Shell Suits, Comment by Admiral Ackbar on May 28, 2016 - Report this comment
Shell suits are amazing! It's such a pity they have a negative stigma about them; I won't wear one out anymore incase people think that A) I'm a scally, or B) I'm trying too hard to be ironic. They're sooo comfy and girls look hot in them!
Half-Shirt Muscle Shirts, Comment by Jim on May 28, 2016 - Report this comment
I have worn half shirts and love the looks I got from girls admiring my innie bellybutton. Let's dispel this notion that a guy that shows off his belly button is gay.
Little Folks Shop, Comment by Scott on May 28, 2016 - Report this comment
Something clicked in my mind today and I thought of The Little Folk Shop from the 1970's so here I am: mom would take me to the store at Pico & Westwood Blvd in West LA, now the site of the Westside Pavilion. What I recall most about the store is the maze-like climbing structure for us kids that seemed to go throughout the store, with ladders that would lead to fort-like enclosures where kids could pretend and dream. And I think I even recall the changing room "trees" referred to above.

@Goran - You're not the only one to wear them and they'll NEVER go out of fashion. --- People pretend to hate them because they're that GOOD! Shell-Suiters will have the last laugh.
IOU Clothing, Comment by Billy Worth on May 26, 2016 - Report this comment
I will never forget I.O.U. clothing! I was an I.O.U. freak back in the day... I had the jeans, the sweatshirts even the rare and expensive long sleeve silk shirts. I even had a crazy expensive $300 black and white leather I.O.U. jacket that I wore everywhere. Friday and Saturday nights at the mall were the best!

I was 13 when half shirts became popular and to this day I still wear them wherever I go. People compliment me on my innie bellybutton and abs but guys don't need to have abs to wear crop tops. I like to wear them because they let my bellybutton breathe and it feels nice to expose skin without being shirtless. Guys really need to start wearing more crop tops.
