Charles Barkley makes a living speaking without a filter, usually while wearing a mock turtleneck with a blazer. But back in 1992, his style was even better. Better than mock turtlenecks? Oh yes. Better than mock turtlenecks. Just look at those pants. They don’t make pants that color any more. And that shirt. Try to look away from that shirt. It’s not easy to do. There are so few clothes inspired by medieval tapestries these days.
Anyway, this is a follow-up to how much I love the LIFE Magazine photos on Google. Some people are thrilled about access to iconic images of the Vietnam War; others enjoy the glamorous stills of film legends from the ’40s and ’50s. Me, I’m all about Planet Hollywood openings, baby. Where else are you gonna get Sly Stallone wearing a chain restaurant-themed two-tone leather jacket with a Hemingway title on it? That’s an acid trip’s worth of ’90s merchandise right there.
