September 1988 Fashion Etc.: Fishing, Jean Jodhpurs & Unnecessary Accessories

Start listening

We’re dealing with the fashion, beauty, and magazine-y topics of the September 1988 issue, and not dealing with them well because the editors have given us so much to yell about! Which garments are not safe to wear in a creek, or without pants? Why would anyone hike their giant pants up so high? WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO YOUR DAD’S OLD JEANS?! We also look at the cold war between surfers and skateboarders (???); what’s new in shoes, socks, and hair removal; new ads; Sassy Club; and why Neill gets rave reviews for…doing his actual job. Take off that NAPOLEON HAT and listen!
