    I was ultimatly uncool :( I wore socks over mine. I didn't show the straps off :(

    I wonder when the stirrup pants will come back. From the way things are going I'm guessing they'll be in before the year is up.

    They are ski pants! Well thats we used to call them here. I don't know why. I used to like to wear mine with my sexay hi-top matchstick trainers and my global hypercolour t shirt. I thought I looked damn hot for a 12 year old.

    *also had a global hypercolour Tshirt*
    didnt have matchstick trainers though - I wasnt THAT cool.
    Do you remember "Nicks" trainers. I think they were like poor-mans Nike.

    If they were slouch socks, you win at coolness.

    Nah, these beauties are jodhpurs:

    If anyone ever wears them as a fashion item (oh, I remember those times) I will point and laugh.

    And I STILL HAVE a global hypercolour t-shirt. I don't wear it though, don't worry.

    hahaha EURRGHHH i cant believe i was responsible for this thread. to set this straight i DO NOT want jodhpurs nor do i want leggings with stirrups. Just plain, stop at the foot leggings. The ones with stirrups are usually really thick, i wanted them a bit thinner. i saw a pair in a shop that were lush but were like £20 :O so i am on the search for a cheaper pair

    Loads of girls round my way wear jodhpurs up the pub after riding. It's all good if they've got a nice arse. :thumb:

    Thats a global hypercolour tshirt alright. I would have had one in about 1991.
    They change colour with heat, which is no good if you have sweaty armpits or your back is really hot.

    I totally had shiney red leggings when I was little, which I used to wear under a pair of tiny blue shorts, with white trainers, a minnie mouse tee-shirt and a walkman playing New Kids On The Block. I was sooo cool!
