    Two guys in very colorful clothing, one wearing tight leather pants, looking at each other with cigars sticking out of their mouths...not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Thank you, Edmorel, for being honest. I rather suspected that you might appreciate a few of these garments. To be frank, I don't think some of them look THAT different from what posters who enjoy bright or even 'loud' colors would wear. We've had mention of tangerine or pink trousers. If you enjoy color, what's so wrong with picture no. four?

    The two guys in the last pic seem to have something other than clothes on their minds.
    They just "finished" up...

    Pictures number 4 and 5 are outfits that I would wear except for the shirts.

    Thank you. I can see you in those ensembles. I think they'd be right for a number of the posters here, who say that they enjoy color. Agree as well that the shirts are over the top, under the circumstances.

    Man, I wish I had that energy and vigor when I finished. I usually just want a hot sandwich, a cold drink and a nice nap afterwards.

    ...misty water-colored meeeeeemorieeeees
    of the way we weeerrrrrre...
    the waaay weeeee werrrrrrrrrre!


    This is just not how I remember the '80s. In my recollection, they were much more sartorially subdued. "Preppy" was big, of course, but even that looked more toned down than the above.

    I remember this look. My junior high and high school years were full of blinding color (some of it was on me).

    This is really 1980? because I would not have placed this any earlier than 1983. I would have probably guessed 1985. GQ is surprising
