That was probably my most fashionably creative time. I'm still amazed at how many good sneakers you can find at thrift stores, I guess that's why I would always see homeless doods in NY rockin Jordans.
First of all, really like the fit of the R45RPM jeans and the Visvims. That is the first time I've seen Visvims worn in a way that makes me think "Hmmm... maybe I should buy a pair."
As for the above... and now even your flannel shirt is 45RPM
Reading your post reminds me of what I wore and how I shopped 10 to 12 years ago, in college! I am looking at what I am wearing today (usual stuff, all posted here before, in a different combination,) and I am pretty sure that the 20 year old me would kick the present day, 32 year old me in the ass. He would actually probably beat me senseless. The youth of yesterday. So angry. Damn that rap music.
