    Plaid Stallions Back to School 1975 Style



    If you're like me, September is filled with memories of being dragged to the mall to try on your new "Back to School" ensembles. My own mother was partial to "Marks and Spencers" or as I referred to it "Corduroy Hell".

    On this wonderful occasion let's look at the best outfits 1975 would force you to try on and try on and try on. More after the jump!








    Dressing your daughter like an ironing board cover was a brief fad that disappeared with the CB craze.








    It's miniature Oscar Goldman and Steve Austin!





    That virginity is not going anywhere.




    Outfits such as these provided a soft launch to a career in the foodservice industry. Also, I'll never get over the free use of the word "Chubbies" back then.





    Happy Back to School!






    We have a PodCast! It's fun, please listen.

    Yikes!

    However, I vividly recall my mother putting me in corduroy pants and velour shirts. So, I have little room to talk.

    "Chubbies". And we thought "husky" was psychologically damaging.

    I remember going to our local store, Lermans, and then J.C. Penny a lot for clothes. We had to go to "the big city" for that one, so I could usually engineer a rare stop at Thornberry's, TRU or Children's Palace, so it was worth it!

    And I had the burgundy version of H. I saw a teenage girl wearing velour shorts the other day. It caused the same anxiety filled flashback that this catalog did for me. I hope fashion isn't heading back in that direction.

    I would've loved to go back to school looking sharp in one of those, actually. Youngest of four, so, hand-me-downs were it.

    I had the same outfit but in blue. And my mom bought me a brand new pair of tan color wallabees. For the 1975 1976 year.
