I bought some desert boots here in Tokyo the other day. As I looked in the mirror wearing them, jeans, and a blue t-shirt with a pocket, I thought ‘oh my god, I’m dressed exactly as was in junior high school (almost 30 years ago)’.
Do you think our popular culture has had a rather extended life? Naturally there will be many icons from any given generation or era that will live forever, but after 30 years it seems there isn’t the gap the probably exists from, for example, the 30’s to the 60’s.
By the way, the desert boots were by Clark and they claimed the were the original. There was nothing original about the price. Ouch.
