I'm just a hanger on from the first time round!! In the late 1977, we had the Queens Jubilee and Sex Pistols! Cord trousers or jeans & lots of tartan. I was 15 years old. It was such a great time. I had a great t-shirt dress diagonally cut purple on the top & hot pink on the bottom! I guess I'm just a sad old Brit! My 22 year old daughter is a Goth, presumably some folks here fit that description.
My punkest items are fingerless gloves (obviously!) mohair sweaters and stash sweaters for my brother when he was on the road travelling in the mid 80's and a black & red striped sweater for my ex-husband in the early 80's. Recently I knit the alien scarf for my youngest son.
Sadly my new husband was never allowed to wear anything but shirt & trousers, never dyed his hair, got piercings or even had a whacky haircut! I count that as child abuse myself!!

I was age appropriate in the mid-80's for punk... I can't even imagine life with no experimental hair, no safty pins holding clothes together, no koolaid to dye your hair... Maybe he needs the mohawk hat to let loose his rebellion
