Comments: The Nightmare That Was “His & Her” Fashions

Once he put on that silly outfit the relationship was doomed. She drove that scooter right up his silly ass.

Gerard, did you have to dredge this out of the memory swamp? I thought I had forgotten about His & Her fashions, but, alas, now I remember them only too well.

When I was stationed on Oahu in the late '80s, it was a "thing" for some tourist couples (usually of retirement age) to get matching muu muu and aloha shirts sets.

My tears fall into my beer for these poor men. They have offed themselves by now knowing there is no forgiveness for such offenses.

So,who doesn't want a matching crocheted vest-shorty-grass-skirt? Ok,no one. But there's some cultural appropriation going on here. Bantu? Hawaiian?

I never say any of this except in pictures, usually the kind that OldFert mentions. And, I was a mddle aged family man when most here were being potty trained,or younger. I guess I lived and worked in the wrong places and at the wrong jobs.

@nori. Appropriated smelly hippie leather fringe vests by people who took baths.

Not long ago I saw a couple pedaling down Coast Highway on their tandem. They wore matching *brightly* colored spandex bike suits. I had to wonder- which one of them thought the matching outfits were a good idea, and which one was forced to go along with it?

Surely you jest.

The guy looks totally gay.
That said, I'd have paid money to see him operate a BBQ wearing that thing.

Ah, the Seventies. The days when everyone looked like they were dressed by their mom.

I have also seen the His & Her matched crocheted-together beer can vests, usually at highway rest stops and tourist traps as they take a break from their Harley trike. Spent all their money on the iron and now they don't have enough left over for a good set of leathers?

Dude's a chick, got's bigger cans than the girl. A fine example of pre-Photoshop cut-n-paste ad copy.

In all my years of knitting etc, etc, I have never seen a man actually wear any of that shiite they used to design for them in the mags and design books. Thankfully.
