Bugle Boy Jeans
We’ve already covered how awesome it was to tight-roll your jeans (we love it!), and we may have even said that having elastic on the bottom of your pants constituted cheating. But we never specified that Bugle Boys didn’t count. Why?? Because they were Bugle Boys, for heavens sake.
These lovely, acid-washed trousers practically came up to your armpits, were fashionably adorned with pleats (PLEATS! Jeans with pleats, people!), had ample pocket space… and your ankles? Well, their circulation was slowly being cut off, but hey! Beauty is pain, right? And in the 80s, let’s just say there was a lot of pain.
Originally only for male population, the Bugle Boy line eventually went on to include denim jackets that girls could sport as well (and thank goodness, because we were starting to feel left out of such an awesome fashion fad!) We dare you to show your ass at a Friday night football game without that Bugle Boy jean skirt. Sacrilege!
You couldn’t go wrong with the classic acid-washed look because, really, there had to be something to distract people from seeing how the super-high waistband accentuated your hips. Accessorize them with with a pair of stark white high-top Reeboks, and nobody could deny your fashion-savvy ways. At least no one from our favorite decade.
Yes. They are Bugle Boy Jeans.
