    Yup... Under skirts. That was the big thing when I was in 8th grade.. Ofcourse I took the whole thing one step further and wore mine woth cowboy boots. It's pretty painful to look at the pictures now.

    I made a lot of 80s fashions mistakes, but absolutely not on this one!

    Re: Biker Shorts

    One of my friends wore them one night and we made fun of him so bad that he never wore them again. Man, he looked ridiculous. This was after we had been out of college for a few years and had put on a few pounds, which made it all the worse.
    He also once made the mistake of wearing a Greg Norman style straw hat to a golf scramble. We called him "Dutch" all day because he looked like an extra from the movie Witness. A few years later I was picking up my daughter when she was playing with his kids and I noticed the hat on the wall in his family room. I told his wife about us making fun of him when he wore it and she got mad at me. Turns out she was the one who bought it for him and he wouldn't tell her why he only wore it the one time.

    Re: Biker Shorts

    I loved them! I wore them under skirts, torn up denim shorts, and of course, with huge oversized Tshirts tied on the side! I wasn't too crazy about the shiney ones, but I did have a nice pair of shiney pearly pink shorts.

    I only wore them under skirts since that was the "in" thing at the time. I think I also had a pair of the ones with the lace trim that were really popular and wore them with a big long t-shirt.

    Re: Biker Shorts

    the movie "White Men Can't Jump" has been going non-stop the last couple of months on cable and my son has been COMPLETELY FASCINATED with the biker short/biker cap outfit (and the tanktops!) that Wesley Snipes is ALWAYS in.... i dunno why.

    back then, a college roomate of mine gave me 3 pair that were a gift from his ex-g/f's mom (who was an aspiring fashion designer.... don't you just love breakup liquidations?), and i used them all the time for a summer when working out. the compression they gave was a god-send.

    nowadays, i own several units of compression-wear tops and bottoms.... why did it take so long to invent this stuff?

    that's right, son.. back in the 80's/early 90's, UnderArmour looked like Fruitty of the Loom's... we didn't "protect this house"; we ran for our lives to escape a beatdown.

    I didn't wear them then but I wear them now with long shirts or tank tops. They're so comfortable
