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

There again, in view of your retro-enthusiasm, if you'd been a teenager in the 60's (like me) you'd have probably been obsessed with being a 1920's flapper rather than liking those disgustingly long-haired Rolling Stones/Beatles - or even that evil and corrupting rock & roll music....

So... you were born in the 40's?...ahem... No, I meant that if I was BORN in the early 60's, then that would work out cool.

Yes, being born in the early 60's was great (1961 particularly).

Flairs eh?
Blimey, did I have some SERIOUS FLARES. They had to be so long and so wide your feet were totally invisible.
And to go with those (although you couldnt see much of them) was the "clowns" shoes. They were the height of fashion before stack soles and heels. They were just like normal shoes, except that at the front, where your toes were, they bulged upwards to form a peak or bump. The higher and sillier the better. I had a pair that you could have had a party inside. Our parents must have thought we were mad.
And to cap it off, huge rounded shirt collars in either lime green or pink paisley. To get an idea of what they looked like, just watch any programme with Harry Hill in it - but imagine even bigger.
And.................suit lapels that you could make a pair of curtains from and still have some material left over.

Remember children, this stuff all comes back to bite you on the bum. When you get your favourite boot cut jeans out remember they are the bustard ofspring of the bell bottom.
