A guy you went to school with many years ago is still wearing a pair of Adidas popper pants, battered Nike Air Max Classics trainers and a Kappa rain jacket, it has emerged.
Martin Trainor, who also wears a NASA jacket and a Kickers jumper in the winter, can still be seen wandering up and down Monaghan Street on Saturdays popping his trousers open to the knees when it gets too warm.
“I remember those clothes being pretty cool to be fair, even to the point where he made me a bit jealous”, admitted school friend Peter Quinn. “But I am referring to the summer of 1997 – the lad needs to move on. He’d look out of touch at a Jack Smyth’s closing down sale”.
Another school friend Eamon Wright said: “Perhaps he suffered years of cruel bullying and was so scarred he couldn’t move on? I admit though, I’m really tempted to re-live the old days and rip his popper pants open,”
