  1. I’m looking at the picture of the man with the stylin’ sun glasses and the Borat-style moustache…

    The caption says (transliterated from Cyrillic)Muzhskaya Rubashka. What does that mean?!?! I can only transliterate since I know the Latin cognates of all Cyrillic letters.

  2. Sexy women in the photos remind me of my favorite songs by band “Hot Chocolate”–a song called “Miracles.” Everyone–in honor of Soviet fashion women, sing along!

    I believe in miracles
    Where you from
    You sexy thing
    I believe in miracles
    Since you came along
    You sexy thing

        doooo . . . doo, doo, doo, doo, doooo . . . di-dit, di-dit,

        How did ya’ know I needed you so badly
        How did ya’ know I gave my heart gladly
        Yesterday I was one of a lonely people
        Now you’re lying next to me
        Making love to me

  3. Yep, 1989.

    Time was frozen in the USSR, as these pictures prove again. These outfits were fashionable in the West in provincial areas during 60’s and 70’s. More or less.. 🙁

    Awful. One of the worst times ever in fashion. Never to be repeated again, I hope.

  4. Funny thing. Russians in 89 were more stylish than Americans in 2008. Funny Ignorant Americans got no sense in style and taste.

  5. What is the culture of Russians? Drinking vodka, sleeping in subway, getting drunk in public and pass out everywhere, beating up Russians from caucusus and Asia, making child porn, prostituting in europe and america, threatening tiny neighbours is that it?

    If thats Russian culture I am not surprised Russia is still a 3rd world poor trash country.

    • From the above 2 comments it’s quite clear we need them both.
      To balance everything.

      And do not forget the entertainment value!

  6. Are you wondering what to give your Russian princess this Valentine’s Day? I would like to suggest Aran sweaters. They are very warm and are reasonably priced. My sweetheart just loves them. Yes, they do deliver to Russia. To avoid custom hassles, just order one sweater. Here is there website…

    If you have a sweetheart in Russia she would like an Aran sweater. The sweaters are reasonably priced, accepts all credit cards and is hassle free from Russian customs if you order one sweater.

    Valentine’s Day is coming…

  8. I once had an giraffe sweater, it was eating leaves. I think I had one with a cat (or just paw prints) as well. Must have been around ’89 (I was very young). Not as ugly as these ones though, they had a better use of colours.

    I’m from western Europe…

  12. It seems that Soviet fashion had better sense than Western in the same period. The 80’s just weren’t able to have the worst fashoin ever because the 70’s actuall happened (no, it was not a nightmare)
