It’s official. The 90s revival has gone viral. Try saying that with a mint imperial in your mouth.
Let’s face it, the whole thing was brewing ages ago but to include ‘1993’ in the name of something that looks pure 1993 pretty much puts a tin hat on it, whatever putting a tin hat on things actually means.
This is the kind of thing I’d have worn while sanding down a skateboard deck during my brief but memorable period of being ‘into skateboards’. It’s the kind of thing I’d have worn with the sleeves rolled up as I feverishly dug through massive bins full of cut price adidas sportswear at the local outlet. It’s the kind of thing I’d have worn while draped over a camping chair in Cornwall while on a trailer tent holiday, as was the style in those heady early 90s days. It’s the kind of thing I’d have worn while posing with the dog in front of the gas fire, just after having a Sunday night bath. It’s the kind of thing I’d have worn while cowering in the doorway of Direct Seconds on Castle Street as post match dust ups rumbled by me.
And today, what kind of thing would I do while wearing it? I’m not sure I can pull it off you know. But it’s nice to reminisce isn’t it?
