Mine goes back to Hilfiger, Polo, Timberland, Nike, Girbaud, Levi's, etc.

Many older members know how precious this is. Some younger member might not relate. Still younger members might be in this period of their lives. What's yours?

Girbaud jeans, rolled and pinned tightly at the ankle. Bolo ties. Double breasted suit jackets that ended at the waist.

Excuse me now, I need to take a cold shower.

ah man. I once stole a waterproof (yellow case) Walkman from a fellow student. Wonder what he's doing now? Anyway, I remember when they made Walkmans smaller than tha tapes they played. Huge.

Corduroy pants, hemp necklace, birkenstocks. My favorite t-shirt was either my Phish Fall 95 tour shirt, or the shirt with the Maxell logo I got with the UPCs from the hundreds of blank tapes I bought.

It was a big mix, from my punk years (slim denim, steel-toed boots, leather jacket), to a little more toned down in my senior year.

Big items/brands that I remember? Probably not that different than today, but...

Cargo Pants and shorts
Polo
Abercrombie and Fitch
Aeropostale
FuBu
American Eagle
Puma
Those big beaded chokers that guys would wear
bleached hair on dudes
lacrosse lanyards
shaggy lacrosse hair
huge skate shoes
Oakley sunglasses

I didn't have the balls to wear white 501s. Literally.
