A really nice way to check out some of the looks is to watch Cheers from the beginning. Not so much the main characters but some of the bar patrons and minor bit-parts.

Patrick is right about the chinos. US Surplus were rock solid but hard to get in UK in anything like 'normal' sizes. When the Levis 'Aviation Regulation' Chinos came on stream ('81) that was the business because they were widely available, a perfect cut and really well made from lovely thick cotton. Damn, I miss those pants!

Just watched the Cheers pilot on US Netflix. Great show. Forgot how much I liked it.

Diane's lover "Professor Sumner Sloane" is wearing a BD with a v-neck sweater. Tweed sport coat with centre vent…2 button with wide lapels. Exactly what I would have imagined.

Thanks for the reminder ,Sidewinder.

I have always thought the pic above had a '79 vibe.

Love this guy. Pic is from HTJ.

top pic of you without a doubt has the '78-'79 campus vibe

I also like the second pic of the kid in his Baxter State parka, ocbd, kelly Shetland, brown 519s and Wallabees ....

the incredibly wholesome 60/40 parka was only worn by the nice kids

Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

that would have gotten some attention for sure, but I did not see anything like that particular combination either when I was in school or any other time, until now.

hard to tell what the real color of the duffle coat is but I swear nobody was wearing them '78-'82 and I remember this because I bought a regular camel-colored one at Andover in fall '82 and I was like the only person in Boston wearing one that winter

the floppy tennis hat?   ... we were wearing baseball caps and knit ski caps ...... not recalling actual floppy hat wear at school 

the tepee-motif sweater is more unwearable than not but it's still funny ... reminds me of a great room of dudes who were one year younger, they were a bunch of jokers, and they would wear goofy stuff like that on purpose, especially the one of them who looked so much like Spicoli ... ha ha ... loved those fools .....

I had a Norwegian sweater and a ribbed gray marled ragg sweater and an Icelandic sweater, as well as normal Shetlands, Shaggy Dogs, and lambswool v-necks but not any snowflake-patterned deals 

if those stripes are from a rugby shirt, I wore rugby shirts a lot and loved them, but in school, not college ... I'd wear one now without any hesitation .....

Love that Champion catalog. Too bad they killed their reverse weave sweat shirts. Kellsport is the only way to go, I am afraid.

I think what I may have done then is Gilligan's Island with a duffle coat.

Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

Thanks to WM ive managed to get hold of this deadstock US made LL Bean parka..although I have a Woolrich one I never felt the colour suited me much... I like the fact this one isnt one of the powdery blue ones which looked a bit dated

the Kellsports have always looked good to me, but the 18-ounce fabric is heavy .... btw F. what do you mean by "killed," are you saying the quality has slipped badly?

Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

I recently bought a Champion "Reverse Weave," the modern version. The fabric is much lighter, containing nearly 20% polyester.
My Kellsport, purchased a year ago, has a thick, heavy, and stiff fabric. Only now is the fabric beginning to soften.

Re: The Late 70s Prep Checklist

Someone bought me a Kellsport sweat last Xmas, it's a bit of a hybrid - crew neck with front pouch pocket (like a hoodie).
Very thick and warm, would prefer a saddle shoulder/raglan sleeve but great quality for the money.

It's difficult to beat the Goodwear sweats , great shape  and if you're in the US a bargain.
http://www.goodwear.com/long-sleeve-cre … midweight/

It's worth checking the 'Specials' page on their site, sweats in burgundy and hunter green were 70% off last month
and there's currently a 'grab bag' offer on  5 shirts for $30, no choice in what you get but a bargain

Wise words Stan .you have got to have the new England climate for some of it.
I do love the Bean and have an abundance of mocs and the exact same Baxter state parka that Bop has just purchased.
I have never really been able to get much wear out of my Norwegian sweater....its just never cold enough for that mighty beast.

XL Bop.The only Bean i have in an XXL is a made in USA ragg wool sweater.
It fits because its a very tight knit like the Norwegian (which is XL) it has to be very cold to wear it.
