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

Kia-Ora 80s TV Advert - I'll be your dog!

Anyone who watched British TV during the 1980s (or went to the cinema) will remember the Kia-Ora crows advert featuring the slogan "I'll be your dog".  You may well remember the Kia-Ora drinks in plastic cartons which the usherette used to sell in the cinema. They also sold them in our local youth club, although sometimes it was Tip Top orange, which kind of tasted like the carton.  The advert itself was pretty bizarre but also a lot of fun. It featured a child wearing a straw sunhat and carrying his belongings over his shoulder, while walking in the hot sun carrying an empty glass. Suddenly, a dog appears from nowhere and tips Kia-Ora orange into his glass. The sun wrings itself out into the glass to top it up.  A crow is following the child and shouts "Kia-Ora!". The child replies "It's too orangey for crows, It's just for me and my dog." The crow replies "I'll be your dog!", and then starts barking. As they continue to walk, an

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
