Dad… What are you wearing? Jean jackets, ripped, tight pants and boots are so 1987. You shouldn’t go out in public like that.”
– My Daughter, Circa 2006
Look who’s fashionable now? I might not fit in those pants anymore, but I fit in everywhere else. Clothes aren’t the only thing that have come full circle lately. Synthesizers, hair spray, eyeliner and big guitars are totally rad and are here to stay.
