What About The 80s Comeback?

I've always seen highwaters in my department (it's one of the endearing qualities of software developers), but lately I've been noticing highwaters on guys outside of IT. Pants that graze the ankles seem to be the latest greatest thing. And a lot of them are wearing those weird one piece shoes.

If they're making a legitimate comeback, I won't be able to tease all the geeky guys anymore because they'd actually be hip. Though I guess I could tease them about finally being hip!

  2. does this mean my 4 year old highwater mom jeans (because I can never find anything that fits right)are now trendy?? cool beans.
