Flairs

Clothes and shoe trends we have all been tricked into wearing, and maybe still do?

Flairs

Post by dave mc » Sun Jan 14, 2007 5:26 pm

They were great, weren't they?

I had some flairs with 40" bottoms. You could have made a tent with all that material!

:shock: Even my wife never had a 40" bottom.... :shock:

Don't think I ever sported more than 20": I was brought up on drainpipe trousers and these new-fangled fashions weren't something I wanted to take to extremes...
Sworn, b'loody!

Emos have trousers so tight it's a wonder they can sit down.

We had some things called Loons. Skin tight on the ass and thighs with just patch pockets and then vavoom! Flared to an inch of 40"!
Sorry I had to give you that visual of my thighs and ass! But I was cute in those days!

We called them Bermo's.
Short for Birmingham baggys or "bags".

Ok- so just when people started to get the money in, they went around wearing 'bags'? Right...

Believe me, I know that I was born in the wrong generation. I'm not exactly popular at school- I used to bring the guardian into school to read and I have a New York Times Crossword Puzzle hand held thingy. I mean really. I wish I was a 70's kid. Or 60's. They were the best days.

Yeah, but Starz, you'd be old now if you were. You'd be like Xetal was fifty years ago.

Ha! Poor old Xetal. Emphasis on the old. Sure I'd be old now- but the times I would have had would add up for it. I mean- I could go around with less stranger danger- if my mum were looking after me in the 70's she'd let me play on the street from the age of 4, so... unfortunately, nowadays social services are convinced that if you pop out to the shop or let your kid go outside then it's child neglect...
WHATEVER! (Sorry if anybody here works for SS....)

Yes, starz, it was great... you would leave the house at about 9 o'clock in the morning, go and call for your mates and then get lost for hours. If you got hungry you'd go home and grab a sarnie. Teatime was 5 o'clock (every night), it never changed. You'd have your tea and be straight back out before it had even touched the bottom. There was never any one to be scared off, no-one ever tried to tamper with you, there was a great sense of community, everyone knew everyone else (and their business). Oh, I could go on for hours... regale you of stories that would make your hair curl, lots of fun, those were the days and even you know you've missed out on something special. I wouldn't dare let a kid out on the streets nowadays.
