Do you remember these? Back in the 80’s I was dating a guy, who I wouldn’t say was really stylish, but was open to buying some hip items to upgrade his style. At the time, Members Only jackets were pretty safe, I think even my dad had one. M.O.’s motto was “when you put it on, something happens”.  Now what guy wouldn’t go for that?

I think the hotness of the Member Only jackets soon faded away. Instead of feeling cool with them on your back, you were now having fingers pointed and smirking at you. Fickle fashion, shame on you. Soon after, the company went bankrupt and you could find plenty of M.O’s at your local thrift store (I’ve got Devo playing on Spotify, as I am typing this. Classic). The brand was resurrected in 2003, and the women’s line came on board in 2004.

Just the other day I was browsing my local Urban Outfitters, and I saw this pretty little number. Of course being a sucker for pink, it caught my eye. While I was looking at it closely, I realized it was a women’s Members Only jacket. Guess what, I liked it and immediately tried it on. I did notice that the iconic label was not on the front of the jacket, and the classic epaulettes were missing (awwwh).

There are more than the basic styles available by M.O., and now I have a whole new appreciation of these classic 80’s jackets. Check these M.O.’s out!
