Yep. That's "1990" alright.

I was fifteen going on sixteen then. Trust me. I knew a lot more about stonewashed denim than I should have.

Seriously, though, did you have anything that compares with that. I mean, really. Fringed. Stonewashed. Denim. Jacket!

You mean ties that were the height of men's fashion 20 years ago?

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Fringe? Hell, no. I drew the line at drawing a Boyz II Men logo on mine and sewing a Star Trek patch onto it.

Don't ask.

You got it.

Also many ties that have a rather Peanuts-like motif to them.

But 1990 is way too young. I also own a mirrorball.

You must be the same age as me, cooleddie. So ... is this the point where I cop to having not only stonewashed ... but bleached (as in I did them myself) denim jeans ... and jacket?

No?

Oh good. I'm safe for now.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I had a pair of Hammer-style parachute pants with velcro when I was fifteen or sixteen.

I know, I know. History's Greatest Monster.

I have a tie I bought for my senior picture in 1991 ... that I still wear today. I still get compliments on it.

I'll have to find (or take) a photo of it sometime.

ETA:
Speaking of horribly dated family photos ... I offer this cringe-inducing relic of the 70s:

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Samuel and I sported the same Luke Skywalker bowlcut back then. I haven't yet scanned and posted any photos, but around the time I was in first grade I wore a wide variety of Star Trek, Star Wars and superhero shirts to school and outside to play. Kid's flannel shirts, too.

My juicy disco bangs at age six could have covered up the entire visible surface of the Moon.

Saved by the fucking awesome Superman belt buckle!

Nothing can save my dad (and yes, that's me). The sad part is this wasn't the 70s, but holdover. On second thought, his nikes are kinda bitchin':

If we're talking 1970's, here's one of me from back in the first half of the decade:



And going back to the early 60's, my parents. Cool shades, I think you'll agree.

I love old pictures of young people. Your dad looks pretty damn cool with that hair and those shades. I don't have very many photographes dating before the 80s, but I do have a couple of my grandfather. This would have been about the same time period, early to mid 60's, probably on a reservation. My mom looks a lot like him, and so did my older brother.

Nice!

Yeah, my dad was cool for a time. Then me and my sister came along and ruined everything!

I think I've posted this before, but here's me from 1990 or thereabouts:
