They’ll pry my Docs off my gnarled dead feet

I’m a Gen X-er. If I take part in the 90s-fashion-revival (the good parts, like the Docs, and the flannel and the boyfriend jeans) is that the most Gen-X thing in the world to do (like, ironically replaying fashion that was the non-ironic style statement of my existential ennui and ironic orientation to the world in the 90s so like meta-irony to the max eye-roll) or am I turning into a nostalgic Boomer pining for the glory days of my youth? I am kind of un-ironically enjoying the Air-Ware bouncy comfort on my 45 year old feet and it’s really un-ironically nice to wear non-tight pants and shirts that don’t cling.

— Please help me understand the correct thing to do. 


I am literally typing this whilst wearing baggy cutoff jeans over tights, so I think you know what to do here.

  1. I just discovered your blog, and I’m smitten. I am also a Gen-Xer who grew up in the 70s who loves her boyfriend jeans (wearing a pair RIGHT NOW) and I wish I had a pair of Docs. I look forward to reading more!


  2. I am in love with this blog! I’m either a young Xer, or an old millennial (awesome). I wasn’t allowed to have black Docs the first time they rolled around. I’d be lying if I said I don’t have to remind myself daily that just because I’m allowed now doesn’t mean I should buy all the Docs. Adulting is so overrated sometimes.
