Yes, of course. Just as those of us who don't wear bright colors will likely remember this period of time through more subdued images than will those who use color often, in their wardrobes.

Weren't 3-D glasses popular then?

kinda ruins it for people who remembers the 80s fondly, eh?

When it comes to clothes, no one remembers the 1980s fondly.

. . . be careful, or I'll post photos of these models, in their leather shorts. And I do mean . . . SHORTS. When I was in college, the young men wore cut off jeans so brief, that today they'd be considered indecent. At the time, it was cool.

I've got GQ magazines from the 70'S, too. They're great.

I remember looking at the newsstands just a few years later, and noticing that all of a sudden, GQ had gone hetero.

I was sad.

Inspired by this article and Miami Vice season 1, just bought a pair of light blue cotton pants.

Now I only need to find myself a nice pink polo and white blazer...and I shouldn't forget the moccasins.
