OK - let's take this off at a tangent - what was your worst fashion statement 'when you were young'?

The mullet.

Ofcourse combined with a denim jacket with studs and a big Guns n' roses patch on the back, skinny black jeans, black T-shirt with a lumber jack shirt if it's cold, basketball shoes and a PLO shawl.

I dont think I have had any fashion disasters as I have never been remotely interested in fashion and cannot understand why fashion would be a reason enough to do anything. Having said all that, I once used to have a badge that I thought was funny, t'was in the shape of a biscuit and I used to wear it a lot.Embarrassing now because it is rather like telling the same joke over and over ( though that hasn't done some comedians any harm I suppose). I have had a few odd hairstyles various mullett phases in fact. Oh and I was one of those who wore a suit type jacket with jeans so that may qualify me- yeah I'll go with that.

I once wore a pair of chinos with a white shirt and brown waistcoat. That was pretty bad.

Just the first bit there was bad enough....  :P

OK, I'd somehow blanked it from my mind but I did have a mullet for several years.... it was pretty much exactly like this one.... unfortunately:

Sadly not....

I only had the hair, not the facial (or body) fungus.  Didn't have the pickup truck either.  Or the oversized Colt Seavers mouth ornament.

But... there was a transcription of Dueling Banjos in Guitar World recently.  I could try to learn it.

I'm not quite sure what is going on in this one. Either he has a very long body or very short legs (or both). Those jeans are the lowest I've seen yet. Maybe he's got a midget up his shirt (or it has been photoshopped)
I think I hate being indecisive.

I used to sport a paisly hooded top, Manc bowl head and flares made by inserting large triangles of some other paisly material into the seems. 

Still think it was better than trousers round the arse or (sorry Ian) Chinos and a wastcoat.
