I remember as a kid the selection of t-shirts was limited to whatever heat transfers that were available in the binders on the counter of the store. It wasn’t until I was in college that it seemed like most of those stores disappeared.
Thankfully, times have changed and there are shirts available for almost every pop culture interest.
And with 80sTees,
I get my nostalgia and a healthy selection of some of the coolest shirts on Earth.
Plus, 80sTees also carries socks, costumes, ugly Christmas sweaters, hoodies and more.
These are a few of my recent favorites.
Oh, Good Grief! This Charlie Brown shirt reproduces the inimitable line work of the late Charles Schulz’s alter ego. Whether dishing out 5¢ for Psychiatric Help, pondering life’s little mysteries leaning on a wall, or looking for love with a Little Red Headed girl, there’s a bit of Charlie Brown in all of us. With softball season coming up, this shirt is a perfect addition to any wardrobe providing you can get it over your big round blockhead.
From Hollis, Queens, New York, the mighty Run-D.M.C. consisted of Reverend Run, D.M.C. and Jam Master Jay. One of the most influential hip-hop acts in history, Run-D.M.C. rocked the mic starting in 1981 and their sound and style is still embraced and copies today.
They are the kings of rock. There are none higher. They are baddest of the bad and the coolest of the cool.
This shirt is instant cool and the perfect accessory for a hot summer.
I love the smell of garbage in the morning… Everyone’s favorite grouch, Oscar, looms large in this fantastic shirt celebrating bitterness and all things angry. I’m still angry that they changed him from orange to green. At least he’s got his pet worm Slimey to keep him company. So buy this shirt and make it pretty by spreading some mud on it and spilling coffee all over it. Now scram!
This Star Wars logo shirt isn’t clumsy or random like a golf shirt. This is a more elegant shirt from a more civilized age. This shirt perfectly captures the power of Star Wars, missing only the 20th Century Fox opening fanfare. Whether you’re a farmboy, a crazy old wizard, a scruffy looking nerf herder or a Wookiee that pulls droids arms from their sockets, this t-shirt is a must have and the best fashion statement to avoid the Death Sentence on any number of systems.
From the bowels of the FBI comes the shirt that reveals everything.
Or nothing at all.
Before the truth comes back this year, this shirt shows the mouthbreathers that you’ve been nutty for The X-Files so far back that you could actually follow what was going on with Mulder’s sister. So grab this shirt, kick back with the latest issue of The Lone Gunman Newsletter and get ready to be manipulated by the musings of the Cigarette Smoking Man. Trust no one (but me).
They might not be the Alpha Betas, but chances are if you’re reading this site, neither are you. So, let’s all play nice and celebrate being a Tri-Lamb by wearing this shirt celebrating their founding brotherhood on the Adams College campus: Lewis Skolnick, Gilbert Lowe, Arnold Poindexter, Harold Wormser, Dudley “Booger” Dawson, Takashi Toshiro and Lamar Latrelle. And in the spirit of uniting factions; the Forces of Geek stand with the Forces of Nerd.
Sure, this one’s listed as Sheldon Cooper’s shirt (since the character likely wore this on an episode of The Big Bang Theory), but this shirt is pure dynamic duo. Featuring the Caped Crusaders, Batman, The Dark Knight Detective and Robin, The Boy Wonder, this amazing retro shirt captures Gotham’s crime-fighting duo ready to burst into action to fight any member of their rogues gallery of villains. Holy Fashion Statement!
