Lincoln High School Students, 1982

All of the photos were taken by Gary Fong as part of a 1982 fashion shoot for the San Francisco Chronicle. Peter Hartlaub resurrected them for a three-part “flashback project” at SFGate. Abraham Lincoln High School is a public school, obviously. “Local 69 Muff Dive” didn’t fly in prep land, where all the rich kids wore pink shirts with little alligators on them.

You want to know if I found all the t-shirts the kids are wearing, right? I did.

    Great job finding those t-shirts. Wow.

    Such a great year, ’82. Just before the advent of the synth/electro takeover, DEP hair gel and the dawn of the pegged pant. I remember those times well.

    Man, those concert 3/4-sleeve ringer shirts. Talk about iconic, standard-issue stoner/hesher wear of the early ’80s. Geez.

    I want to find that article from the SF Chronicle. That should be a good read.
