At the paninari times I was a kid and we had only 1 real "paninaro" among our friends and he had fucking everything of a certain brand, wtf... he was very rich, but being a kid he looked weird... wearing an El Charro belt, Best Company sweatshirts, Burlington socks, Moncler jacket, Timberland shoes, Wtf, lol... while I was wearing my grandma's hand-made wool socks ahaha really, even for the summertime.
Our grandma used to hand-make clothes (and an aunt too, the other grandma too, there were many "home" jobs), it reminds me of the best book about Oasis, Getting High by "Britalian" Paolo Hewitt ("Fuori di testa"), when he tells about them moaning because in their family they had to do everything fucking "home made" ahaha like the marmalade, instead of buying it like the other normal families.
At the times when Bonehead was an altar boy and was drinking the wine of the church, lol.
Owning a a country house too, we still make a lot of home-made things, food, in 2015, it's like Stone Island aha
Also, when I was going to a birthday party of kids, I never gave a gift, but always fucking BISCUITS ahahaha, because my mama had the mentality of saving money. Nowadays with this long crisis, it should be all about saving money. I was the only one giving a pack of biscuits and they looked at me in a strange way ahaha "well...thank you eh" ahahahaha I don't regret that, they've all become a bunch of assholes ahaha and now I think about that as if I used to mock them.
Apart from these stories, still about brands I remember for the Oasis gig in Lucca (2002) I recognised two English girls going to an Oasis gig because they had the British military brand Kangol.
Pet Shop Boys even wrote a song called "Paninaro", with video set in Milan.
