Ah - the 90's fashion revival continues. Now everyone can re-live what it's like for everyone to see how and where exactly you sweat.......

speaking as some one who was only 5 in 1990, these were originally short sleeve then? suprises me as I assumed the fashion back then judging from rave videos is, if it's not a long sleeve T (something you don't see much of now) then you're not 'cool'

for a proper revival you need to get everyone to tuck their shirts in their jeans right? strange look. but then I guess, if everyone did it, it doesn't stand out.

I remember them as being short sleeve. I was certainly wearing long sleeve T-shirts out raving though. Eventually had to cut the arms off my Subbase one as they just went out of shape.

Yep - i had a few long sleeve t-shirts, including:
> A 'Nervous Records' effort in green with lettering on the left arm
> A blue one with the shop-keeper from Mr Benn on the front (with spirals for eyes)
> A dark green Altern-8 one (88 Acid Revival Productions)
> A hooky white 'Ewing' one that i bought from North Weald market

In fact: When i picked up a bag full of comics from my parents house last year (that had been stored in their loft), there was a copy of Hip Hop Connection magazine. And on one of the pages was the order form that i'd cut out to order the 'Nervous Records' top.
Now that's OLD SKOOL! Although i can't recall if i used a Postal Order!

I used to religiously buy HHC, until I had an epiphany in early 1991... :lol:

Wow, I'm not the youngest one on here :shock:

Wasn't pop watches around that era to? Some of them had colour changing straps.

Weren't the originals called Global Hypercolour? Pretty sure I've still got one in the loft.
