Bootcut bootcut and thrice bootcut.  Let John Cooper Clarke get on with his own thing and the rest of us can enjoy the breeze.

I keep reading stuff at the moment about how Gen Z are now mocking millennials for our love of skinny jeans and side-parted hair. The skinny jeans I can sort of understand, as they're definitely synonymous with a particular generation and they did become a bit of a uniform (though apparently the rationale behind the scorn is that they're not inclusive of diverse body shapes - whereas I'd argue that fitted, stretchy jeans can actually be quite flattering on fuller figures).

But side partings? That seems like such an inoffensive thing to target, it's just quite a universally flattering hairstyle on most face shapes and hair types. I guess all the kids have centre parts these days then? Hard to pull off unless you've got very symmetrical features.

Pretty much anything which was fashionable in the 90s-to-early-00s has been having a resurgence for some time now, though (the majority of listings on fashion reseller site Depop seem to have #Y2K hashtags) - the cynical view would be that's because the people now in charge of dictating trends are of a generation where that's what was trendy when they were young, but I dunno, I guess everything just goes in circles inevitably.

No need to bring Him into this. Far too hot in Jerusalem for skinny jeans anyway.

A fashion that's still waiting to be "in".

I think it's fair to say a charismatic Palestinian man from the first century was probably extremely attractive, albeit not very in tune with Gen Z tastes.

Skinny jeans with long pointy shoes (on men) was the other awful 00s fashion. Also, early skinny jeans weren't made of super-stretchy fabric, you had to wrestle them on and then they fell down in five minutes. I have bizarrely seen an attempt at reviving these, because people like to suffer for fashion.

As bad as tight suit trousers, tight t shirt and stupid chunky orthopaedic looking trainers, with no socks.

I have one. i only bought it about three years ago. In a great shop called Rowells in Long Eaton. Which has now sadly shut. A bit tight but it fits. Edwyn and Jarvis have been seen wearing them in the past. I had one in my 20s as well. I'm a fan. Think they're dead cool.

How about star jumpers? I really wanted one as a kid but didn't get one until they'd been out of fashion for at least a year. That was my mum's way. If I wanted a specific item of clothing she would wait until the sales. Not the first sales, when the trendy kids had stopped wearing them and the less cool kids had them bought by their mums, but the second sales when even the uncool kids had stopped wearing them. On the exact day when nobody was wearing something, my mum would buy me it. You could time it to the second.

Well either that, or she would buy me something that looked vaguely like what I wanted but wasn't. And then say 'nobody will notice' if I complained. Which made me wonder if she'd actually experienced childhood herself. Like my faux-Adidas t-shirt with two stripes, a v-neck and no badge. I mean, I liked that t-shirt but...

The concept of stuff going out of fashion annoys me, because the people who decide it's shit are the same ones who said it was good in the first place.

I was going to post a pic of Bill Oddie wearing wide trousers from an episode of The Goodies but the only image I could source was low quality and looked like ass, so here's this instead...

At some point in the 70s he caught an unusual form of crabs from one of his teenage groupies that made him walk like one. It's a little known fact that Bowie could only walk sideways from this point on. Any footage showing him walking conventionally (i.e. frontways) was doctored.

Brown shirts

The colour brown in general. All over the place in the 70's. Cars, suits, shirts, ties, trousers.

I barely had any energy left, but joined in with their protestations, naked at that point, save for the one good sock.

This reminds me of the Saatchi & Saatchi campaign for Sagatiba featuring LEGEND JESUS

Was thinking more about the 1930’s to be honest.

Turn-ups

A fashion that's still waiting to be "in".

I remember in about 1989 my mom couldn’t be bothered turning up my far-too-long jeans so she simply told me it was fashionable to turn them up. I went round looking like I was in Slade. I was an incredibly stupid child.
