    80's party (costume) - NEED HELP!!!

    Ok, 80's party this weekend at a friend's place, and the clock is ticking quickly, me with no ideas on what to wear!

    I did the standard Value Village scour yesterday, but came up empty handed......seems finding something for a guy, that's distinctly and easily recognized as 80's garb, is tougher than expected.

    I thought about a light blue or white linen suit (Miami Vice), but again, came up short.

    Has anyone got any creative, cheap, somewhat easy suggestions???

    I grew up in the 80's, so it's not like I'm clueless, just finding out that 30 year old outfits are not as readily available I thought.......70's, EASY, 80's, not so

    HELP!!!

    Give Ron a shout, I bet he's still got that awesome leather jacket for sale. And you can pick up some George Michael CDs, too!

    Great idea, except I do not want any outerwear, this is an indoor party, so comfort is important.

    No mesh shirts either, these are friends, I would not subject them to the likes of me in anything transparent.

    Check Bandito's closet, he never left the 80's.

    EDIT: Leather bomber jacket, t-shirt and jeans. Button up shirt with skinny tie (wear a regular one backwards and tuck the fat part into your shirt). Hat - fedora style. Baseball jacket with sweatpants and runners. That's it, I'm out.

    I can find lots of pictures of 80's clothes, but the challenge is finding the clothes themselves.

    Simple.

    White bath robe, ride belt tied... red boxing gloves, red tube socks over your shoes to simulate boxers... and hockey tape BALBOA on the back.

    Now that is how you rock 80's at a party. Plus for bonus, no underwear. If you get real je ne sais juiced up, you can start flashing some of the chicks your freshly waxed sacko.

    It's all good times.

    Alright, you can borrow my Boa Constrictor snake skin cowboy boots. Just promise to wear your jeans "INSIDE" the boots.
