why'd you come in here lookin' like that?

I cleaned out my closet. Fortunately for me, I am not now and never was one to buy something really trendy. I've always gone for the classic look, but you can go wrong with classic articles of clothing, too. The evidence of that is here below...

This photo does not do these jeans justice. The pair on the left, the dark denim, were from American Eagle. I never wore them. Why? Well, look at them. And they didn't have pockets in the back. A major no-no for me. Not sure why I bought them. The pair on right had a twin pair of jeans. Identical. I bought two pair of the same jeans on the same day. Both from Abercrombie & Fitch. Getcha sum of that! The holes came in the jeans. Classy.



This hot little number is from the Gap Fall Collection circa 1997. I know for a fact I bought this before the new Millennium and I can guarantee it has not been worn since I stepped out of the halls of Russellville High School (looks like I did learn something there). You can't tell from the picture, but it's like faux silk.



Are you liking what you see? Purchased this doozie from the Gap my freshman year in college. Wore it once (for real) and maybe a few other times as a joke. Notice the pearl snaps, please.




Four words: pink cargo parachute pants. A whole sentence: Who let me get out of the store with those?



Look closely. Closer. Yes, that's a FAKE polo.




I told my parents I needed a dress coat. This is what I bought. Apparently, I thought I was a male in 1984 who needed a "dress" coat. I have no recollection of ever actually wearing this anywhere.

That picture of the "dress" coat almost made me pee in my pants! I really wish you would wear that this winter.
