Brisbane Times Blogs That was 1995 of course and a mate rummaging through a box of his old VHS gems stumbled across it before deciding to transfer the last few overs, celebration, presentation and news clips onto DVD and grace me with a copy.
It made for spine tingling viewing feeling, once again, how much the whole state was behind that beautiful behemoth. But while the vision of Carl Rackemann taking the Shield winning catch is timeless representing adversity, struggle and ultimately triumph the same can't be said for other scenes. The fashion of the day was clearly ugly! There were just as many crowd angles as there were playing panoramas in this package and 13 years down the track, it almost looks like another planet. This was 1995, and already we've established enough distance to look back and barf. Women's hair was puffy and their frocks a tad frumpy. Fringe cringe was in full purple oakley sunglasses force for the men with boofy sweeps umbrella ing the short back and sides of popular choice. Dress and polo shirts were firmly tucked into the belts of ballooning trousers and that's not to mention facial hair! I'm not sure what was funnier John Buchannan's Ned Flanders inspired moustache or Stuey Law's Miami Vice goatee with chest wig and DK Lillee necklace to match. Out of control, boys! AB also sported the mo but he gets away with it because that's the only way I'll ever remember the great man. In fact, I believe he should re grow it and re brandish the Duncan Fearnley at the same time. Anyway my point is how quickly does fashion ricochet through the revolving doors of time? It doesn't seem that long ago but apart from yobbos equaling yobbos in any era, a retrospective glimpse into 'the look' of 1995 establishes a major changing of the fashionable guard in current terms. As www oakley we frame the typical look of the 80s and have a good old cackle about it, so too the 90s have entered that diabolical domain. The same as what we're wearing now will more than likely become fair game for a cringe or a chuckle in 2021. What statement were you making back in the mid '90s? And are you proud of it? By the way, Queensland premier at the time, Wayne Goss, featured in the after match presentation and the only bloke who looked the same then as he does now was standing right behind him, fringe and all. I didn't follow fashion to much in the 1990s, tending more towards just plain nerdy more than fashion victimhood. However I came up with a few horrors when I did make an effort to look cool. I think my worst crime against fashion was the flanno, jeans (which my mum insisted on ironing and putting a nice crease in), crop top and New York Yankees cap (I didn't even like baseball) with the brim bent in the middle in the obligatory home boy fashion. Oh, and the undercut. Let's not forget the undercut. Then I went to uni in '97 and after a period of boat shoe wearing preppiness, drifted back to just plain daggy. Like that rather odd rugby jersey, ripped jeans, battered riding boots and DrizaBone phase I went through. The only explanation that I can come up with as to why I wasn't publicly ridiculed for this is that you can get away with wearing pretty much anything at UQ without anyone so much as batting an eyelid. I'm told retailers are charging exorbitant prices for flannos these days. Is that right? If it is, that's a real crime. Doc Marten boots with flannelette shirts and jeans (especially flattering on girls.), fluro orange dresses, tights, oversized t shirts, boots and push down scrunch socks. I brought it home to watch and the ads between the show are classics! A Kmart ad shows the "latest" fashions, but funnily enough, it's very similar to what's in fashion now. Well that is an interesting one. Like Nunny, the Parachute tracksuit pants were a hit in the mid 90's, along with the "Hypercolour" t shirt and the Jeans and Joggers look. (Commonly referred to J, J's) inspired my Jerry Seinfeld. When we went to "socials" or school dancers, I can remember there was a heavy surge of teenage girls having navel piercing, wearing multi colour singlets, short shorts and Pink leggings. Was a hit at the time if I can remember correctly? Also accompanied by chunky black heeled boots. Towards the mid to late 90's the girls had changed into Tank tops and low rise jeans with underwear showing. We guys were wearing Khaki pants or "camo" pants. All the norm but then the late 90's hit and it was the start of the "EMO" stage. Inspired by the popular music of Marilyn Manson and NIN (Nine Inch Nails) punk/goth/grunge wear was out in force! Dark makeup, ripped shirts, jeans with the knee missing etc. Happy to have progressed through that phase let me tell you! The RM Williams and check shirt didnt cut it at the dances and we were left in the corner while overlooking a crowd of EMO's or Gothics sucking face. So you weren't the flagpole climber that day? I was sat in seats in front of what was where to buy cheap oakley sunglasses the last grassy bit of the hill (not counting the cricketrs club area which had a bit). The lunch time cricket matches were always amusing. As for fashion.
my god i'm glad my mates and i were always too drunk to bother with a camera! In the early 90's there was a bit of ripped knee jeans and flanno, a la, dead Kurt and the rest of Seattle's style. By '95 I think I had been affected by Britpop and had some serious cheap oakley frames hair and sideburns going, Gallagher style (first album era, when they were good.).
