Start Me Up
Date: 1980s to 1990s
Children of a certain era know exactly what someone means when they say “Starter jacket.” The brightly-colored satin jackets were on the sidelines of NBA games just as often as playgrounds and classrooms during the 1980s and ’90s. With players such as Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Robert Parish and Dennis Johnson wearing these threads, it’s no wonder why kids found the jackets to be the most stylish fashion piece of the time.
