    Yes, and mine was the best one in the school!


    Why on Earth can I suddenly remember I payed exactly 3.50 from Flip for it? I really should start channelling my mind in different ways!

    Can any Ladies/girls at the time remember "Culottes" I think they were called, awful wide legged short trousers, which were meant to look like a skirt.I hated them, they just did not suit me!

    Being old like me means you aren't as conscious of youth fashions, of course whatever people go around in today won't meet with universal approval either.

    Nice new av, Daz.

    I done the fingerless gloves and the legwarmers, and clubbing wore the dresses with the shoulderpads, anyone remember the scarves over one shoulder, new romantic or maybe that was the ninties, i had matching court shoes , beads and plastic button earings for every outfit, one of my favourites colours was electric blue, i also had a big fluffy jumper in that colour too. Remember the bananarama look with the bib n braces.

    When did that happen?
    clothes today are just as bloody awful!
    look at those horrid hoop jumpers on every teenager or lad.
    those shapeless grey tracksuits, burberry caps, those shrunken jackets girls wear, the horrid 60's prints that are back in fashion for girls..
    can't see much common sense there

    plus that gay footballers hair that boys have at the moment

    Narrow leather ties - I had two, one red one blue. Or pastel suits of which Don Johnson used to roll up the sleeves.
    Least favoutite & most pointless : legwarmers, shoulder pads ( why did women want to look like American footballers in the first place ?), fingerless gloves.
    Most uncomfortable : skintight stonewashed jeans.
    What a dreadful fashion parade the 70s&80s were. Great that commonsense has prevailed.

    I was a rocker too in the late 80s, so my clobber consisted of skin tight jeans, various heavy metal band t shirts, denim jacket and basketball boots. I quite often had hippy shouted at me

    Early 80s I remember doing the flourescent socks, also did stonewashed jeans.
