For those of us that were rolling around in Pampers back then, what is a "member's only jacket"?

When I was in jr high ('82-84) and high school ('84-88) they were very popular...parachute pants were popular then also. And Izod shirts w/ the little alligator.

Members Only jackets are making a big comeback around LA this year; it's nuts.

Cubical: Lacoste is the alligator, IZOD has the stylized Z I think.

IIRC, in the '80s, it was IZOD Lacoste...one and the same..

I had a two door Dodge Omni like that. Brings back memories..thanks!

And they did build a "Duster" in that bodystyle.

My brother's very first car was a Dodge Detomaso model which was a sister to the Duster, or rather, the Turismo. We did some body and paint work, cleaned up the interior and added some go-fast-but-don't-blow-up goodies.

It wasn't too bad but for the gear shifter which was so rubbery, you literally never knew if you were going into second, or fourth. It looked cool, for its day, but it was a piece-o-crap.

You're right. I forgot Lacoste didn't have exclusive US distribution back then. I stand corrected.

Dude, they aren't. Not at all. Shoulder pads are coming back for fall, say fashionistas. LA Times did an article about that a couple months ago, with Marc Jacobs debuting his "punk prom girl" look:

Personally, I can't wait. I love the 80s; I'm just waiting for big hair to come back.

omg homo alert

Anyway, yes darn it, I had a black Members Only jacket. Looking back on it, it was a pretty schizo thing for a farm boy to have one.

I'm not a fan of the 80's, especially when it comes to fashion. :P

I loved the 80's. I had my members jacket on, I drove my 76 Series 5 Chevy Luv truck I had totally restored and cruzed the strip hanging with friends. :D

I do have big hair which generally mirrors the late-80's/early 90's hair metaller style, and while I dig the music from the 80's I'm not sure I can really get into much else from that era.

Do we really want this back? :P
