    Oh the shame! I was 10 and knew no better. Oxford bags and floral shirts with butterfly collars in the 70's.

    In the early '90s, I had a couple of long-sleeve shirts with lurid patterns that could strip paint. I wouldn't dare wear anything as lairy these days.

    Yes buttoned up long sleeved shirts were the thing in the 90's. I had some terrible colours and patterns. Also I remember the big turning point in about '92 when everyone suddenly started wearing their shirts untucked from their jeans. Looked really odd at first.

    A mate of mine (honestly) used to have those weird shirts that changed colour depending in body heat. Ended up with a purple shirt with, like, green armpits !

    Shellsuits. Possibly the second biggest crime against humanity after The Big Bang Theory.

    A pair of huge checked grey flairs that even I hated then (my Ma got them at a jumble sale, and she thought they were lovely) I also got from the same jumble sale, a pair of brown and cream Y fronts - Pure class
