80s T-shirts: Design and Designs

The 80 was filled with a wide selection of designs for men. There were men who opted for the preppy look while some of them converted into the ‘Miami Vice’ style of dressing. Not any matter which design they choose from, one thing was in common, the 1980s gave birth to some of the popular trends that can still be seen in the fashion industry these times. 

Some of the most popular designs for 1980s t-shirts include:

? Hawaiian tops were popular in the 1980s and were often worn under a sport coat or alone. Just about all Hawaiian shirts were worn even without a necktie.

? Having an everyday clothing hidden under a custom made jacket was also a fad in the 1980s. This look was made famous by Don Johnson with the hit Tv shows ‘Miami Vice’.

? Michael Knutson was also a popular men fashion trend setter in the 1980s. Extra-large shirts with slouch shoulder blades, puffy sleeves and leather studded jackets were popular male products. Thanks to the ‘King of Pop’!

? Leather bomb jackets were in the rage with this decade. Known as a component of daily wear, leather jackets just made an appearance anywhere from the business workplace to disco hubs.

? The ‘preppy look’ was also a very familiar trend in the 1980s. Men often wore button down oxford shirts, cardigan vest, argyle sweaters and polo shirts with dog collars buttoned up. Many of these styles may still be noticed in today’s fashion.

? Men using sweaters over their neck tied loosely on the neck was also a common scenario in the 80s. This was also known as the ‘ultimate preppy look’.
