Bugle Boy “New Wave” Clothing from 1984 aka OMG Thirty-Four!

I must confess when I came across this video via a post on Disqus, it brought some memories flooding back that I hadn’t thought of in – literally – ages.

The clothes, the music, the friends and fun. Such good times.

People and places my thoughts haven’t gone to for…

wait a minute!  2018 minus 1984 equals 34!

Yes um….double check the math….yep it is…

OMG THIRTY-FOUR!!!

3 and 4

three decades plus 4

THUR-TEE-FOUR

You can’t be serious!   34 years ago?!  The number itself triggers a wave of anxiety in my ongoing struggle to not freak out!  The panic, the turmoil, the existential crisis I face when I try calmly to consider facts.  Basic facts everyone else around me deals with too as we all “get older”   And they all seem fine.

But me, I’m having a hell of a time with it as I’m officially over-the-hill.  Over-the-hill and beginning my descent toward the inevitable.   Careening with ever-increasing speed toward the Grim Reaper

Many, many years and decades are behind me at this point in my life.  And fewer and fewer are, statistically, going to be in my future.

I know this because I can do math.

And it’s very noticeable when I look in the mirror.

And I’m older than 80% of all the males in the United States.

Oh, and I get alot of stuff from AARP, but anyway….

Enjoy this peek at 1984 fashion.   Nineteen Eighty-Four!  NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR!!

100 Years of American Men’s Fashion In Pictures

 

We start in 1915, the dawn of the automobile age, when driving coats and flat caps were popular.

 

By 1985, men’s fashion had gone off the rails. Mullets, pastels, and leisure suits dominated the decade.

Seeing the menswear looks of the day from the past 100 years, it’s clear that men’s fashion is not all that cyclical.
