    Chubby and Tubby was a great place to buy Chuck Taylors and shrink to fit 501s.
    I equate Chubby and Tubby with Chuck Taylors.
    And Carhart. Got a bunch at substantial discounts when they shuttered the White Center store.
    I wasn’t wearing Carhart to school in the early 80s.
    I'm sure you were wearing LawMan Painters, like the rest of us.
    I went to Catholic school, we wore a fucking uniform. I think the cheap clothes my mom bought were called Tough Skins or something stupid like that. All the poor kids wore them.
    I wore Toughskins jeans as a kid

    I actually never knew you wore a uniform to school.
    Catholic schools wore uniforms as a way of socialism to prevent the pours from feeling pour because we all had to wear the same thing. It didn’t work because the pours like me could see the difference in the clothing brands.

    People with a sense of humor and liked to have fun. Now they have a stick up their asses.

    12:30Pm Husky games start times. Crisp walks to the game with dads.

    Fans that showed up to games early and cared. Vs coming late and fucking around on their phones before leaving early.

    The shoes, jewelry and jackets gave away the class differences, as well.

    HR or OLG? Please not HF.
    HR all the way. HF was in White Center, right?
    Yerp. Sits right on Roxbury. A classy boulevard if there ever was one.

    I’ve been out of Seattle long enough that I look up all 3 schools on Google maps just to make sure HR was closest to us. It also helps that momma Nacho went to school there.

    So they were selling the stadium the rapidly growing locally owned company [CX Corporation] i worked for needed a large manufacturing space so they bought the land and ripped down the stadium and built the new facility... I worded there for a couple of years before the company was sold to a swiss mega corporation the bought the company for the patents and technology which competed with their products and promptly laid off the 400-500 people that worked there.... so no its a lowes and probably some other stores as well?

    No love for Eagle Hardware?

    World famous Old Hardware store on Roosevelt & 42nd(?).

    If you lived in an old house with old hardware that broke, it was THE best store around.

    But I actually bought most of my bigger items at Ernst.

    No love for Frederick and Nelson's? There was one at almost every mall, back in the day.

    Used to get my Boy Scout stuff at Aurora Village. Now you have to drive down Rainier Ave - scary - to get your scarves and shorts.

    One other thing I miss is the chunk of the Monorail by the old Nordstrom building, across Pine Street, that had the big platforms and the asphalt triangle underneath where pretzel & hot dog vendors set up alongside musicians and street performers. We still have the monorail, but it's about 200 feet shorter now than it used to be, and everything in Westlake Park sucks.

    Fuck Frederick and Nelson. They bought The Crescent and ruined it.
