Can you remember...

... the shellsuit?

I still have photos of me at school on 'own clothes day', (as we wore a uniform) fashioning my shiny shellsuit with a smug look on my face.

What on earth were we thinking?

Indeed what on earth were you thinking? Are you a scouser?
Just a well-read punk peasant

Going to church makes you a christian as much as standing in a garage makes you a car!

LOL - I had forgotten about the Harry Enfield scouser gag!

I remember a brief moment when I thought they were cool.  Happily, the moment didn't last as long as it took me to save the money for one!

I had to look it up - we must have called it something different. Glad I never owned one!

A horrid brown one-piece zip-up-the-front corduroy jumpsuit though...  :-\
It's good to laugh at yourself once in a while - why let everyone else have all the fun!

We never had non-uniform days.
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Had to look it up as I never heard the term, they were "leisure suits" or track suits on this side of the pond.

Still popular attire in Florida retirement communities, or so I'm told.
