All he needs is a red nose.
Poor Red! How did we ever survive those 70’s fashion trends?
The shirt is all wrong. White would attract dirt like crazy, so maybe a denim jacket over said shirt?
Looks like something my brother wore in 1969…..
It’s an outfit that will bring joy to all the other kids at school who sees it!
Ah, the 60’s, back when my mother dressed me like Marcia Brady!
ahh the zip zip sounds of corduroy
Get back into the jeans and no shoes – Yikes! Still love you, Red…hugs for Rover
August 30, 1970. A stamp was six cents and Nixon was in the White House.
Bell bottom pants and platform shoes were my favorite
Hey that’s how I got my start!
Hey it’s Maynard G. Krebs !
Like Rovers questioning head-tilt in the last panel
Red is stylin!!!!!
or 1968 ?!!!
That wasn’t very encouraging Rover, your snark is worse than your bite!
My sentiments exactly, Rover!
I don’t get it…what is wrong with his outfit?
Those clothes are conservative compared to what I wore! Do a stylin’ walk and you are all set, Red!
Sometimes I like funny clothes!
I begged Mom to get me a pair of Flagg Bros. heels..she did..! ghostofthedoll.co.uk/retromusings/flagg-bros-shoes-adverts-1966-1972
Add some vertical stripes to the pants and make it a turtleneck instead and send me off to kindergarten, baby! (You can keep the platform shoes, too, I think I wore Keds.)
That is EXACTLY what I think of the outfits kids wear today!
Woah… talk about Throw Back Thursday!
Remember the bell bottoms with cuffs? I found all sorts of things I dropped by checking the cuffs.
I wore very similar clothes from 1982 to 1990. all hand me downs from my older brothers who wore them in the late 60’s early 70’s. being poor really gave you out of date clothes back then.
I remember that stuff. Had some of it.
A kid not wearing sneakers is an unhappy kid.
If you don’t get it…you must dress like that!
It is like what I wore back in my elementary school days,except the bell bottoms would have been plaid. Thanks mom.
Lose the platform shoes and it looks like stuff I used to wear in the ’60s.
British school uniform of the time – white shirt, school tie, blazer, gym slip for girls, short pants for boys, three-quarter wool socks and lace-up shoes.
Aren’t you a bit young for a Disco suit, Red?
