Oh the collars! Oh the lapels!

Marz is doing full-immersion fandom on Starsky and Hutch, including shopping for 70's clothes in thrift stores, which is a proving hard––the fashions of that decade are not back in style (...yet? ...ever?).

I'm not watching the show myself, but from the corner of my eye I see enough to trigger memories. Mostly fun ones, luckily.

And the boys are very lovey-dovey together, which is also fun.

O tempora! O modi! *

* A Latin pun (I hope--my Latin is rusty), from Cicero's lament, "Oh the times! Oh the morals!" (O tempora o mores) to "Oh the times! Oh the fashions!"

My memory of clothes of that era is that they were hardly made to last. My SIL handed some of her nylon and doubleknits to me, for which I was grateful since I had so few clothes. But I pretty much used up what little wear was left in 'em.

ZHOEN: I do seem to recall those polyster wonders were held together with flimsy seams... :)
