Early life up here, 80s, it was cords (urgh) and trackies I think.

Moved away and i don't think I wore anything but shorts for several years.

early 90s, baggy cargo pants and flanno, then it was jeans all the way, haven't been out of them since.... but I never double denimmed :lol:

 

 

 

What long trousers do you wear smoggy. Not slacks? Surely not..... chinos????

 

 

 

Its whatever country road or cotton on sell these days :D

I have you down as an Aaaaatttt Lowes man :D

******* hell mate

 

 

(I suspect that the minute my black hoody, which I bought from Lowes on George St during the Olympics and I still wear around the house, needs a wash, it is going to be thrown in the bin :( )

If talking about fave pair prob the ones that i went around Europe in my late teens. Massive rip in one knee and frayed bottoms with random burn marks. They went with the skint art school drop out look that drove my old man mad. 'Throw those bloody trousers in the bin and get a ******* hair cut' :D

I have seen deliberately weathered jeans like this that people buy as new :D

Blue jeans will have their come back. You just dont see people in them like you used to.

What the ****?

I didn't know they were out and wear them every weekend to the Towers. 

You're saying people are laughing at me? Well, **** me. That's cruel. Why didn't you warn me earlier?

I've kept two stonewash leather jackets in my wardrobe for over 25 years, all the time telling the ex that they will one day come back into fashion and I'll save myself a fortune. She always laughs at me. I beg to differ. :)

Jeans are nostalgia. Not worn jeans for a few years.

The double denim look was vastly underrated i find....a nice blue denim jacket with blue denim jeans :D Never out of fashion in the upper mountains probably..the fashion a serial killer goes to work in....

Isn't double denim called a Canuck tuxedo?

Gosh, this brings me back memories. I was about 7-8 years old when this used to be on. 

I always thought this was Shaun Micallef's best performance of Milo Kerrigan, you have to give it to Kitty Flanaghan for trying her best to not laughing during that performance as well:

Nostalgia eh....

As a kid in the 80's every mate on the 'estate' had a zx spectrum it seemed, I dropped hints for at least 6 months  that I wanted a zx spectrum, like 'Dad I want a zx spectrum for my birthday' 

See the source imageSo imagine my feeling when I get my present on my birthday and get this ....

See the source image

In case you are wondering this beige beauty is an 'Acorn Electron'! The main thing I can remember is my two older sister sniggering in the background and my old man calling me an 'ungrateful sod',,,,,,,

The reason I am posting this as during the last communication they said they have had a clear out and asked me if I wanted to keep it, daft ****ers :D They could stick it up their arse sideways back then and can now.

I had an Electron too it had some ace games 

- Elite

- Repton 

- Eddie Kidd’s Jump Challenge

it was the cut down cheaper version of the BBC Model B which only the crazy well off families could afford 

All my mates had spectrums So played plenty of 

Manic Miner

Jet Set Willy

Day Thompson’s Decathalon
 

This BBC telemovie is worth a watch for pure British 80s geek value 

Shows the rise and fall of both Acorn and Sinclair

The middle class family and schools computer the BBC v Working Class Kids ZX Spectrum 

We emigrated to Australia and I brought my Electron over, of course no one had ever seen one here, so had to get games sent from UK.  Everyone here had commodore 64s

I won many an ashes series against my mates playing as England in Arnie Armchairs  Cricket 
 

 

the magnificent sound of the theme tune when you won, could be so cruel and mocking when you lost

Holy crap mate at least yours called.

My dad chucked out the Commodore 64 in a council collection without asking!

 

Your story reminds me though of when I asked for a cricket bat for christmas. Under the tree, there it was, rip off the wrapping... .what the **** is this ****? A SHANE WARNE bat???????? How can I possibly be taken seriously with this?????? Haha.

 

No joke I can still remember Dad justifying it ("he sometimes has a good knock on the right day"), like he hadn't got it because it was dirt cheap.
