what is 80's thrash please?...
i grew up in the 80's and i don't ever recall anyone calling any sort of music that was made during that period--- 'thrash' ...
i'm curious to know your perspective on this...
thanks in advance...



i find it humorous that you call it your 'streetstyle'...
as opposed to what?...your sidewalk style? or your indoor style?...
what about just calling it your style?...period...


to be clear-
i believe the term street style only applies when referring to a group of random people wearing something in public...
not when you are referring to yourself...

This is 80's thrash metal, sometimes referred to as Bay Area Thrash Metal (but since some bands are not really from Bay Area I do prefer the first terminology):

It's my informal style. That's it. Better than "streetstyle" and just "style". I was referring to my "everyday" style.

I wear my Dark Side of the Moon t-shirt....to sleep. My favorite Chicago t-shirt shrunk but I would rarely wear that out. I got it at a concert and keep it but won't wear it.

I feel that most band tees, with the exception of the vintage concert tee, look childish. It always reminds me of stuff highschoolers wore to find friends who like what they like. Unless you're actually in highschool, I would refrain from the band tee. They are so common, every mall in America has a Hot Topic. You used to have to actually go to a concert to get a band tee back in the day.

I have KISS and Pink Floyd tshirts with modern or weird cuts.
Back in the 90s I collected concert tshirts but I could only find XXL sizes so I wore them to sleep until they were too ratty and torn.

I agree with this. It looks silly wearing a Rolling Stones tee if you can't even name a few of their songs

Yes. Even though I don't deny their fashion potential, I ONLY wear t-shirts of bands I actually know and love. Call me a music snob if you want, but if there's something that irks me is seeing someone wearing a t-shirt of some band you love, saying something like "oh cool, you also like XXX?" and getting an utterly confused "uh, who?!" as an answer.

Yeah, it's a pet peeve of mine.

Oh yes! I wear my David Bowie, George Michael and Boy George tshirts all the time and with a great pride. My sister also has many band tees (from Bon Jovi, Mötley Crüe and Guns n Roses), sometimes I borrow the GnR ones. And now I'm really craving for Duran Duran tshirt.

I bought an Iron Maiden tshirt at their concert @ London´s O2 this past August.
I was mad though cause all the prints I wanted were out of stock on woman small sizes

Plus two tour shirts, one from the Kenny Chesney 06 and Madonna's Sticky and Sweet Tour ;D

Sure, I used to wear them to school or nights out with friends... but I've been wearing them less these days, at least outdoors. Mostly I just wear them around the house now.

Let's see... I have Oasis, The Verve, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (these have been passed down by my ex boyfriend lol)

Also, one of The White Stripes, and one of Mazzy Star.

I'd still like a Neil Young or Rolling Stones one. I'll probably get them if I ever stumble across some

I wear band shirts all the time. I also wear shirts of my favourite local wrestling promotion. I wear some old school The Cure, NIN and David Bowie shirts, alongside many others of similar genres.
