    The mall in Butte MT still looks like this……

      Nice, dude. The Billings (Rimrock) Mall provides a pretty good laugh as well with all the wannabe gangsters.

    • Zoink

      HAHAHAHA – BUTTE – that means ass

    • SeaBassEX

      Both Butte and Billings are shitholes.

    • The 406

      Heeeeeey, Montana Chivers!!! Over in Billings myself, and yes indeed our shopping malls are shit-tacular. We have great breweries though… Bout to go indulge soon. Happy St. Patricks day! Wish I was in Butte 😦

    #7 Ah, the tight rolled jeans. So funny today.

    • Paul

      I dont think they're rolled. I think those bad boys are elastic.

      • Ryno

        No they are tight rolled.

    • Eric

      Maybe he wants you to make a donation to the coast guard youth auxiliary?

  • James

    Any UK Chivers need only go to Bournemouth or PooleTODAY to experience this.

    • nemesis

      Don't forget Slough, Swindon and Luton.

    • Pat Mcgroin

      Looks like New Jersey circa 2011 to me

  • ETS

    WTF was up with hair then. I look back at it now and don't understand how I ever thought it looked good.

    • xXbeermonkeyXx

      • yoselahonda

        There wasn't a Starbucks at each entrance to the mall so they all still had the morning frizzle going.

  • ssf

  • salverai

    #15 sums it all up. nothing like being in the 90's stuck in the 80's.

    • Wicked

  • Erich Backhus


    The SR2 was AWESOME!

    • Don_Aguelo

      It was never awesome. Not even in the 90's.

      The ride was a huge "meh".

      • Green doodoo

        Wrong…that shit was dope, unless you were 42 around that time like your photo suggests. For a kid…the simulator was badass. I wish they were still around!

  • gaz

    #13 is that steve irwin?

  • Sussexmatt

    Jesus that looks like London in 2011, what the hell is with reviving horrible looks like all of the above in an "ironic" way… kind of just makes you look like a douchebag.
