    Well, here’s something else of yours that I missed that I have absolutely no idea how I missed as something like this would’ve never been off my body had I known it existed. I was buying tons of mood T-shirts in the ’80s but they all had cut out patches of special color changing hard fabric glued onto the T-shirts. I never saw these where the entire shirt changed color. It was like being a walking science experiment, a gig I most certainly would have signed on for.

    The idea was cool, but they did have some flaws. The biggest problem with them was the fact that the color change started to become far less effective after so many washes. Plus the armpits tended to change color first which kind of gave the impression you were sweaty even if you weren’t. Still, if they were around today I would wear them.

    Oh, I remember when these were *THE* thing to have at school. I had a green one that changed to yellow.. but they were both day-glow so you could barely tell the difference. I envied the people with the purple ones that turned bright pink, because it was so obvious. But as Jack says, it was very obvious where exactly on your body you were feeling “unsure,” which I’m sure is one of the reasons they quickly passed into oblivion.
