if naff naff still about hmm..? Geeze I recall it from when I was a kid..

Was it just a weird micro trend where I grew up to have those bin-liner -esque jackets with 'naff' across the back in multicoloured embroidery? They epitomised cool in 1993ish.

nope, same round here as well...hmm
I recall their logo was a pig..????

we called them coats belly buttons cos everybody had one

grin I was never allowed one. I must thank my mother. She didn't let me get a shellsuit either but I can't forgive her that.

Shhhh Mon 19-Sep-11 23:10:21

Your mum must have been in conversations with mine SB grin.
I managed to escape the shellsuit (sadly my sister didn't... along with the matching perm grin) but I was allowed a naff naff jumper.. I honestly thought I was the dogs bits and the jumper was for best ... I was such a lucky child wink

UrsulaWoleffay Mon 19-Sep-11 23:11:35

I wasn't allowed either actually but she did dress us in matching shell suits (me & my BROTHER btw) and I had a global hypercolor tshirt.

Shhhh Mon 19-Sep-11 23:15:12

oh fantastic !!!!!!!!!! I sooooooooooooo wanted one of those tshirts but mum was not for changing her mind. Dont think she was keen on folk placing their hand my various parts of my body to see the colour change effect shock wink.!!

btw.scootergal... sorry to hijack blush Hope you manage to find the coat smile

Then came the fake version of the Naff naff bin liner coat, purchased from stores at the fair or market, they said 'naff co 54' instead of naff naff and as the popular playground rhyme went; 'naff co 54, can't afford any more' ahh happy days (we couldn't even afford the fake ones)

Hilarious! I remember those bin liner coats.
Yes thats exactly what I m looking for pmsl!
Seriously though I realised it s naf Naf, a French label , maybe not the same (I hope) grin have ordered it through the local store and If I end up with a Bin Liner I ll post a pic

We could only get the Naff Co 54 in the town where I lived, so these were the fashionable ones.
