Sir Richard Starkey of the Turntable though. That's a weirdly sweet thing. And silly.

Melinda, keep those socks. It's cold outside! And the socks go with cocoa. :)

Flared jeans were a thing for a while. I liked them better than skinny jeans.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:45pm Ken From Hyde Park:

What style are the ties, wide or thin?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:46pm Linda Lee:

we did have very good cheap thrift shops, however ~ i rarely wore 80s clothes in the 80s. the ties are ultra thin, Ken.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:46pm Carmichael:

I was in a skinny tie band for a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:47pm Linda Lee:

were you? :-D

Currently ties are worn below the knee in Washington. What are they trying to hide?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:47pm melinda:

I also have a cardigan from the 80s that was vintage then, somehow it has survived. The buttons are cool but falling off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:48pm common:

hee, geezerette! love flared Jeans and ties. wearing both right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:48pm Linda Lee:

vintage was our saving grace. & black leather biker jackets that really haven't changed since the 40s
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/22/18 5:48pm dale:

70s i wore 40s clothes. 80s i wore 50s. 90s was 60s and 70s. it all depended on who died and had their entire closet donated to the thrift shop.

@geezerette: They're overcompensating for their, uh, shortcomings.

ha!! that's true dale!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/22/18 5:49pm dale:

...and i still have my schott biker jacket from the 80s.

Common,how is that tie decorated?

Brainiac, chuckle...:D

Need a Fabio Quick Take segment on skinny-tie bands.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:50pm Linda Lee:

nice, dale! do you oil it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:51pm Linda Lee:

mine are getting sorta stiff .. not sure what to do.
Avatar    Thu. 3/22/18 5:52pm geezerette:

"Thrift" shops are fun. Still! Thrill of the hunt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:53pm Linda Lee:

i hear they're catching on to eBay pricing though. a shame.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/22/18 5:53pm dale:

i've done some leather treatment from the tractor supply but probably good old mink oil is the best best. problem is you can't oil the part that faces the inside lining.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:53pm northguineahills:

@dale: I started buying my own clothes in HS in the early 90s, and yes, it was mostly late 60s/early 70s (and later 70s) fashion. Heck, I went to prom wearing a polyester leisure suit in '94. (My mom [still] manages a charity thrift store, so, when the nursing homes/order of the moose lodges etc dumped their clothes off of the recently deceased, I got first dibs!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/22/18 5:55pm dale:

excellent northguineahills. 90s i was wearing polyester leisure suits i found. got lots of strange looks but the one's that 'got it' became friends.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:55pm Linda Lee:

@dale ~ indeed, guess it's the ol' mink oil if i want to keep wearing my jackets.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:56pm Linda Lee:

a dream come true for 80s Linda Lee, ngh :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/22/18 5:57pm dale:

mink oil. lexol, saddle soap, whatever you can get a hold of. i've used lemon pledge on my shoes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:57pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Probably now's a good time to buy mink oil before mango-pants puts a tariff on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:58pm Linda Lee:

even if so, if there's a will ...

Thanks Fabio!

i love two things about this Taanila piece. i hear 'present/prison' and that appeals to the existentialist in me. and the moonlight sonata phrasing reminds me of my mom playing it.

Had a Schott motorcycle jacket from the 70's for ages, as all of "Andy's children" did. Even wore it to the MOMA opening party of his retrospective.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:59pm chris:

thanks, Fabio!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 3/22/18 5:59pm Linda Lee:

gee hadn't thought of Andy's jacket at all!
