cargo pants

October 18 2007


do you ever wonder what happens to clothes when their time in the fashion spotlight ends?

for example, what did stores do with all the leftover bell bottom jeans when the punk/new wave scene started to gain traction in the early 80’s?

who is wearing all the juicy couture velour track suits from 2001?

i don’t know about those two examples. but i do know where all the cargo pants from 1997 ended-up. somehow they’ve all gathered in asheville, like the swallows of san juan capistrano or the salmon returning to spawn in alaskan rivers.

sure, i had cargo pants. i’d just love to know how they got from my local salvation army store to western north carolina.

oh, and crocs! please don’t get me started on crocs.
