What Designers Thought We'd Be Wearing In The Year 2000



Very funny YouTube Video from 1930 showcasing what men and women might be wearing in the year 2000 - play close attention to the narrator when he says, "Oooh swish!"

Hmmm, I wonder, I just wonder if any of those people in the video are still alive? If so, they would all be around 100 years old - or almost as old as I feel!

By the way, congratulations on your 2,000 posting! That, as Tom said, is quite an accomplishment!

I have plenty of "candy for cuties"....

The prediction of cantilever heels and no dresses isn't far off the truth. Oh wait, no dresses was the 70's (hot pants)....

Guess you can tick off as correct the bit about the man being fitted out with a telephone, a radio (OK maybe iPod/MP3 player?) and containers for coins, keys etc.
