The one where I feel old

I realized recently that the high school class of 2008, the incoming frosh at college this fall, were born the year I graduated high school. That certainly made me feel a little old(er). Although it is fun to poke fun at what was considered fashion in the early 80's. How about some awful examples of male (really, mostly gay-male-with-no-taste) fashion from 1986. Check out this post here. There's Adrian Paul modeling long before Highlander. This year's high school graduates probably don't even know who Adrian Paul is.

Oooo, lookit the jeans with pressed creases! And slouchy socks worn outside the pants legs. The best has to be the purple flight suit. For those boyz with a Top Gun fetish.

BTW, when did Top Gun come out? (pause while I search the interweb) Ah-hah, it came out in 1986. No wonder they have a flightsuit in the IM 1986 fashion catalog. The comments to the post above are funny. Then, I read the comment from the woman who said that 1986 was her birth year. Oh, lord.

Hai, I can feelz old now?

I have a son born in 1986. That should make you feel younger.
I was never into guys wearing those slouch socks over their jeans and was very happy my boys were too young to get into those "pretty boy" fashions.

Yep, I know that others older than I am (like DH) are thinking, Oh, be quiet, youngster. :-)

I think I still feel inside like I'm about in my mid-20's. It just blows my mind that at my age, my mom had an 18 year old and a 14 year old.

I never really liked those "pretty boy" fashions.

Wow.... I am a few years younger than you... but still feeling old. Especially when I have a child that started high school today. I mean I am just 21, how can I have a 14 yr old?
