T-shirts with Fido Dido on the front.


Still worn on people in French and Italian secondary school textbooks to this day.

A backpack is still a backpack if it hangs from your shoulder.

Koteka, Namba and Horim. Or Lonka Lonka for when it's hot and dry.

Users of this forum are unlikely to need a Kynodesme, though.

Seen a few of those t-shirts people used to have printed for stag/hen weekends in charity shops - can't believe they haven't been claimed as hipster attire yet.

Yes this. I have tried getting on with 'skinny' jeans really i have, but boot cut are about a billion times more comfortable to put on or take off.

My feet are so freakly shaped they just do not fit down normal size trousers.

EDIT: my last set of boot cut jeans are getting frayed and IDK where to buy more, so I bought a pair of 'straight cut' tracksuit bottoms. They seem to pass me feet as well as the jeans. If i cant buy another pair of jeans like this i will buy some more traccy bottoms.

I hope those pinstripe suit jackets with an eighties hair metal band name ironically stenciled on the back never get revived.

Pop Swatches. Between the nostalgia cycle and wearable tech being a supposedly exciting development, I'd have thought someone would have made a Smart Watch that also stretches out part of your shirt.

I expected snuff, or even that strange tobacco mini-teabag that they use in Scandinavia, to take off after the smoking ban. Never happened as far as I'm aware, the only pub I know that sells snuff behind the bar is resolutely old-fashioned, and not in a trendy way either.

Loads of people I know use Snus and snuff, one guy who's never smoked in his life uses it. One guy I knew passed out first time using Snus.

Dunno how widespread these were but in our school in the 70s, Solatios, (“slates”) were the shoes to wear (with your massively wide side-pocket trousers).

I'm still hoping for codpiece and hose. There seems to be a slight revival of cargo pants this year, but they're all really tight - bring back proper 90s baggy combat trousers, just don't put the entire contents of your house in the pockets.

Most of the items mentioned here have been actively pushed recently. I've definitely seen bootcut jeans advertised, although the cool alternative youth seem to prefer baggy jeans that are all holes. ASOS has been selling men's dungarees for a few years, but I don't think men can be arsed undressing for the toilet.

Apparently yellow and grey are the colours of 2021. Which is not great.

Pipe smoking was a bit of a niche almost cool thing a few tears ago wasnt it? Steam punk if you're feeling generous, chap-hop if you're not.

I can promise you I don't know any steam punkers.

Steam punk is weird isn't it. Goths, moshers, scallys I can understand. Steam punk, yeah I'm just going to pretend I've invented a steam powered spaceship, don't get it mate
