Polyester Misuse indeed. That is my #1, but jumpsuits and ponchos would be on the list, along with leisure suits with collar points reaching halfway down the chest.

Frankly, however, I hate the long baggy shorts of today.

1. Platform shoes--responsible for both broken ankles and cork shortages.

2. Farrah Fawcett's hairdo--it looked great on Farrah, for us mere mortals, not so much.

3. String bikinis--say no more.

4. Polyester that collected snags and lint and looked ten years old after two washings.

5. The "sensitive man" look with shaggy hair and beard. Cf., Kris Kristofferson, Dan Fogelberg, Jon Voigt, et. al.

I'm not sure the current "looks" are any improvement, though.

Current looks that suck:

1. sleeve tattoos ('nuff said)
2. pierced lips and eyebrows
3. hipster hats and scraggly bears and Buddy Holly glasses

Well, scraggly bears are no treat, either.
