Here's one thing I won't miss from the '80s ... Jams

Jams. It's been 30 years and I'd wiped them from my memory. But my good friend over at just HAD to put this photo on Facebook today.

Eighties fashion? I don't miss it quite so much. Oh sure. I miss the tight jeans, combs in the back pocket, maybe even the navy-blue cords with a Journey concert jersey. But all the fashion based on surfing culture? Yeesh. Ocean Pacific didn't look good on me then. It'd be comical on me now. I lived in simplier times in simplier clothes. Give me anything from Lisa Birnbach's Official Preppy Handbook. (I actually had a chat with her on Twitter recently!)

That being said, if someone buys me these Jams, I swear I'll wear them to work and allow photo ops.
