Is there anything from a bygone decade or era that you wish would come back? Why do you want it to come back? This could be anything, from phrases to devices that are no longer used to things nobody does anymore.

There are two things I would like to bring back. First, the word radical. I just really like that word. But it's not cool to say it anymore.

'Radical car.'

The second is the palanquin. Imagine...being carried everywhere in a comfy bed by your loyal retainers. Ah, bliss.

My personal thing I'd want to see brought back is the Victoria-era English. That way, you could sound sophisticated as hell and people would actually be able to understand you.

I'm addicted to the pin-up style of the 50's, the freedom of the 60's, the music of the 70's and the dance moves of the 80's.

I use the word radical all the time. The key to being cool is not caring if you are cool, I think. Except groovy. Saying groovy will never been cool again. I tried.

Also, yes to palanquins.

For me, I like formal dress. Men in suits are so sexy. ....Palanquin carried by men in suits.... Got a bit lost there. But yeah, I think it would be fun if people dressed up more, or wore more traditional costumes out and about.

Also, those bicycles with one giant wheel.

And elevator attendants.

And drinking wine in public parks.

traditional clothing. I have an OCD for fashion from the past.





Elizabethans can keep their tights though. I'm never going to wear those even if they become popular/trendy. I'm insecure about showing my crotch bump in public.

Men used to put more effort into their fashion... now all they wear are jeans and shirt... it's absolutely boring...

But some of them look sooo good in just jeans and shirt.

Also, I'd like to see more textile mills in the US, and for them to use the "old methods" of weaving and have a good selection of reproduced patterns. The quality of fabrics made in that fashion is usually very nice and sturdy. I'd don't like how flimsy modern mass-produced fabrics tend to be. I only specify the US, because I don't know how it is in other countries, and, at two in the morning, I don't want to research.
What I'm referring to is similar to this, but also with clothing/clothing fabrics:

Come to think of it, it would also be interesting to be able to order clothing fashions from as early as the 1700s. Patterns and styles can be reproduced from paintings.
