Jelly Jacket, Comment by Dave on February 08, 2016 - Report this comment
These were very popular in the early 80s especially. I remember seeing them for sale in all colours at most markets, and also at shops like C&A's around 1981 - 1984. Lots of teenaged girls wore them at this time, and the most popular colours seemed to have been blue or red, and the least popular white or black. They were almost always transparent PVC with a zip and a thick white cord at the bottom, and usually on the hood too. I was at school at the time and quite liked them, but they really were something that only the girls wore. In the eraly 80s transparent PVC raincoats were popular with women in general (especially older women) and most high street shops (discount shops in paticular)sold them in all colours. Most of these were knee length with a draw string hood and a belt, and they usually fastened with poppers. As someone here pointed out, none of these lasted that long and your mum or gran always seemed to be buying a new one because of a tear. They were so cheap that they weren't worth repairing. Again, these were a women's fashion and very few men (except elderly men) seemed to wear plastic raincoats in the 1980s.
Balloon Sneakers, Comment by Countrygirl on February 07, 2016 - Report this comment
I've been looking for them for the past two years, haven't found them. They were the most comfortable shoes I've ever had. If I ever get my hands on where to buy them, I'm getting 5 pairs.
