Recollections of the Past is a series I plan to run about sneakers, fashion, and music from our past. It will feature various pop culture icons from the late 80s into the 90s when myself and a lot of my target audience for this blog were cutting our chops and forming our styles. Today we look at the Starter Pullover Parkas that were huge in the ‘88-‘93ish time frame. These parkas were so simple yet so perfect. They started as an all black nylon shell pullover featuring a kangaroo pocket on the front. The typical branding was a team name on the front pocket, team logo at the collar, Starter hits on the sleeve and between the shoulder blades, and a large team logo on the back. The most popular teams were the popular in everything at that time. Bulls and Hornets from the NBA, Raiders, Falcons, and Panthers from the NFL, and Kings and Ducks. See the picks below for a few reminders.
