80sTees.com saves customers the hassle of scouring vintage clothing stores and digging up neighbor's time capsules to find 80s-style t-shirts and socks. The online store teems with short sleeve t-shirts and tank tops bearing throwback company slogans, movie quotes, superhero images, and musicians. Customers can walk the streets wearing the 7Up Dot on their chest, or attend a concert in a shirt emblazoned with Jem cartoon characters. Though focused on mostly past fashions, the store also carries a line of tees with more modern images, including 90s bands and recent movies.
The company was started in 1999 by 80s fan Kevin Stecko, who decided to start selling vintage t-shirts on eBay after graduating from college. After the thrill of selling a He-Man shirt for $30, he decided to open his own 80s memorabilia store online in 2000, and the company skyrocketed from there. Now with a team of nearly 20 employees, 80sTees.com outfits everyone from pop culture geeks to celebrities.
