Smokehouse Tavern: High Fashion Goes Down Home

Okay, so when I picked up the print edition this morning, I was completely delighted to see the cover. The Best of 1988 is a brilliant concpet (and, no, I didn't have anything to do with it). Hilarious.
Inspired, I decided to do some research and find the best of fashion, 1988. After a few pages that really missed the mark (hello, leg warmers were totally out by 1984!), I found this piece on the New York Times site. It's an entire article devoted to the fashion year 1988, written in 1988 so you know it's authentic and not nostalgic reimagining. My fave quote:

Everyone needs pockets today, especially in coats.

Wisdom for the ages.
