A term coined originally in Liverpool to group together a certain type of person through their clothes, language and ideals.
The female scally is often seen with a much older male scally. Hair is scraped back and heavily hairsprayed. Limitless amounts of make-up cover any blemishes, and the look is finsihed off with big hooped earrings. Clothes wise, tracksuit tops and tracksuit bottoms or jeans are preferred, along with the mandatory trainers. VPL always helps. Smoking and a young baby in a second hand pushchair are good accessories.
To find a scally, your best bet will be to parade the local big shopping mall, the local nightspots or, especaiily in seaside resorts, the main parade along the beach where numerous scally cars can be seen circling round, and round, and round...

Well educated person: ' No thanks, my sexual life is adequate enough'

The pinnacle of the scally is the dealer (Same as, but more expensive sportswear, a BMW with chrome alloys and lots of drugs to sell). The scally mode of transport is the stolen car. The scally music is.. whatever bland RnB/Pop/smooth rap is in the charts that week, or anything that sounds Jamaican.

Their groups will stick a non-distinct, but recognisable code of dress (so as to assume that everything they do is for the group, as opposed to for the individual). Usually, they are athletic and physically dominant. While scallies can be of any class, the average is high working class or lower middle-class.
Scallies intimidate those who are seen as a threat. They are interested in whatever is in style, and contemporary, as opposed to long-standing institutions.
Owning a Nirvana album does not assert any superioir musical taste or ability, nor can it be defined as "real music", because all music is real.
Thus concludes another session fo bitching at the non-exoteric "moshers", and the annoying as fuck "scallies".
