I was thinking today...since fashion has become globalized, and we have already recycled the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and now the 90s...all within a span of about 15-20 years...how do we recycle eras that have already been recycled in this era?

my son skateboards in what are effectively 1990's JNCO pants

I think we just keep recycling ad nauseum

I was actually tripping on this the other day.
Mullets came back, my cousin in high school right now has a wicked one.
I was at the skatepark and I had the tightest jeans...I felt like an old man all the kids were in baggy stuff like it was 99'
Almost JNCO level stuff
It's cool when stuff that was kinda cool comes back, but there are some things that need to be left in the past.

The pseudo bell bottom jeans for girls
The high waisted mom jeans only work for certain figures
The tiktok kids rocking the 80s dangly earring look
Kolohe and some wearing the tweaker oakleys from late 90s/early 2000s

Noticing a lot of color on boards again, probably half because the hipster fish segment became mainstream
the other half is everyone riding epoxy and they get yellow in a week.

Polo has certainly gone downhill I have a shirt my dad wore in 91' that is still good. Got a new one for xmas two years ago and it is already fried.

Greg probably seen this 100x over again lol.
