    Hey,

    Since we're all well dressed now I'm curious what did we all wear in high school?

    Or if you're still in high school...

    I wore alot of Abercrombie and Fitch, especially cargo pants, button down shirts, and sweaters.

    I have donated most of my Abercrombie clothing, and my few pieces remaining barely ever see the light of day.

    During school: Mandatory school uniforms, i.e. khakis and navy or white polos.

    Out of school: khakis and polos in other colors, maybe the occasional generic punk/ska band t-shirt or one of the many t-shirts acquired from school activities or sporting events.

    For shoes, I almost always some type of Vans sneakers.

    First half: I dressed like a loser. Bad cheap shirts and jeans.

    Second half: The ultimate surfer boy...despite the fact I live in northern Canada.

    Thank God for university.

    My clothing styles haven't changed since middle school.

    I recall wearing blue suede and white spectators in elementary school.

    gray scrub pants, ancient tee shirts, sandals in summer, old sneakers the rest of the year, a few home made sweaters and a few sweatshirts. Shaved head. I was trying to achieve a sort of zen monk kind of affect. also, I was dirt poor, and this was economical.


    I remember reading an article a few years ago, that the kids who dressed the most radically in high school had the best understanding of status and the relationship between status and dress, and basically dressed down as a reaction, and later in life were the best (or at least most formally) dressed. I thought that that was very interesting, and rang true.

    Uniform. In the late 1960's at my high school that meant black pants, white or blue shirt, navy blazer, blue and gold striped tie, black socks and shoes. But that changed radically as we rushed headlong toward the 1970's. We were allowed to wear other sorts of ties, first. Then it degenerated and even pants and shirts could be different. Only the blue blazer remained untouched.

    pretty much the same I wear now for leisure...

    jeans or khakis, Polo RL poloshirt or button-down-shirt, brougues, loafers or boatshoes (age: 15-19, in Germany you finish secondary school at the age of 19)
    before that I had a phase where I only wore skater-clothing (age: 12-15)

    One or two sizes too large t-shirts, baggy pants, a visor (*bows head in shame*) and a bad haircut.

    Indeed. Those were the days.

    How very glad I am that they're over!

    A lot of Marc Jacobs, Varvatos, Jil Sander, Dolce, and Prada, with some Paul Smith, Helmut Lang, Exte, Ferre, and Boss mixed in. Some of it, mainly MJ and JS is still very wearable. I still stick to those two.

    My later high school days 85-7 don't look too different from today

    usually wore:

    band tshirt, Fred Perry polo or Ben Sherman buttondown shirts
    Levis 501
    10 hole Docs with white laces
    Levis denim jacket or flight jacket
    Argyle sweaters

    biggest difference is my hair was a #1 crop back then
