Chart Thursday: Punky Boppers

It’s Chart Thursday again. (Yay! Third ever!) Let’s have another around of What’s In the Stylistic Intersect? Today’s style-sets:
Stuff worn by très outré punk-types in the 70s and 80s

Stuff worn by pre-teens today*
The chart, if you please:

So what’s in the middle?** Again, a lot:
  • mohawks
  • ratty Chuck Taylors
  • ratty Vans
  • skinny jeans
  • Black Flag t-shirts
  • Ramones t-shirts
  • studded belts
  • bright-bordering-on-garish color schemes
What else?

* These musings are undoubtedly prompted by the recent start of the school year and its onslaught of freshly rocked-out little boppers.

** We could make things really complicated/fun by mixing it up with last weeks Old Man/Hipster Venn: What's worn by both Old-Men-Who-Were-Très-Outré-Punk-Types-in-the-70s-and-80s and also by the Pre-Teen-Hipsters-of-Today?


  1. I've sen some very young kids (that's who I hang with) wearing neon fishnet gloves.
