As posted under the blog post, I don't really have nostalgia for a fashion era that occurred during my lifetime, but I DO have nostalgia for a cultural 'uniform'. Father emigrated from Germany to the US in the late '50's and soon met Mother. I was born a year after they married. There were trips over the years - by boat, and then by air, to visit Oma and Opa. There always seemed to be a festival of some sort, and I always had a proper dirndle. There were no visits after Opa, and Oma died (when I was a teen), but I do have nostalgia for a white shirt with puffy sleeves and a full skirt.

DH's folks emigrated from Scotland to Canada. DH was a third, secret passenger! The family tartan is the Buchanan plaid. Although it is a very ALGO tartan, I feel sentimental about it, and always have at least one garment - even if just a scarf - so I can 'represent'.

Do you have nostalgia for cultural garb?
