    [​IMG] [​IMG] I think I was the first kid with a pager in high school (it was a small school). That sweatshirt might as well have been Kiton because I paid through the nose for it and then wore it constantly. [​IMG] 12th grade graduation... I'm pretty sure that's my dad's Gucci tie [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Splendid. This picture was like getting in a time machine for me.

    For future reference, I think those jeans shout be quoted for what we mean by 'drape'.

    I was at college and doing neo-regency. The go to was a 3/4 lenght black suit jacket, with all saints wool flares in a beigey colour with overcheck and a really beautiful jacquard shirt. I was steampunk before it was a meme. Only wish I could get away with is now without looking like a twat. I used to wear it at work FFS.

    I've definitely taken a more serious approach to my daily style over these past ten years. I've been wearing suits atleast 5 days per week for the last 30+ years. Ten years ago the suits were definitely a couple steps down in quality though. Don't ask about the shoes... I'm too embarassed to admit what I was wearing on my feet. :cry:

    BUMP, per Spoo's request

    Cousin's wedding, 1994. I caught the garter and was drunk enough to think that wearing it on my head was a good idea.

    [​IMG]

    I think this is third grade.

    [​IMG]

    Freshman (high school) homecoming dance, 1984. DB tweed, burgundy knit tie, collar bar, and charcoal flannels. I'm afraid those might be tassel loafers, though. I'd happily rock most of this today if it still fit.

    [​IMG]

    Green polyester suit. Unfortunately, not with the brown floral poly shirt...

    [​IMG]

    My godmother's wedding. Dig the brown, man. I'm second from the right.

    [​IMG]

    I'm on the left. Someone's wedding. My mom was apparently close enough to the woman getting married that my brother and I were asked to be in it, but she can't remember who the bride was!

    Trad wear as interpreted circa 1982. We called it 'preppy' back then. I'm on the left in 'ye old pink striped polo. How anyone managed to photograph me during a moment when the collar wasn't popped is beyond me!

    As I recall pink in all forms was considered particularly 'preppy' at the time.

    [​IMG]

    Me during the original 'Mad Men Era'. I'm the littlest one on the left. Do please notice that I have not only been thoroughly schooled in the 'Robot Pose' but I also hail from a family with a long and lusterous heritage of same.

    Still Looking for some mid to late 80's hair shots. Think 'Flock of Seagulls'. UGH!

    Also still looking for 10 years ago - but it's not so much different from today.
