How many of you guys who were around in the late 90s had Jnco jeans? You know, back when they were "cool" and they cost, like, a thousand dollars a pair. C'mon! ADMIT IT!



In all seriousness, though... what other ridiculous fads can you guys think of that have come and gone? Post pics if you have em!

I HAD JNCOS!!!! I thought i was the badest **** in the 4th grade. I remember yo-yos, tech Decks, and various trading card games being huge too.
#3
I never had Jncos, my mom wouldn't buy them because they were too expensive. But I did wear Lee Pipes, which were similarly gigantic and ridiculous, when I was in like 5th grade.

2nd-1/5 of 4th grade, to be cool was to have…

•JNCO Jeans (Which I had, my mother never let me have, until she accidentally bought me a pair.
•A T shirt with a huge shiny badass dragon on it
•Adidas.
•Pokemon/Yu Gi Oh/Magic cards
•Pogs. (At the time, was really more of a 6th graders thing. Anyone younger was "actin' like a big kid")
•Oh yes, and the original Tamagotchi. I still have mine; however my poor "Stinker" (Yeah, that's what I named hime. Stinker.) is loooooongg dead.

You stack them upside down and then you throw down your slammer and whichever ones turn right side up go into your stash. Continue until no pogs are left and whoever has the biggest stash wins.
