Time Machine Tuesday! Skidz!

Ok back in the day, when MC Hammer was not letting you touch this, and Full house was still kinda new, and the Simpsons JUST started airing on TV, there was the fashion phenomenon called Skidz! Basically they were these SUPER Baggy pants, almost like pajama pants material and they were meant to look like MC Hammer's pants! See below!



They were SUPER POPULAR So of course I didn't have any (Until they weren't popular anymore of course!) Every one in Scarlett Middle School in Ann Arbor (represent) was rockin these shits! In retrospect they looked RIDICULOUS! Oh and they cost $60+ dollars! WTF? who is gonna pay $60 for PJ pants! Well, lots of people! They have become kind of a collectors item too it seems, these pants below



sell for like $250 in Japan! WOW! I wish I had a pair now, they'd be PERFECT for lounging around the house! Anyone have pair? I had the white & checkered black ones! WORD!

This is when I wish I related to that flashback. : ( All I can say is... sometimes my pants are baggy?

Skidz...I forgot about those! What about "Units", the women's clothing store where you could buy a belt that could also triple as a skirt and tube top? And of course Girbaud Jeans (WAY too expensive for me).
