and eye shadow (preferably a bright colour) Scally girls also wear the cheapo bling bling which usually consists of a massive 'doll/clown' chain or an initial chain which is as big as their head, and hooped earrings that they could fit round their head and a ton of rings on their fingers, usually a sovereign.
WARNING, if you are NOT a scally you will be considered a freak and stared at and shouted abuse at.
You can find scallys near shops and shopping centres with a fag in their hand, bottle of cheap cider or lambrini listening to the latest "bangin chooooooons" on their music phone which consists of DJ this and DJ that 'in the mix motha fucka' and talking about how their weekend was ''wicked m8 yeh i got into dis fight with dis propa mong yeh, was fuckin massiveeeee, then i went owt wit my otha m8s n got propa wasted n fucked outta my face, smokin weed all night yeh n gettin well bad pissed, cant rememba a fuckin fing m8, was minters"
