Getting Old, Chapter XXVII

The task today was to accompany #1 son while he rented a tuxedo for the upcoming Junior Prom. Left to his own devices, I'm confident he still would have done better than I did for my first Prom, which can be summed up by the words "powder blue tux with white ruffled shirt." It was definitely a sight to see, I can tell you that. The thing is, back in 1977 that sort of thing was all the rage. And we all thought we looked really cool.

So, #1 son will look something like this, although you have to use your imagination a bit - grey herringbone vest, tuxedo shirt, bow tie.

Hahahaha, oh, I remember those powder blue tuxes. The 70's really were a fashion nightmare, weren't they? Why did we ever think those were cool?
