  1. I'm curious where these pictures were taken. I was a teenager in the 80s & I don't remember anyone wearing shorts that short! lol

    1. People wear them much shorter now. They aren't that short. It looks right to me.

  2. I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale and graduated HS in 1983. These pictures are complete déjà vu for me. I almost expected to see myself or my friends in them. I don't recognize any specific locations unfortunately but the hats from The Button and an FIU shirt make me believe it's somewhere in south Florida.  As for the shorts, they were called "Dolphin shorts" and they were ubiquitous. My gf probably had 10-15 pairs lol

  3. As a Southern California kid, there were some similarities, but these teens looked quite a bit different. I think Ft. Launder dale girls liked to wear their Dolphins higher up on their waists. :)

  4. The hair style on many of the girls looks more late 70's than early 80's. Its the "Farah Faucet" hair-do.

    1. That is exactly how people wore their hair until the very late 80's.

    These pics look like they are from early 80's. Dolphin shorts, Bass flip flops, and feathered hair. I wasn't quite a teenager in the early 80's, but I still wore them constantly.

  6. The girls were not fat asses like they are today. Everyone looks happy, healthy and without the bad attitude. Goddamn, I hate the feminist's that ruined American Women. And the pervasive obesity started with high fructose corn syrup and low fat recommendations to increase profits.

    You don't remember Dolphin shorts?

  10. They are so damned cute. Most are tipping well over 180 lbs now.
    We were young, once.

    And how ridiculous will Hollister and sports shirts be in 30 years?

  12. Dolfin Swimware is still in business. These mid 70's designs were for covering yourself at swim meets between events but became the "thing" from 1976ish on. They were made from the same quick drying nylon as the speedo style swimware. I still see them on occasion at garage sales. Any respectable Valley Girl wore them daily in So Cal from May until Sept.
