The Choice is Yours!


fashion choices

Here you have it gents, 1979 presented you with either the one piece jumpsuit made from lightweight "Poplin" (wasn't that a girls toy line from the eighties?) or the classic double knit polyester leisure suit and fellas, you can get it in lime green or sky blue! I don't think I could make that important decision, I'd just curl up into a ball on the floor of my shag carpeted, walk in closet and rock back and forth....



More of me dept : With the upcoming "Dark Knight" movie now one month away (I'm all pins and needles being more of a DC guy), I wrote a piece for humour site Topless Robot entitled The Top Ten Batman Figures That Make Even Batman & Robin Seem Reasonable that is up today. It's an examination of some of the more strange pieces of apparal Batman has worn in the name of merchandising......

When I worked for mail-order retailer Haband (they advertise in AARP and Sunday's Parade mag alot), we used to sell poplin slacks. I didn't know what it meant then, and I still don't. We used lots of cool fashion materials/terms like poplin, gabardine, pincord, guayaberra, sansabelt, etc.

As for the Batman article - nice job. The RoadRunner line was killer.

Love the Batman article, I wasn't aware of the Slalom Racer Batman, I kinda like that one... anyway tough call on the suits, I guess you could go for one piece comfort for the casual weekends and the two piece for the evenings prowl'en the town!
