    Remember the 80's? I do.

    And that's why I'm watching "Three O'clock High."

    ... maybe the latter part of the 80's, I was still coming down from the psychedelic 70's in the early 80's ...

    I spent most of the 80's working at a marina, running a boat rental business and drinking heavily.

    Funny stuff. That movie was filed at my wife's high school (not too long after she graduated).

    My parents bought me a K-Mart knock off that I got relentlessly teased about. I think it had a tag "Players Club" or something like that.

    I think that was the start of my complete and utter disdain for name brands. I HATE brand names and try to get clothes without them. I even got the dealer to take the make and model and everything that was removable off my car when I bought it (previous car too).

    I invented the 80's.

    That doesn't mean I remember them so well however. The Mets did win a World Series, I think I was there. The ticket stubs are in a frame on the wall in the family room at any rate.

    Whoah.

    never had one myself. I have always been "anti-fashion". Makes it interesting at my house since the wife works in the fashion industry.

    I think it was this and a few similar instances that turned me into a complete anit-fashion person. Well.....that and being an engineer.

    My wife gets in to fashion more than she admits to. She watches "What not to wear" and many similar type shows. She hates it when I wear something 'ugly'. She doesn't realize that if she'd quit bugging me about it, I'd probably wear them less....I only do it because I know it bugs her fashion sense.

    I have clothes from the 80's that I still wear. But my Members Only compatible jacket didn't survive the 90's.

    I had too many knock offs to remember them all. It was horrible. My parents never had money, so they tried their best. I couldn't make them realize that if they couldn't afford the real deal items, it would be better not to have them.

    I remember in 6th grade asking for Converse All-Star high tops. I got some K-Mart knock off that were well known to the kids. They had their own special nick name. They called them "hot boxes" because the stitching came together in to two small boxes at either side on top.

    Instead of "O.P.", I got some Hawaiin looking shirt called "Pacific Dream" or something like that.

    Too many to remember them all.

    All I remember is me and my brothers beating each other up and building living room forts out of the couch cushions.

    Remember when Reeboks first came out with black, leather sneakers? Yeah, everybody in my school had them. My parents were poor too. So they got me black knock-offs. And everyone knew it. I don't think I ever got the real deal until I started working. I appreciated their help. But it never paid off when I was shoved in a locker or head dumped in a trash can.
