In my nearly four year quest to scan and document the fashions and pop culture of the 1970s (and spillover into adjacent decades), I have taken a few moments to engage in scanning a few pages from a 1981 Fall/Winter catalog.  Specifically, the children's apparel portion.  

It won't take you long to recall what was the prevailing fad of the time: designs on pockets. Certainly not a high water mark in fashion history, but insanely popular nonetheless.  Check out some more pages of pants pocket bedazzlement, with a few striped tube socks and iron-on t-shirts thrown in for good measure. Enjoy.
