Do you dress to match the age of your trailor

Hello all
We bought our airstream mostly for going to classic usa car raly's
overhere in the netherlands
I like to match my clothes to the car or trailor car is late 50's
trailor is 70's
where can I find pics of that period camping live
I was thinking of hawai shirt, bermuda shorts and a couple of old photo camara's topped of with a colorfull hat

Remco... if your '74 has an 8-track, ya gotta go Disco baby! BeeGees and Donna Summer! Get your polyester disco suit out and boogie down!

Rent a couple of disco-era movies... they'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know about that era... Saturday Night Fever, Xanadu, Boogie Nights... I'm sure there are others...

dress to match trailer

I do dress to match the age of the trailer (1967). Unfortunately, at many rallys I don't seem to fit in.

Remco - I would like to apologize in advance for the impending deluge of bad clothing examples that you are likely to recieve. You must consider that those you are asking advice of may not be excellent examples of good taste.....

Blue jeans and tee shirts are a good choice in any decade (unless of course, you are from New York and then the jeans must be black).

So, in my case that would be clothes from 1985? Yeah, I pretty much still wear those every day.

Do you dress to match the age of your trailor?

Petunia and I dress casual yet sporty ... we're timeless.

For me ... hat, jacket and tie ... but no pants.

At least we'll be able to spot you at the rally, Porky

Remco, if you're dressing 70's don't forget the Daisy Dukes!

I looked ridiculous in hip-hugger bell bottoms in the 1960s. I'd look even more ridiculous now with my belly hanging over my belt. Besides, I don't think I could stand looking at the world through rainbow sunglasses at my age.

That's scary!

If I dressed to match the age of mine, I'd be in diapers!

The 50's

Ahhh for the 50's! The most romantic era in American history! Women (---girls!) dressed liked women (---girls!) and men dressed like men - and both sexes were proud to be what they were! Where the he-- did we go wrong??? There's still nothing more fetching than a charming lass who knows how to dress and leaves the rest to that wonderful male ability known as "imagination!" At 65 years old my imagination still beats anything hollywood can dish out! It's great to be a DOM that grew up in the 50's!

Yep, same here, assuming that Levis 501s haven't changed that much over the years. In truth, I'm going somewhat more retro, the older I get: I just got myself a new pair of really funky frames for my glasses (again).

Porky, we will just look for the individual being led off in handcuffs for indecent exposure...
