Members Only Jackets – Are You a Member?

Members Only Advertising Tagline: “When you put it on, something happens.” Indeed. This tagline was so great that it got co-opted in the early 1990s and used by various condom makers. Nice. Check out the magazine ad below featuring this tagline.  Something definitely looks like it’s going to happen for that trio, especially Shades in the middle. Anyway, back to the jackets. If you grew up in the 80s, you either had a...

A Skinny Tie Seemed Like a Good Idea in 1985

As a junior high student in the middle-1980s I knew very little about fashion.
