Where to get your 80s t-shirts

When I was a kid I practically memorized the words to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. I liked Dukes of Hazzard and played with Lite Brite. Anything 80s, basically, I liked. I have a kindred spirit in Kevin Stecko, who wore a He-Man t-shirt to an amusement park in 1999, the summer after he graduated from Penn State University. So many people asked him where he bought the t-shirt, he got the idea to sell it on the internet. His first shirt sold for $30 on ebay. Bullseye! He then founded the site 80stees.com. Since then, his shirts have been in several television shows. The product line has been expanded to include other pop culture shows like The Office and the Family Guy. While he hasn’t utilized his geo-environmental engineering degree, eight years into it, he has expanded the business to include 14 full time employees.

No way, they even sell Smurf t-shirts!
