They were actually made from parachute material and felt good to wear. (Okay, really good.) You could not put keys or a wallet in them because that would ruin the effect of wearing them in the first place, but not having money and being locked out of your house was a small price to pay for fashion.
Listen, I'm not one to tell a person what to do (yes, I am ”” I totally am), but you really should not be allowed to wear this shirt unless it is unbuttoned to the naval and you have the chest hair growth equivalent of Bigfoot. That's just good fashion sense.
Wearing not one, not two, but three Swatch watches on the same wrist meant you were at the pinnacle of '80s fashion. Ahhh, the '80s...when going way overboard on even the most trivial of things was par for the course.
In the '90s, it was a county, state and federal law that you had to wear a vest with at least 83.7% of your wardrobe. Failure to do so could result in a $50.00 fine and having your hair gel privileges temporarily restricted.
Though in the '80s you could get a Miami Vice suit in virtually any mall in America, it was still a really hard look to pull off properly. Not all of us could look as cool as Donny J and P-to-the-M-to-the-T. (Those are my personal nicknames for these two. I am the only one allowed to call them that.)
