Trotters Independent Trading Co. T-shirt

I thought I would share with you a very amusing Only Fools and Horses themed T-shirt which I stumbled upon whilst updating my 80s T-shirts page on my Simply Eighties website. You have the opportunity to officially join Del Boy's global import and export empire with this lovely jubbly Trotters Independent Trading Co. T-shirt - you know it makes sense!

Black T-shirt with Yellow reliant Van graphic

The black T-shirt has been designed by the UK based Cloud City 7, and is available on Amazon UK for men. It comes in sizes from small to XXL, and features the iconic yellow Reliant three-wheeler van complete with a personalised CUSHTY 1 number plate and the Trotters logo with the hilarious "New York, Paris, Peckham" text that was displayed on the side of the van.

A kids T-shirt with the same design is also available for ages 3 to 13 years.

However, don't rush off just to buy it just yet, as I want to show you a couple more designs with the same theme.

One of these tees would make a great gift idea for a fan of the classic BBC sitcom, and will also make a great conversation starter! They're also ideal for conventions and 80s themed parties and events.

The much-loved comedy series aired from 1981 to 1991, with no less than sixteen special Christmas episodes being shown until 2003. There is still a huge fan base, and a 40th anniversary convention is taking place this year on 21st and 22nd May 2022 at the Sharnbrook Hotel in Bedford.

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 or 90s Acid House - Raver Look

With its squelching bass sounds (often created using a Roland TB-303 bass synth) and minimalist production, the sound of acid house first became popular in the latter half of the 80s, starting in 1987. The media were more focused on the illegal raves and psychedelic drugs, but in reality, a good many young folk enjoyed dancing to the new sound in nightclubs (including myself) without going anywhere near any drugs or illegal raves. What is synonymous with the acid house scene is the smiley face logo, and the T-shirt featuring the logo, along with tie dye and psychedelic clothing, and bucket hats which became popular with ravers. Baggy over the knee shorts were popular with men. Bandanas and dungarees/dungaree shorts were also worn by both sexes. Some ravers also had  yellow whistles . In the early 90s,  white overalls , hooded anoracks and  yellow dust masks with an "E" , smiley face or radiation symbol also became part of the rave scene. Initially, the dust masks we

An 80s Tennis Player Costume? You Cannot Be Serious!

While most people opt for a pop star theme when dressing up for an 80s party or event, one option that is a little more original is to dress like an 80s tennis player. The costumes I'm about to show are obviously based on John McEnroe, and I'm dead serious! The short-tempered tennis star became infamous for his confrontational behaviour towards the umpire during the 1980s, screaming "Answer my question! The question, jerk!" (when he angrily threw his racket at the juice cart) and "You can't be serious man, you cannot be serious!" when he thought the umpire had made a bad call about the ball being out. He was often booed by the crowds for his rants, but it was hugely entertaining to watch! Embed from Getty Images The look above is the one you should aim for, and this is the most iconic. So let's take a look at the fancy dress costume options available...     The white T-shirt and shorts outfit with red and blue stripes is based on McEn
