80s and Retro T-Shirt Ideas

for Men and Women

Katharine Hamnett designed or inspired T-Shirts that displayed a simple message, and they became hugely popular back in the 80s! Frankie Goes To Hollywood were telling us all to Relax (their PR manager "borrowed" the Hamnett design) and Wham were telling us to Choose Life.

On this page you will find a great range of T-Shirts that either look exactly like they did back in the 80s, or simply suggest that you want to go back to the great decade again!

We don't sell T-shirts at simplyeighties, but all of the retro T-Shirts/tops below are available through links to the web's biggest most trustworthy store, Amazon, where you'll find all the top suppliers competing to give you some of the lowest prices on the web.



Hopefully, the following photos will bring you some inspiration and lots of ideas on what retro 80s t-shirt you can wear either casually or to an 80s event or party.

Atari Logo T-Shirt - 14 Colours!
Atari's success was very erratic during the eighties, to say the least! But the company created some very memorable video games including Asteroids, Breakout and ET The Extra Terrestrial. Yeah, I was joking about the last one, but once you owned an Atari console or computer (like me) it was hard not to become a huge fan. You've been there, you've played their games, but have you worn the T-shirt? You can now!

I adore this T-shirt and that face represents a now iconic image of the 70s, and this shirt (available for men and women) is ideal for wearing at a retro or 70s party. It would also make a great retro gift idea.

This premium quality T-shirt is available in 7 colours and all adult ladies sizes. Show your support for the Goddess of pop!
Ska / 2 Tone T-Shirt

I really miss the ska revival of the late 70s and early 80s, which introduced us to some superb bands such as Madness, The Beat and The Selector, to name but a few.
