The Wrath of Fashion

(okay, I appologize to everyone who has already seen this, but I'm going to be busy the next couple of days, and recycling old material is better than nothing, no?)

These images are taken from an interview special that was included
on The Wrath of Khan DVD. It was probably filmed sometime in 1982.
Now let's see if the coolest character in Star Trek lore also has
the best fashion sense.

First we have the normally cool James T. doin' some rico suave
circa 1977:

Maybe next time Kirk!

Next up we have 'Bones', who is rarely cool, going for that British
dandy look, also circa 1977:

Am I the only one who looks at that picture and thinks he has kids
chained up in his basement? Okay it is just me, sorry.

Okay, so maybe Spock is the coolest of them all....maybe not. God
knows when this monstrosity is supposed to date from:

I've seen many an ugly leisure suit, and I have a hard time believing that he honestly thought it was anything other than embarrassing to wear that. It must'a been wash day.

Ah, but at least someone had the good sense to show up in something he didn't pick up down at the Goodwill:

Go Ricardo! You're definitely the coolest!

OK, you want to hear something bad? I remember those styles... and remember thinking that they were so cool!

Star Trek, Fantasy Island, Love Boat? Ah, those were the days.
