The Smiths 80s Band T-shirts

If you were asked to name one of the most influential British bands of the 80s, then The Smiths would certainly be in the top five for a good many of you, I would imagine. The alternative rock/Indie pop band from Manchester may have only been active for five years (1982-87), but in that relatively short period they managed to create a pretty substantial following. The band still appear to have a big fanbase judging by the number of T-shirts that are sold through my website simplyeighties.com

Best places to buy The Smiths T-shirts

Amazon UK have an extensive range of designs, including the most popular Tee featured at the top of this page, as well as designs adorned with the band's frontman Morrissey. If you're from the U.S. then you'll be delighted to know that Amazon.com stock a range of Tees, too, although it's not as ample as the UK store.

A more substantial range of brand new, "Buy it now" T-shirts can be found at ebay, although, once again, if you're browsing in the British Isles then you're probably going to see a bigger range of designs. Many quality suppliers sell their wares through ebay these days, so you'll probably be able to pick up a bargain here.

If you would like a more quirky design than the more popular choices, then try a search for the newest arrivals at Amazon UK as this usually throws up a few different ideas.

You'll find many unique and exclusive by independent artists at Redbubble.com who ship worldwide. Use the following link;

The "I would go out tonight but I haven't got a stitch to wear" Charming Man lyrics T-shirt is particularly amusing.

The Smiths album covers baseball shirt for men
The Smiths Record Covers Baseball Shirt 
This baseball shirt features nine vinyl record covers and offers something a little different to the standard short-sleeved shirts. It's sold by a company calling themselves Morrissey and The Smiths at Amazon (they sound official, although I have no idea whether they are or not) and they have three pages of high quality merchandise including heavy weight shirts, bags and posters.

The Smiths Tour 1983 Daffodils T-shirt

Now, just about any fan of The Smiths will, no doubt, remember that performance on The Tube in 1984 where Morrissey can be seen with a bunch of daffodils in his back pocket. Therefore, this shirt featuring daffodils is a nice touch.

Here are some more of my top picks...

Well, I hope I've provided you with some decent designs. You can see many more retro rock and pop band T-shirts ideas at my website.

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Embed from Getty Images Debbie Harry Fridge Magnet Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today. Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on! I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier! After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave s

Create an 80s Aerobics Fashion Look

Let's Get Physical 80s Workout Costume During the early 1980s, it felt like the whole world had gone aerobics crazy. Females everywhere donned leotards, leggings, headbands and legwarmers, and some were even on rollerskates! Pop stars and actresses were responsible for starting the craze. Olivia Newton-John started a headband fad after the release of here raunchy Physical video in 1981, and the song quickly became an aerobics anthem. And just about every home had a Jane Fonda workout video in their collection - often proudly on display on a book shelf in the living room, or carefully placed on a coffee table for all to see. However, contrary to popular belief, not everyone was wearing neon. Take a look back at the old workout videos and you'll see a whole range of colours and styles being worn. Some leotards were shiny, some had stripes and others were pastel. Zebra stripes, leopard print, and splatter paint designs were also worn by some. There were often (but not always)

Create Your Own E.T. The Extra Terrestrial Costume

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial was the highest-grossing movie of the 80s, and many regard it as one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time. The Spielberg classic tells the story of a lonely boy named Elliot who becomes friend with a stranded extra terrestrial who needs to get back home - we all remember that classic "E.T. phone home" moment, don't we? If you're looking for a unique costume idea for a 1980s, sci-fi or film and TV party or event, or maybe Halloween, then an E.T. costume should fit the bill for both men or women. Adult Elliot Costume (US) Adult ET Costume (UK ) Now, you can buy a ready-made ET outfit from Amazon UK or Amazon.com. However, although it's convenient, it's also pretty expensive, and you can very easily create your own costume for a fraction of the cost. You'll notice that ET is wearing a red hoodie and blue jeans in the picture above for the UK costume. However, in the film, it is Elliot who wears this, and
