    I am certainly the opposite to you.
    Mum brought me a few pairs of cord trousers in the late 70's early 80's.Just did not get on with them. Colors like pale blue and purple and plum (gagging here with bulging eyes). Hated the feel of the material. I hardly wore the things only when pressured to do so when we were going out (screaming in my case).NOT COOL. Our RE teacher at school wore either a green swede or brown cord jacket. That was reason enough not to wear the material.
    Never got on with tracksuits either.
    Trainers were ok, but I lived in jeans and still do. They seemed to be one of the few items of clothing that survived when I was a kid and I still see them as hard wearing.

    Most of the 80's saw me in jeans and a moldy old leather jacket which eventually fell apart and ended up being stapled together. When I married it all changed. Gosh I miss that jacket

    I never had Cords (may-be 1 pair) pair but loved my Farrar's and Farrar type Trousers. If I saw some Cords (though it'd have to be at a Car boot Sale or Charity Shop) I'd buy them straight away, but sadly the only decent shop that used to do them was Greenwoods (and as Greenwoods left my town years since) as well too that Cords shrink badly in the wash I'd not know where to find decent ones these day's, but yea without doubt their longievty still exists I think!

    I was'nt that much into fashion in the 1980s but if I had to select a few items I'd pick the Original kind of Tracksuits hat was like a Tracksuit Jumper (the likes that Lizzy on TV:Am wore) and made popular and the Piano Ties that a lot of Pop Stars made popular

    Del Boy on OFAH in-particular once or twice wore this lovely (though some may term it horrid) Grey and Red Tie that reminded me (and still does) of the Northumberland Bus Company Livery of the day .... though I've always liked Pastuaral Colours and faint Autumn ones been a main reason to me liking unusual Colour Schemes I think - why I'm unsure though why!!

    I only got corduroy pants at that time, i liked the wide wale and the jumbo cords best. The thin wale make so much noise and the wide one was softer.

    Oh no! It was bad enough on the 'right' side! Mine was blue on that side with red little dogs on a white background on the other side. I loved it.

    Haha Tricky - I'll admit I did wear mine on reverse, as I loved the small dogs print on that side.

    Thanks for reminding me of my lovely 101 Dalmations reversible sweatshirt - I loved that top, was lovely and warm.
    I had a lovely pair of navy blue Knickerbockers for dressy occasions - early 80's.
    An orange ra-ra skirt - each tier was a different shade - early 80's
    Loved my purple jumpsuit, had a royal blue one too, but it wasn't as comfy - mid 80's.
    Dusky pink checked party dress, which had a netted underskirt to give it more a full look - it was from C&A, mid 80's.
    Ski jackets from C&A - had a pearlesent purple, royal blue one and a pink one - late 80's.
    Black Shellsuit with yellow and green stripes - very late 80's.
    Various jogging suits.
    White sweatshirt with 'Neighbours' logo on it.
    Bermuda shorts in black with fluoresent shapes all over them - v. late 80's/early 90's.
