    I sort of recall it Victor yes - it looks well cool no doubts

    All these looks just add to the "Variations oof the james Dean Styles" I think which simply can not be beaten as a look I find/think.

      We idolized James Dean in the club circuit. There was a strong rock and roll and rockabilly revival going on in the early 80's and many kids did try to copy some of the old 50's styles with a more modern take on it. Quite often today certain young men still seem to have a variation on that look. They think it's all new but try telling them the looks over 60 years old, they won't believe you.

        Indeed I had forgot about these - though I liked Logo-ed ones too, but you don't find plain ones anymore, which at one time you'd find decent ones (not ones that fall a-part after a few washes)

        Football Shirts where another fave I had too "back in the day" ... now you hardly see any these day's par the main sports Shops as you don't see Sportswear (par the norm in general) which i'd love seeking out in any Market/Cheaper shop etc

          When I was 6 my parents bought me a generic football kit in medium blue, which my brother was quick to spot looked a lot like Chelsea's strip.

            This sure was a class Jacket - though of course the guy in the photo was wearing it for a photo shoot or something similar possibly, so it'd look cool regardless as would any item of clothing in such a scenario that was popular in it's day!

            Another favourite I had was WindRunners (and still arte them even now) in how they look great with a T-Shirt and Tracksuit Bottoms or Joggers like they did in the 1980s/1990s!! It is amazing how a look from a Star like James dean or John Travolta can be altered ever so slightly but still have longevity I think

              Also those magic shoes from Clarkes with a key in the bottom in a bubble. I went mad for them, and my mum wouldn't let me have them because they were slingbacks!
              I would love to have one of these again. I'd wear it now. They felt like really warm comfy jamas. They sometimes turn up on ebay but are usually expensive and that's not what I'm about. Usually if I wish hard enough things come along soon after in a charity shop so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
              I got some pink vintage Reebok hi tops today in the charity shop just after seeing Roxy on EastEnders some similar the other day and thinking WOW I really want some of those. My good friend will be rolling her eyes till she sees the converse I got her

                Yes yes I did in the nineties then again a few years back. They were so smart. I till occasionally do with smart trousers.

                    Grey trousers with coloured 'streaks' in the fabric.
                    Hi-Tec trainers. Still around but nowhere near as popular as in the 1980s.
                    Bermuda shorts with bold graphics on them.
                    Old school BMX outfits.

                    I find class photos from schools where kids don't wear uniform a perfect snapshot of fashions from the era. Videos of TV presenters are another.

                      I'm not sure if I'm sure about Bermuda shorts Arran .. but I guess they do hold a "place in time",- though I still think Timmy Mallatt when I see these and/or Bemuda Shorts

                      I recall the Grey Trousers with the Coloured Streaks well - particulary Tracksuit Bottom (Jogger Style ones) that I hated first time around but like v much now

                      Who else can recall Football Club trainers with the Badges on them too? I think Reebook made some!

                        I really liked having Bermuda shorts, at the same time swimming trunks when from skin tight to baggy.

                        I wanted some cycling shorts in the summer of 1989 but my Mum would let me have any because I waa getting "puppy fat".

                          Being an 80s Kid - most people wore or desired to have a Windrunner - even if the Colours never matched (which was often the case) they still looked amazingly trendy I think, without doubt. Still I think the up-darted version are a good match for the 1980s and have re-juvenated the idea! Did any of other members like/rate Windrunners back in the 1980s/1990s?

                              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!!

                                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.
