Funny 80s T-shirt Ideas

Everyone has a sense of fun (well, maybe not my neighbours but that's another story) and a T-shirt that brings a smile to the face of those who feast their eyes upon it brightens up not only their day, but your own day, too. These funny tees have a 1980s theme and are ideal for wearing to the many retro music festivals and events that are taking place this year - 80s Rewind is one such example.

80s Fashion Sucks Funny T-shirt
This T-shirt contradicts itself by stating that 80s fashion sucks using the classic Katherine Hamnett block letter design from the 1980s. It's a clever idea and this tee is available for both men and women in a range of colours at They ship worldide. Just choose your currency at the bottom of the screen on the site.
