If you took an average man in the street, dressed in the fashions of the day:

And took someone from 1955 and plonked them into 1965 they would stand out like a sore thumb. 

And took someone from 1965 and plonked them into 1975 they would stand out like a sore thumb

And took someone from 1975 and plonked them into 1985 they would stand out like a sore thumb

And took someone from 1985 and plonked them into 1995 they would stand out like a sore thumb

And took someone from 1995 and plonked them into 2005 or 2015 or 2021 you would probably not give them a second glance, other than maybe think their clothes were a little baggy. 

Why has fashion spent almost 30 years in statis? 

Spooky, was speaking to a mate about this when I was in a pub in Cheshire the other week. 

I think the 90's had a distinct look.... certainly early to mid 90s. 

I'd agree that in the last 15 years... perhaps 20 years, I can't see any difference.

I'm sorry but grown men going out at night dressed like a big girl? Never going to happen.

I don't care what you say, I think its great that women are so empowered now they don't need to shave to go out and have a good time. Too often they have been dictated to, by the patriarchy, in how they should look and act.

I can find evidence that since 1986 I have been wearing band tshirt, jeans, vans/converse/docs. Its only the decreasing hairline, increasing waistline and band on the tshirt that would give the decade away.

What's your oldest band t shirt? 

I only have three: Big Big Train (current prog band), Mile Twelve (current bluegrass band), and...The Who (UK tour 1973 - very much the worse for wear, but of immense sentimental value).  

EDIT: Technically four, if you include the custom made one that reads

Clark 

& McGuinn 

& Crosby 

& Hillman 

& Clarke 

I don't wear any of them on a day-to-day basis.

Coincidentally I went down a Big Big Train rabbit hole last week as someone mentioned them. Prog isnt my thing but it killed an hour. 
 

My oldest is a Family Cat tshirt that my wife ises when she dyes her hair, its from 1990. I have a weezer one from 1994 that I relax in. Of the ones I leave the house in, I have a Supersuckers “really bad people be tripping” tshirt from 2005. Older than that are reserved for indoors only.

'English Electric: Full Power' is, in my opinion, a stone-cold masterpiece. Everything else by them is disposable.

Sorry busy day , but I’m sure you knew it was coming :)

 

Unless your name is Avril Lavigne or Tony Hawk , under no circumstances should you wear converse or vans

To be fair, when driving through some parts of Telford and the surrounding areas, its like going back to the 80s

I had this problem the other day. Apparently it's something to do with a reply to a tweet getting more likes than the original.

It still 'kin annoyed me that I had to look it up.

It can also be when a tweet has way more comments than "likes" and/or retweets

It's usually an indication that it's a shit tweet or opinion. Because a good tweet or opinion just gets liked or retweeted. A shit one everyone comments on it to tell them how shit it is.

Nah I disagree with this massively.

Well maybe not right now, but only because some 90's fashion is coming back in. Jeans are getting baggier, brands like Ellesse and Lacosse are back in etc.

But before that someone from the 90's would very much standout like a sore thumb in this day and age.

For example, here is a picture of the Man Utd players on a night out from 2005

I think what we have here is a classic example of old people giving it a good chorus of ‘well back in my day…’

My kids would be able to call out the various sub groups of today’s trends and fashions. Personally, I wouldn’t know if someone was in to drill or dressed for gramming, or ready for a weekend of line dancing and chemical toilets. But I trust the kids to be tweeking and subverting fashions well below the 50 year old’s radar.

I remember my parents attempting to buy me a blazer when I was in to all that. All I can say is, I can still spot the difference between Pub Landlord and Steve Marriott. My parents never could and never will.

 

 

100% this

VT always makes me laugh when a load of 40-50 year old blokes who probably go to the pub wearing walking shoes, combat trousers and a Karrimoor fleece mock younger people regarding their fashion (Bicks being one of the prime culprits :) )

 

Spoiler: it's not the young people who are dressed badly...

I used to think something like this, and then I briefly got into watching repeats of the Crystal Maze, and I don't think that any more. Obviously that's just the haircuts, but you wouldn't mistake 90s haircuts for today's at all. 

As above, 90's fashion is very much coming back in now so it's not a great comparison. Curtains are back. 5 years ago anyone sporting curtains would stand out.

I get it but nah.

anyone not wearing socks with loafers is a word removed and always will be. 

Not a personal dig at you either, but it's a shitty trend that hopefully dies out soon. 

There's loads of trends that look shit at the moment (there pretty much always has been), but anyone who were in their 20s in the 80s looked like a right dickhead. 

New Romantics to punk - all shit.
