Barack Obama Sons of Liberty t-shirt

By admin on June 9th, 2008

obamatee.jpgWhen you look at Gordon Brown’s face you realise there hasn’t been a politician as t-shirt friendly as Barack Obama in a long while. Add his vague slogans about change, which lend themselves well to t shirt captions and you have a prime candidate for an ironic t-shirt. Sons of Liberty were one of the quickest off the mark with this Back to the Future inspired top.

If you love the 80′s and Barack Obama, then you’re probably looking for your credit card right now, so there’s no need to convince you. Just bear in mind that if Barack suffers a George McGovern type defeat, then these shirts will become cruel jokes.

Hammer pants 2008 style?

By admin on May 6th, 2008

baggytight.jpgApparently, these jeans aren’t a joke. I’m tempted to think that this may be a PR stunt. No one could actually think that these look good. Seeing as they’re being sold at Karmaloop (although it states that it’s out of stock whenever you try to look at them) Soulful Commandoe clearly did.

To call these carrot top jeans – as the company who make them do – would be a gross understatement. They look like two completely different pairs of jeans cut in half and sewn together. I think we have the 80′s trend to thank for this. Having raided everything worth wearing from that decade, people have resorted to denim Hammer pants.

Onitsuka Tiger and Mini do the business

By admin on January 14th, 2008


The 80′s trend started out as one movement
but then fragmented into whatever you took to be 80′s. On one side was the
coloured jeans 80′s trend, thankfully that was short lived. On the other side
was the 80′s as seen in the film “The
“, starring down-to-earth cockney superbloke Danny Dyer. If you’re
looking to complete your superbloke look then these Onitsuka Tiger trainers
should do the job. Or the business, if you’re into bad puns.

Inspired by Mini, Onitsuka Tiger have
sought to bring all the best elements from the car to your feet. In case you’re
wondering, that doesn’t mean these are the adult form of Heelys. They’re available
in cream, black and brown, so you should be able to find one that matches a
Sergio Tacchini track jacket.
