So, you and Swimmy are related?
Yeah, I wore some “fancy” shit too, and still struck out a lot.
I remember a family gathering in the late 80s I think, where Aunts & Uncles were lamenting fashion trends. I offered up that some designer jeans were pre-shredded and cost over $100. My great Aunt snorted in ridiculous disbelief. I’ll bet Lourdes jeans here are 10 times that. They probably resemble a mop after a wash.
I wore those original cords. The ones when they got wet weighted a ton. Had my hair cut into a Princeton Hair cut. That was about as hip as I was. I was a quiet one is High School I tried to be invisible.
