80's clothes, where do I find them, the loft is bare?
« on: May 02, 2004, 20:57:19 PM »
OK, I have an eighties party coming up. I'm a bloke (single) so I need some help as I'm crap at sorting things like this out. What do I wear and where do I find it. I thought 80's fashion was making a comeback but 1) I can't really remember what blokes wore and 2) nothing looks very 80's in the shops to me. Probably fair to say I'm in the 1983-1986 camp if possible.

Any advice gratefully received.

Black leather jacket, or donkey jacket , white round neck T shirt prefrebly with some crass comments and DMs - optional accessories sunglasses and studs on the leather Jacket.

Alternatively army surplus gear.

in both casee - as Tashwhu says - Charity shops look best.

Don't forget to take some cars so you can dance on top of them as well!
