Uh, umm.....1970's leisure suits, floral polyester shirts that almost took flight in a stiff breeze cause the collars were so big...I rocked it as well as any 70's six year old ever did!!!

I wore an achkan made of a brocade type cloth for my 5th birthday. I dont have a pic but my mom probably has the achkan. I try and put up a pic

Pretty good start. The leisure suits came a little later.

Circa '75 or '76.

Shit from Mervyns and JC Penney. Whatever it was, it was always ill-fitting, stiff, and uncomfortable. I vow that my children will not have to endure the same experience. It just makes any "special" occasion not so much.

Yup. I was swaggerific. Story is I picked it up from my mom's or dad's dresser and I wore it every time I dressed up.

No, much worse i am sad to say. Fecal brown coat with Quad safari type pox, and i seem to recall a navy with quad pox, big white buttons and a white belt. Please note that this were picked for me, not by me, the folks wouldnt spring for the Brooks Brother kids fitzgerald. I have however rebounded quite nicely though....
