Vesting Period - Behind The Awkwardness

“My father, brothers, and I in 1983. The sad part is it wasn’t planned that way. We all just showed up dressed so poorly.”

    This pic has been printed out and passed around to my entire family, because the dude with the beard looks exactly like my nephew, who was not even born until mid 1990s. the kid behind him looks similar to his cousin too. But it’s incredible how dead on it is to my nephew.

    Their vests match the fake trees in the background.

    I got a fever, and the only prescription, is more cowbell.

    Is that Justin Timberlake with a beard in the front?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. J says:

    Front brother’s kind of a babe. Without the beard, he’d have been my type c. 1983!

    Looks like a lot of “Naugas” gave their “hydes” for this photo! What a great picture!

    A feast of leathery awesomeness.

    This was a good in-VEST-ment!

    I just knew before I scrolled all the way down that it was an Olin Mills photo. They did so many awkward/corny photos in the 80′s.

    The Oak Ridge Boys would be proud.

  16. Cassius says:

    Matching leather vest yes!! But how about matching that awesome beard as well ?!

    Four Han Solos.

    I don’t think you are dressed poorly. Dad should have worn a long sleeved shirt, but other than that minor fashion faux pas, all I see is a happy family.

  21. Ginny says:

    Every one of you just happened to show up dressed in a leather vest? Really?

  22. Amice says:

    You know, you all look so happy, I can’t look at this as awkward.
    If just one of you had looked like you’d rather be at Wilson’s Leather picking out another vest…. But no; happy family, comfortable together. I likey.
