Oh the 80s…..such a wonderful decade. Anyone that grew up in the 80s has a special place in their heart for it.
I don’t know if it is just because that was our era growing up, or that it was such a cool time. The bottom line is there are so many great things about the 80s that I miss every day.
For me it’s easy to think about some things that scream 80s that I just don’t want to let go of. So, whether it is the fabulous TV-shows, cartoons, music or just our favourite things we loved that we don’t want to forget. I have found a way to keep a connection with those special things very. Today I wanted to talk about my love of the 80s and share how I have kept those memories alive. When I found out that companies were making retro tee shirts dedicated to all things 80s, I think I literally jumped up and down. What better way to bring our happy memories to life.
Yes you heard me correctly! You can buy tee shirts that are completely dedicated to the 80s. All your favourite things displayed on the front of a tee shirt. How cool is that!
The thing I love about these shirts, is the second that you put the shirt on, it instantly takes you back to that moment in time that you remember. Just like when you listen to a song from your past and how it can instantly take you back there. It brings you those feelings, smells and thoughts that connect you to it. Wearing these tee shirts does the exact same thing.
Maybe you were a big gamer……HAHA Gamer… I mean you loved Donkey Kong. Serious business! Or maybe you love wrestling from back in day and want a little Bret Hart on your chest. They have a shirt with that.
But honestly whatever 80s memory you are trying to brings you the best memories, I swear they will have it.
Our look back into the past makes us feel joyful and happy. Who, doesn’t want that. I sure do!
Anyone that knows me well, knows how much I love the 80s and still to this day hold much of that fashion close to my heart.
What kind of shirts am I talking about. Just to give you an example of some amazing shirts you can get, here is few highlights. Just to get your mouth watering. HAHA!

Believe me when I say this is the tip of the iceberg! They have way more to choose from and not just 1 style or color tons. They may have 10 Flintstones designs to choose from in an array of colors. 80s shopping gone crazy!
But where can I get these tee shirts, I can’t just walk into store and find anything remotely like what I am describing there. SO WHERE?
Where to find them
There are many things I love about the internet. One of them is just simply the access we have to reach far and wide to find unique and never forgotten items that we are looking for. Things that without the internet, we would never have access to buy.
I know you are thinking well what is new about the internet, it has been around since the late 80s and early 90s. Like anything to do with the internet, things continue to change and grow daily.
Just thing about how many people now shop online. By the end of 2019 they estimated 1.8 billion people worldwide were shopping online. 63% of all shopping is initiated online.
That is a ton of people and a pretty large group of people searching the web. Including myself, I love to shop online.
When you have that many people shopping online looking for absolutely everything under the sun, your choices will instantly expand quickly. People see a market for something and start a business. The great entrepreneur way.
So now that I have told you all that, what does that have to do with these tee shirts. Well did you know that you buy these shirts online. There are websites created specifically with this product in mind.
There are a few great sites to shop on, that offer amazing choices. They make it super easy to browse through their stock one category at a time.
Who to buy from
When it comes to looking for the best sites to buy from and that offer the best selection, I have 2 of my favourites to share with you.
The first one is called 80s Tees and their website is called 80stees.com. The website vibe is very retro and cool. They have 18 categories to choose from one the left-hand side. You make your category selection and then you pick whatever title you want. Once inside your make your selection and you will see all the design choices that they have for that title.
Once you make your selection, printing the shirt takes 3-7 business days to make before it is shipped. All shirts are printed in the US. All shirts are made defect free. The prices vary, but start around $35 and up from there.
80sTees offers free shipping worldwide with any purchases over $50 USD. If your purchase is under that, then you would have to pay $5.47 USD in shipping costs.
When your shirt arrives, if you don’t like it, they have a no questions ask return policy.
At this point you are free to browse through their selection of Ladies, Men, and Juniors. Although they don’t have a specific Big and Tall selection, some designs due come in sizes up to 3XL
Although they don’t have as great of selection as 80s tees, they offer some unique titles. They still have a pretty darn good selection to choose from when it comes down to it.
Again if you get your shirt and you are not happy, you have 30 days to ship it back to them for a refund. Or if you wish, you can exchange the tee shirt for a different size or color and they will ship you out the new one.
They also offer 10% off coupon when you make your 1st purchase.
Tee shirt wrap up
I love both of their names, they are so easy to remember. Both sites offer a great experience for the shopper.
The unique thing I did find about both sites is normally if you are shopping online for a tee shirt, you find the shirt then pick the color and size. With these 2 sites, the shirt with the logo you like, only comes in that specific color. They don't offer other color selections.
In this case in my opinion, it just makes your shirt and logo choice more unique. You won't see that shirt in 10 other colors. It's sort of like they did that to make the shirt more original.
The other super cool thing about both websites is that for some titles they offer long sleeve shirts options and bunny hugs aka (hoodies) HAHA! That is just amazing.
Now if you are looking for strictly music, you will need to go the 80s Tees website. They have a fabulous selection of great 80s music to choose from.
When it comes to shopping for your retro tee shirt whether your a Tomboy or not, get browsing now. You will be amazed with the choices you can find. The sky really is the limit. Time to get your 80s groove back!!
