Why yes, I think those paddles DO say Tri-Lambda...

Wasn't Lambda Lambda Lambda the nerds' fraternity in Revenge of the Nerds?

Back then T shirts were something boys wore under their dress shirts. Silkscreening was very expensive and only used for posters, banners, etc. It would be much more common to dress up, with gloves and pearls! (Well, I think even gloves were passe by 1968).

I love how all the clothes from the late 80s /early 90s are too big! Irishpipes senior picture is hilarious. Why did we think we needed to swim in our shirts?!

nylon stockings

Did anyone else notice on the photo of 1968 the girl in front with the nylon stockings (worn with garter belts)? The tops were always darker for 3". I remember when pantyhose were first invented; I thought it was the greatest invention ever! I hated those darned garter belts; we always had little indentions in our legs after sitting in class all day.

And the horror when a garter popped and your hose sagged!
My 24-year-old daughter thinks its old-fashioned to wear pantyhose.

You people are WAY too young if you don't get Tri-Lambda! That was from Revenge of the Nerds. I feel so old now.

YOU feel old...I never saw Revenge of the Nerds so I've never heard of Tri Lambda. (I think I was busy with sleepless nights, diapers and baby spit-up about that time).

Let's talk Animal House. That's more my era.

It should be everyone's era - a true classic.

I agree w/ mystikchik - we did dress "older" - we always had on full makeup, hose & flats to go out to the bars and in general. You have to remember this is coming off 10 years of our older sisters wearing t shirts and bell bottoms, or for formal occasions, looking like Laura Ingalls (basic example) and wearing little to no makeup. It's the cycle of fashion. Also, guys were either taking their cue from the English musicians and running around in ties, or Alex P. Keaton clones. We would have looked dumb dressed down next to them.

The advantage of this is that now, I think we look far younger than people 10-20 years older than us did at our age, because the clothes we wore weren't so "young" that we had to make a drastic change. Look out girls, when you hit 30 and your bod doesn't look the same in spaghetti strap tops, it's gonna suck hard.
