The bare male midriff was a look in the mid 80s

For Gen X males

Boomers were not teens in the mid 1980s. The very youngest Boomers were 20ish in 1984.

That sub is the stuff of mental retardation. It’s devoted to the hatred of Boomers, but they don’t know what a Boomer is.

But damn, that War Eagle Barbell is hot as fuck.

green shorts looks fun, too.

I lived in NYC during this era, and men weren't wearing this at the basketball courts in Central Park, or anywhere else in Manhattan.

Those dudes have nice legs and bad haircuts.

Alex Winter in a cut-off and bare feet in Bill and Ted was the epitome of the hot little '80s elf.

They're not boomers, their hair isn't long enough.

These were elder Gen X for sure. Bring back the male crop top!

The last Boomers were born through 1964 and indeed still in (although, yes, just exiting) their teens in 1985, and we assure you there were some of those 19-year-olds wearing and strutting around in those hot half-tops then. :)

Those aren’t Boomers. That’s Gen X. Christ, the young gens are so completely detached from reality. The delusion is nuts.

The caption says Boomers. If you're 20 in 1982 you're a boomer. The short shorts and midriff for men is like 70s and early 80s. It skews young boomer I'd say.

It was more of a look during the Carter years.

War Eagle in a town in West Virginia. If these boys are from there it will be hard to precisely date the photo unless you are an elder Hillbilly.
