Newtownhamilton was a scene of pandemonium today with the news that the famous Adidas ‘button up’ track bottoms are to reach the weird little village.
The track bottoms released in 1991 predominately for American Basketball players so they could change quickly during a game soon became the ‘must have’ item for every man, woman and child in the Newry area.
However Newtownhamilton is only coming to terms with the technology of buttons and zips while most in the village are still fastening their clothes with twine and wool.
We spoke with one villager Brendan MeDa’sMeBrother and he told us:
“Hold on a minute, you mean to tell me trousers that have buttons on the legs? I can’t quite wrap my head around this. Are you sure? Well, if it’s true I can’t wait to be a part of this revolutionary way of dressing.”
