Forbes.com reported designers are harking back to a time when men felt a bit more lucrative, citing Ralph Lauren's John Lennon sunglasses and Lacoste's classic polo shirt. The idea is guys will wanna buy it, since theoretically they remember having more dough when it was chic to tie a sweater around their neck.
It'd be one thing if these heyday fashions were discounted, like maybe the Lacoste polo should have a vintage price, too. But those Lennon-esque shades are no steal at $350, and Lanvin's knock-off Converse high-tops are $1,830. I don't care how rich you were in the '80s, a pair of polka-dotted Bermuda shorts aren't going to put that cash back in the bank, and at $100 a pop, your spending a pretty penny just to look like you haven't been shopping in 20 years.
Find any of these items at a resale shop? Then we'll talk about nostalgia.
