80s Casuals is the result of the labours of two average lads from the North West of England, it takes its inspiration from the football terrace culture of the 1980’s. The brand was born in 2003 and is heavily influenced by the music, films and football of that era.
The 1980’s casual style is considered by the menswear brand to be the last great revolution in men’s fashion in the United Kingdom. It was during this time that many boundaries of social dress code were broken, and the “casual” not being afraid of experimenting with fashions and styles from other walks of life. It was these innovators, who wore clothes not designed with them in mind that came to define the terrace casual look.
Today, 80s Casuals aims to produce clothes that have the legacy of the terrace state of mind, whilst being mindful of classic looks and details and producing clothes that are available at a fair and reasonable price.
In particular the brand produces a wide and varied range of casual t-shirts that are made by two of the most reputable manufacturers in the UK, using the highest quality materials and techniques available, for example the printing used to create the designs on the t-shirts is produced using seven different inks (which is the maximum possible, using today’s technology), this is then blended through a silk screen and dyed right into the fabric to give the t-shirt the longest possible life-span and highest quality look, this also ensures the printed image is the sharpest possible.
80s Casuals produces t-shirts with two different fitting styles, the brit-fit and the Italian-fit. The brit-fit is an oversize fitting and it is recommended that if you choose this style then you order one size under what you would normally go for. On the other hand, the Italian-fit is a more regular fit and is recommended that you order your usual size in this style.
In terms of pricing the t-shirts are very reasonably priced at around the £30 mark, which seems appropriate from the independent label that doesn’t try to sell the dream of lounging on a yacht in Monte Carlo or sipping espresso in Florence, instead it aims to design clothes for the lad at the match or the bloke at the bar.
