Casuals

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

After the punks and the mods and before the 'massive' was invented was the 'Casual'. The casuals were always seen hanging round the local park in Fred Perry, Le Shark or Sergio tracksuits or chinos. If you were sensible you stayed away!

    All the casuals at my school wore Farah trousers and Pringle jumpers - they looked like they were just off for a game of golf!

    Casuals started amongst Arsenal fans trying to dress like old men in golf wear, Pringle, Lyle & Scott etc. It was an early style of showing how much money you had, basically w*nkers showing off in bad fashions, I was too poor to join in !! ;)

    As a dedicated 80s Goth; my friends and I DESPISED causals! Though I have to admit to wearing an outfit at the age of 13 in 1984 that matches the exact description in the comment above - though I am not sure that was 'casual' wear as such, just godawful regular 80s fashion...

    I was a punk and we also used to call casuals, trendies! Most of my mates were Trendies which was a bit embaressing for me!Sort of Chavs of their day, if you like! Trendies official uniform was Bat Wing Jumper, Big Buckle Belt, Fishtail Skirt, Big Button Ear Rings and Tassley Boots (Which I see are back in again). And no Trendy was a REAL Trendy if they didn't own the Five Star 'Silk And Steel' album! Oh they hated me and my 'Bostin' Steve Austin' Fuzzbox album! Lol!
