History repeated…

4 10 2010

The time – 1994. The place – Dartford Market. I was just a wee man and wanted nothing more than to be in Chakademus and Pliers. I wandered around with my nan, whilst the kids who were allowed to go out with their mates all in their adidas tracksuits and Reebok Classics mocked me in my patterned jumper.

If you needed one more scrap of evidence that life is a massive piss-take and that what looks good and what’s fashionable are two different things then check out these extremely trendy patterned jumpers. As always, I was before my time:

Multicoloured Aztec Cardigan, Topman £32

Grey Fairisle sweatshirt, Topman £28

This fashion development has caused a lot of debate in my house. I think I’m on the against side because the mental scars are too deep! Do you think this is the height of geek chic, or do they make you look like a Church organist?

I landed here accidentally. When I made a search in Bing, your web-site was at number one but is not about what I was looking for. Just wanted to write a note to tell you that I like the design and style of your site.

I appreciate the feedback. I’ve also read your site and you make some interesting observations. I never really thought about dark, earthy colours reflecting the economic climate! Keep going with it.

Hi Jerry,

I’m no expert by any means. The blog is more a labour of love. I’ve always been interested in the aesthetic and looking at trend vs timeless clothing. Hope you check back soon.
