    They both look like serious troublemakers. Especially your mom.

    I have 2 sisters. At Christmas time our sister in law used to buy each of us a different (but same type) sweater. We always knew what was going to be unwrapped and snickered at each other knowing what the results were going to be. Needless to say we had years of unused sweaters in our drawers! She meant well, I guess.

    I’m almost positive that’s a Sears catalogue sweater. There’s a red version too.

    He looks like a Walmart brand Tom Cruise.

    His acid wash jeans were probably in the wash.

    For those of you who did not live through the 80s, there were hardly any normal clothes in the stores. It was very difficult to get through the decade without clothing and haircuts that didn’t scream “I AM NOW LIVING IN THE 1980s”. That may be true of all decades, but the volume was turned up in that decade.

    He looks like the villain in a John Hughes movie – and I mean that as a compliment

    I miss 80s sweaters. I regret nothing from the 80s.

    Dude has no sense of style. Those swearers were to be worn with a turtleneck underneath and your gold chain outside the turtleneck.

    Extra points for a mullet and lowered minitruck.

    That’s so much of what I remember about the 80s. And the hair. Floral prints were huge then as well…as you can see. Good looking couple.

    I used to look back on the fashion choices of the 70s and shake my head. Now I look back at the fashions of the 80s and realize I wore this stuff, and I shake my head.

    Sweaters like that were popular because Bill Cosby wore sweaters like that on the Cosby Show.
