    I loved these sort of Shewll Suits - but more 90s-ified!!

    A Vintage Shop near me is crazy on the amount they are selling and seeing them on Sunday there made my day/part of the start of 2018 even too!!

    Around 1991/1992 - we had a trend to wear the Jackets as Coats for School - and a few of us asked/begged to wear the Trousers for PE (as it was allowed) and they said "yeah, ok" but it always 'pended on the Teacher that day - so never happened lol!!

    Flat-top haircut. As it grew out, I turned it into one of those fluffy Limahl style mullets - my most grievous fashion sin. I regret it even now.
    Wow Limahl - he is going back a bit .... but what a stylish dude he was MalcolmAndSheldon!!

    Though I never went in for Hairstyles then tbh - but Ties yer - i lved the 80s creations (as I have said elsewhere on here about Only Fools and Horses and del Boy's "Northumbria Bus Company Style Tie" ... I loved creations like those with mad colour merges and mixes and the Piano ones of course (though idealy worn just with the Skinny bit showing)!! Thanks for the memories here mate!!

    Really beat up white baseball boots, laces un fastened. Black 501 jeans, again beat to cr@p with rips holes and frays. T-shirt with an unfastened lumberjack shirt over the top of it, or a really baggy sweat shirt.

    Donald's picture above makes me think of the Scousers characters on Harry Enfield's Television Show.

    To be honest, I would have been a t-shirt and jeans person back then - I remember wearing shell suits but that was only around 1991-1992 when most other people (cf David Icke) wore them. I would never wear them today, and I was thinking "did I really wear that back then?"

    I agree with you though DemonEyeX, it sure was a prized piece of clothing yes!

    The quality went downhill when they became popular though.
    The modern rereleases are OK, but nowhere near as nice.
    The originals had an embossed Nike zip & the logo was embroidered.
    I'm still after a mid '80s original in XL, gotta be mint though...

    Wore a lot of shell suits.

    Wore lots of adidas and reebok stuff.

    I think the Trainers you mention was the ones with Air on the side that helped them as you say Darren. These Trainers became immensely trendy and very popular indeed I recall

    Being a kid of the 1990s I have never owned any Bermuda shorts, nor an old school BMX outfit or a shell suit. I don't think I have ever owned a pair of Hi-Tec trainers either.

    One of my favourite items of clothing as a kid was a grey pair of trousers with coloured streaks. Trousers and not a tracksuit. They must have been at least 10 years old and various people at the time claimed that they were out of the ark but I wasn't one bit fussed.

    What too about the 'John Travolta" Look wearing a T-Shirt underneath your Shirt with No Buttons done up!? Particulary if it was with those heavy Padded Coat Typed Shirts, the idea looked well cool!!
