News Flash: Fashion Industry News makes Flutterby!
Dan's life has changed, fashion (beyond really bright tie dye's) is important to "the geek". - Worse.. I did not know OP was out of fashion.. My 2 year old $9 OP sandals are still favs.. and the brand still brings back memories of skateboards.. warm summer days.. - Jordache brings back memories of trying to peel jeans off of women who really should not have been wearing anything that tight..

Ya know the really sad part: I was going to make some comment about how I wasn't much of a fad follower, that long hair and brightly colored silk shirts were always out of style, and then I realized that the silk shirts are a fairly new thing...

Although if I could get 'em with mandarin collars and tie-dye 'em myself, I would.
