    Shoes were Airwalk, Adidas Shelltoes, or Sketchers ( [​IMG] ).

    Everything was overly baggy; sweaters, cargo pants, shitty jeans, a few button up shirts, tees. Stuff from American Eagle, Nautica, Structure, Ecko, etc.

    Some of the shirts from American Eagle were sized XL. A properly fitting shirt from there for me would be a S or M.

    Senior year in high school right now.

    In the colder months, I wear sweaters 90% of the time (cashmere, cotton & wool) over shirts. A lot of v-necks, zip ups & cardigans. For bottoms, mostly jeans, chinos and the occasional wool trouser. Brogues, always. You will not see me in school with a pair of sneakers. Most of the sweaters are Brooks Brothers & Banana Republic (good cashmere for the price).

    Warmer months...brightly patterned RL Polo and Brooks Bros. button downs, chinos (colored and khaki), linen/cotton trousers, tan bucks & wingtips. On casual days, it's usually jeans and a polo. Not a big fan of shorts in the summer.

    During the winter, I like to throw on the occasional wool tie under a cardigan or v-neck. Not a single one of my classmates understands me, but it's ok! I was voted best dressed, which (not to brag, seriously) gives me the courage to continue wearing nantucket red pants and the occasional madras shirt.

    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


    This is surprising to me... how old are you? I figured you were in your mid 20's.

    A jacket and tie.


    One of my favorite things about going to a prep school was the uniform. Wearing a jacket and tie while I was young(er, as I'm only 22 now) allowed me to become complete comfortable in more formal attire now. Most people my age have no idea how to tie a tie, nevermind feel comfortable and confident while wearing one.

    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.

    Where did you live? I don't think anybody at my high school could have named any of those brands (including the girls) let alone wore them.

    I wore a lot of Abercrombie, American Eagle, and Quicksilver.

    my guess is only Asians, in Asia, would be that aware of fashion labels that young

    Oversized punk/metal band tees, baggy jeans, docs, and studded belts and braclets. Oh, and a vintage wool overcoat accessorized with black skull cap. Such are the days of our lives... haha

    Jeans, tee shirts and hiking boots. Started wearing plaid flannel shirts during senior year (pre-grunge.) An army surplus Eisenhower jacket in cold weather.

    Not much has changed.

    School uniform: Charcoal grey suit, white or grey shirt and blue/silver/gold repp stripe tie.

    At the time, obviously, we all hated it and the subversive elements of us used to try to get away with black suits, doc martens, tying our ties in a "slim jim" style, and stuff like that. I wish I'd appreciated it more; think what fun we could have had with cufflinks, surgeons cuffs, spread collars and nice shoes.
