Fashion SHIRTS to play live.. where to get them???


Hey guys

The fact is I would like to know if you know any shop or clothing store where you could find some cool stuff for playing live. I mean.. mainly this old style fashion shirts like at the 80´s.

The reason is I´m looking for some time some long sleeve shirts enough cool and elegant to play live. I love this kind of white and black models but I couldn´t find any in my city or previous research.
This colors combine perfectly with all guitars I have and they are really cool.

So if somebody knows where to find some of this shirts or others in the old 80´s style, please let me know.

Here are some examples.





CheersĦĦ

Yes... womens stores or vintage clothing stores....

I mean maybe any of you know any shop spcialized in this kind of stuff for musicians etc... I think heard of one of these in LA but can not remember the names.. was decades ago... so I was thinking that now maybe some shop at the bay or internet...

I will keep searching..

The bad thing is that there´s no vintage clothing shops here in Spain... that´s one of other reason I was asking to all of you.

Thanks anyway.. if somebody knows one please post it here.

CheersĦĦ

Re: Fashion SHIRTS to play live.. where to get them???


Search around on the auction sites if you want vintage. Otherwise, hit the malls, and yeah, look through the gals clothing. But there has got to be some kind of trendy fashion store somewhere around you with sketchy clothes. Just get out there and browse around.

You may have been thinking about http://www.lip-service.com/. They used to have awesome stage clothes back in the day. Had a bunch myself, but most of the big hair bands had at least some Lip Service gear. They're still around. Looks like they may be a little more goth and a little less glam these days.

Re: Fashion SHIRTS to play live.. where to get them???


lol ahh, you had it coming, and now you've taken the heat from these guys, I know exactly the type of shirts you mean, and I have also been looking for them for years since too. I used to have a fabulous Royal blue silky shirt with gold antique-floral motifs all over it, haha... Rock on, posers clothes!! Petrucci had some fab shirts back in the Images & Words days... just checkout the video for Take The Time. He gets through an entire wardrobe in under 6 minutes lol

Kohls carries a line from a company called Eighty Eight, there stuff is not as flashy but good for the times we're in. I get compliments on these shirts all the time...



Or maybe they then laugh their @sses off when I leave.

Re: Fashion SHIRTS to play live.. where to get them???


I don't think you'll find much quite like the photos you posted. Even with the 80's fashion revival, stuff fits a lot tighter these days.

Much of the stuff similar that I've seen is still in the higher end stores (Nordstrom) and shirts are in the $200+ realm. However, some fashion-forward stores have some items at more reasonable prices - http://www.buckle.com/product/produc...=0&N=42+26+381

Back in the 80's there was a store in NYC- very famous for rock star clothing.
Jumping Jack Flash. My whole band got outfits there.

These mostly sell tee shirts, but there is some cool other stuff too.

My mom said that 80s jeans are coming back. She showed me this Calvin Klein ad in one of her magazines that had these models wearing 80s looking jeans (those tighter, light-colored ones with that certain cut). LOL, what if that style became the norm again

Re: Fashion SHIRTS to play live.. where to get them???


Ok, this is probably the exact opposite of what you're looking to buy but I get all my stage shirts from either Gama Go or Worn Free.

http://www.gama-go.com/home.php?cat=263

http://www.wornfree.com/ (in fact I'm wearing this one right now: http://www.wornfree.com/Frank-Zappa-...7&category=124 )

I also wear this one a lot, but only one person has ever 'got' it. http://www.founditemclothing.com/t-s...ton-shirt.html
