Hemlines And The Economy

Recommended Posts

The roaring twenties, the swinging sixties ... boom times economically and shorter than average hemlines

The 1930s and 70s saw the opposite - with ankle length dresses.

So can we prodict an HPC from what people are wearing ?

The economy and skirt lenghts

And

The mini-skirt and the swinging sixties

PS Don´t take this post too seriously :)

Any more pictures? :D

EDIT: Seriously, looking at the graph I think it is along the lines of the Pirates and global warming graph from the Pastfarians:

This is the most logical and sensible post on here all week, oh and I agree with Durch, we definately need more pictures to draw a proper conclusion from this.

Of course, it´s purely for research purposes into socio-economic trends :D

Incidentally, how much did a house cost in Twiggy´s heyday?

Unfortunately I was born too late for the summer of love and Woodstock :(

In that case Hugh Heffners PlayBoy Mansion is never gonna lose its value !! :D

..this hemline thing seems more like a LAGGING indicator of confidence...it gets short when times are good....if jody marsh could get hers much shorter she'd be stark bollock naked!!!.......leads me to believe they'll be dropping pretty smarly.

My current theory is height of high heels at the moment. Lots of (mostly!) women teetering around at the moment. Come the recession it'll be back to the court shoe IMO...

TLM

Seems to have gone the other way...

Out in the West End last night I saw this new fashion for impossibly high heels all over the place. These things look like instruments of torture. It's almost as if we're entering an age of sado-masochism, suffering for the sins of the past ten years and enjoying it!

I was thinking that.

could there be such a thing as the "debauchment index",that correlates with the debasement of the currency?

In the 70's we saw a fairly rapid rise in seedy soho sex-shops.Given we seem to be in a fairly similar financial environment now,it really could get offensively bad.

We had the rise of casino's and lap-dancing clubs during the BOOM years,what on earth happens when the young ladies in the industry need to go the extra mile to pay their bills?

The pimps already outsourced the hookers to get it cheaper,where does it stop?

The Sun says there's a huge bust on the way ...

When I was 16 I went out with a girl with double G cup size.

Just needed to get that off my chest.

Did that experience give you a taste for the larger lady, or the opposite, Mr P?

No, I got my own pair of t1ts instead.
