I'm not sure if I ever schilled James Lileks before. Long story short, he's a journalist from my homeland of Minnesota who covers lots of ephemera from Minnesota and beyond, including a lot of midcentury pop culture.



But the point of this post is his entry for today, a page from a 1986 Sears catalog. Lots of solid-color shirts and sweatshirts. "Not just for Yangs, but for Coms, too! If you get that reference, congrats." I got the reference, that's for sure. Of course, "The Omega Glory" features Yangs and Kohms and they didn't wear pastel clothing, that was more of a TNG-era colonist thing. I know it's not an exact match, but the first thing that came to mind was Kevin Uxbridge.
