Subject: God! Rolled pants are back??!!?

Written By: 80s child on 12/07/98 at 10:28 p.m.

I was looking at Eaton's new advertisements (Canada) and there were many guys and girls with the end of their jeans rolled up like in the 80s. The only difference between this new trend and the old one is that the roll is done only once instead of rolling twice and it is bigger. This is not the first time I see this! Is it a new trend? What do you think?

I was never a fan of cuffing my jeans back in the '80's, but I would welcome the trend back with open arms, as anything is better than the hanging-off-the-ass wear that kids have been wearing for the past decade!!! I've seen teens wearing cuffed jeans at the mall as well. I was at a festival recently, and there were a group of kids that were spray painting their hair pink, green and blue from a can... Ahh... the memories that conjured up for me!!!

Gawd!! A guy in my office has been doing the roll-up thing for months. Don't think it had anything to do with trends though.
I know the ads you're talking about. Hated the look back then....hate it now.
Now...the Flashdance look...well, actually, I hated that too. But, the Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go....hmmmmm, nope, not that either.
Well, I'm sure there's a good 80's look. I love the 80.

I think we're safe just as long as any Michael Jackson inspired look(s) do not return to haunt us. I'm still betting that the Flock of Seagulls look return in a couple of years. Still better than any of this current scuzzy 70s look. Actually, anything of the 80s would be better than that.

Speaking of the 'Gulls, I saw The Wedding Singer for the first time last night. Laughed throughout, especially at the airline counter guy with the Flock haircut ("George" was a riot too).
