Retro 90’s: Will-inspired!

Alright you silly fools, we’re back and it’s FRESH PRINCE FRIDAY! We went on a temporary hiatus last week because of a sudden perceived lack of interest (still debating whether or not we should even have this column) but for now at least, I thought I might as well continue it for the sake of… continuity.

Included are the worst outfit to ever grace the set of Fresh Prince, as well as a FRESH pair of jammies that I guess Will sleeps in. But don’t rush me, constantly screenshotting a television series is time consuming! Also, keep an eye out for styles that will give a sneak peak into the Thousand Years Fall 2011 snapback.

Ah, the classic power suit.
