Ah, yes Big Johnson. I remember when those along with the Coed Naked shirts were banned at my high school.
Howabout Jordache, are they still around. I also remember Mossimo being pretty big.
And I recall shirts with various Looney Tunes characters in gangster poses were pretty popular in the 1990s.
Back in the Pleistocene age, Dittos jeans were extremely popular. That would be the 1970s, for you kiddies. They had a particular type of “saddle cut” style of tailoring that was flattering to a girl’s butt, and they came in brushed twill of various colors. So I guess they weren’t jeans at all.
I think I saved a pair for nostalgia’s sake and still have it way in the back of my closet.
Aww, I came in here to mention Dittos, and I thought I was going to make it all the way through the replies without anybody beating me to it!
A few more:
(uh-oh!) Sergio Valente
(ooh la-la!) Sassoon
(I used to have several pairs of designer jeans when I was in early high school–despite the fact that I was a nerdy kid who really had no interest in fashion. I just liked the jeans. And they were comfortable and didn’t look trashy.) The Sassoons were the most comfortable, followed by the Sergios.
Thank you! I was going crazy trying to remember the name. My daughter nagged and nagged until she got a pair of Brittania jeans.
Going farther back (the 50’s), I remember my mom being quite proud of her Pendleton jacket (plaid, could be worn as a shirt, kinda mannish), and later, a London Fog coat. I think London Fog is still around. Not sure about Pendleton.
