View Full Version : Comic lined coats and pod shoes
Can anyone else remember the craze of wearing a coat, with comic stips printed on the inside lining,at about the same time we all wore what i think were Pod shoes which had to have the leather tags still attached by the laces?
OMG i remeber the coats my friend had a matching school bag to one!! And pod shoes I'd totally forgotten them!!
That goes way back to the 70's and kicker shoes
I bought a pair of POD trainers last year, still wearing them now....:p Can't say i recal the comic strip lining though, but sounds kool to me.
I had a denim jacket with comic lining... it was stonewashed.... ohh the shame!!! :p
I didn't recall the pod shoes, until I looked at the link.... I would say happy memories but I am still cringing at the mental picture of how I must have looked.
I remember Pods..mine were flat and made of blue leather with little holes in the front and a buckle across, with the Pod tag hanging down.
Didn't have the comic strip coat lol but did get into those reversible jumpers that were like wearing a duvet...one of mine had pale blue sky and white clouds on one side and the opposite on the other :o
I remember the comic-strip lining in coats. Course I didn't have one. Can't place the Pod shoes tho...
i dont remember the comic strip coat linings but i had a pair of Pod shoes 2 years ago....didnt realise they had been about that long.
Yes I thought POD shoes were another example of "Labelisim" of the 90's didn't know they were around in the 70's
I remember Pods from the 90's you were well cool if you had a pair of pods Mine were dark blue with a buckle. They were disgusting comfy though. :D
Yeah I had a comic lined jean jacket too. I think I also had some jeans like that aswell they were ripped with the picture behind.
Some other jeans i remember wearing a few years later in the mid 90's were black but the top back half was red. You could also get other colours.
Don't remember pod shoes but I had Kickers and Wallabies, then i went all smart and had penny loafers. I heard the other day that the proper Kickers are back in!
No fear have picked up on the comic strip/Lichtenstein look for their hoodies.
The comic-patterned items seem to be 'in' right now - check out the Oasis in Brum if you don't believe me. I thought about buying something last time I was there, but tbh at my age it would have to be a black overcoat lined with a comic strip I actually read and no-one's produced that yet.
Talking of 70's footwear, anybody remember Kios shoes? Think Adidas Stan Smith in colours like navy blue with a red kios rectangle in the heel.
At our school the girls used to where the jackets inside out for some reason. Maybe it was the fashion.
