Ah those we're the days.

Recommended Posts

Going out with work on the 18th Feb as it's a few people's birthdays, they are wanting to dress up so I suggested we go in bad taste, by this I mean in clothes we wore ten/fifteen years ago when we thought we were sooooo cool!

 

So I was goona go in my Rockports, Eclipse jeans, Kappa tracksuit top and Burberry cap.

 

The lasses are all gonna get their hair permed and fish out their sovereigns.

 

Does anyone have any horrific memories of what they used to wear cos they thought it was "wicked" back in the day?

10-15 years ago I'd have been firmly in my thrash metal phase. Ah, the joy of faded T-shirts, ripped jeans and dodgy hair. ;)

Was that before or after you turned the bat the wrong way round? :D

Well the idea is that if everyone dresses like this they'll see were in costume and will let us in, like how they let lasses in to bars in their pyjama's and Muslims dressed as suicide bombers and that.

I remember all of them....

 

As for dodgy clothes, I remember being 16 and having a collection of paisley scarves, shirts and Lacoste jumbers (in yellow and pink).

 

All topped off with a light blue Miami Vice jacket, sleeves rolled up and a t-shirt underneath. ;)

 

EDIT: Oh and white pants, deck shoes and no socks..

NAF NAF jumpers anyone?

 

I had one.

90584[/snapback]

 

 

I had one too! <_<

 

 

 

I remember how much I used to idolise Michael Jackson. I had this black bomber coat with dog chains on it along with my black cord pants on. I would go down stairs, put my Bad record on while my parents sat there disturbed watching me while I span around grabbing my crotch...! ;)

 

Then came the Run DMC era, adidas trainers, no laces with the massive tongues sticking out along with my trendy black addidas tracksuit. Me and my brother used to turn the Subbuteo Board upside down and attempt some break dancing while he played the theme tune to Beverly Hills Cop on his tape deck…!. :D
