    I had a pair of yellow leather trainer/boxer boots in the 80s , 2nd coolest to my Doc Marten shoes (toffee apple coloured)
    I still have the shoes but the colour has darkened somewhat now.

    The 1980s were a decade of daring fashion, colours, and silhouettes—as well as a lot of permed hair. It was one of the most diverse decades in fashion, with styles ranging from torn tights and biker jackets to polished lightweight blazers and poof dresses, and style icons ranged from Joan Jett to Joan Collins.

    Canít recall what I wore in the 80ís ( my twenties ) but I do recall wearing parallel trousers at secondary school , followed by two-tone parallels soon after ... I also remember going on holiday to St Ives , Cornwall in the mid seventies and being shocked how far behind they were as regards teenage fashions

    I also went through a phase of wearing Ď loons Ď which were skintight on the thigh and as wide as a tent from the knee down !!

    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.
    I not certain but half or way past half that Del Boy in Only fools had one of those - sure indeed they was the Bees Knees and represented style for a Nightclub before Nightlubs slacked 1000 degress on respectable dress codes!! Though saying that it night of been Mikey now thinking back not Del!! Either way though MalcomAndSheldon I think I'd only endorse it, if it was reversed tied like how we aimed for at School to copy Paul weller and co!

    Agreed yeah but I prefer my Joggers or the like than Jeans or like Nike airMax trakkies/Joggers - like the leather esq kind/those what sqeak funny when you sit down!

    Talking of James Dean, Tex - that line from OFAH when Rodney dressed as so and either grandad or uncle Albert or Del said (but I think it was Uncle Albert now on reflection) that said "was that before the Car Crash or after" as poor Rodders had wrecked the effort so bad/badly - which is incvarably the case and can either make or wreck a style if not copied/immitated correctly! Never-theless what a corker of a line indeed no doubts

    True yes I agree - though he was not an 1980s Guy of course

    Unless of course your Rodney from Only fools and you make an hash of it, like he did

    On a sub-note though i'd swap the Jeans for Trakkies/Joggers mind as hate and detest Jeans!!

    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!!

    Had a fishtail parka during the 1980s Mod revival thing - they were expensive as hell, so mine was a second hand thing which didn't fit and thus the fishtail ended somewhere round my backside. But I had a fishtail parka and that's what counted.

    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.
