The odds of someone on SF admitting to having owned bell-bottoms is slim to none, but I'd really love to see this. :D

Here are the rules, iGents.


1. Pick any decade from the 1900's and put together an ensemble that defines its quintessential/stereotypical style.


2. Make sure to note what decade you are going with in your FC submission post. An inspirational pic would be nice, but is not required.


3. Don't just put together some kind of "timeless


Mid 1970's. Channeling my dad, I guess. No rule mentioned it had to be from this week. This is from a couple of years ago.

Dad's jacket from Vietnam. What he needed a jacket for at Udorn I'll never know. He wore it pretty consistently through the 70s and 80s as well as a bit into the 90s. I wore it heavily in college and when I was living in South Korea. Shows no signs of wear after more than half a century of heavy use.
