The second in the trilogy, this time they’re actually going to the future and Marty and Doc visit the year 2015, when highways are replaced with ‘airways’ and flying cars, and where the youth rides on hooverboards. What the DeLorean was for the first episode, the Nike MAG is for the second, with its automatic power laces and fluorescent lights. The other super-future-high-tech item is the ‘size-adjusting fit’ jacket that Marty rocks and that has an automatic drying functionality. One thing they predicted right though was the Macintosh computer in the shopping window, now regarded as an “antique computer” from 1984 and the JVC “Super VHS” videocamera, although it might be a hard task selling the latter nowadays.
However, they don’t stay in the future and pay another visit to the year 1955 where we meet Biff again. Probably his Levi’s 501 jeans used for the movie have been a late ’70′s/early 80′s version of the selvage type. Yet you can still tell from the plea at the side of them that they have been stocked and are made of the rigid fabric the good old Levi’s used to have. And that’s interesting for Levi’s stopped making their jeans with selvage-fabric in 1983, because of the Cone Mills factory that replaced all of their shuttle looms producing selvage fabrics. That said, Biff has a refined sense of style, sporting a real nice pair of dark-brown suede oxford shoes underneath his denim.
