Everything retro becomes stylish again!

And there’s just something about a retro tee that brings back the nostalgia of childhood. Regardless of your generation, we know you’re going to love these gnarly ’80s t-shirts on Amazon that our team is reminiscing over!

Erica’s D.A.R.E. t-shirt

D.A.R.E. Officially Licensed Dare Classic Graduation Shirt – $14.99

While long gone are the days of sitting in your classroom learning all about D.A.R.E., you can still score this amazing shirt in case you parted ways with your old one years ago. 😉

Here’s what Erica had to say about her Amazon shirt:

“I love my new shirt! It’s so fun and totally takes me back! I can clearly remember wearing this shirt! It is so comfortable, too, and the fit is great. I ordered a small, which is my regular size, and it fits perfectly!”

Emily’s Pepsi t-shirt

Classic Pepsi T-Shirt – $19.97-$21.97

The rivalry between Pepsi and Coke will never fade. For those ride-or-die Pepsi lovers, you totally need this classic soda shirt! Whether tucked in or knotted on the side with jeans, this is a great t-shirt to wear all year round.

Here’s what Emily had to say about her Amazon shirt:

“I love vintage tees! This retro Pepsi t-shirt has 80s vibes all over it! It’s incredibly soft, and I love the worn-in logo and red piping on the collar & sleeves. I ordered my regular size small and it’s the perfect loose, relaxed fit. I also appreciate the long length through the body since I have a longer torso. I can’t wait to pair it with some cut off denim and hit the beach!”

Stetson’s MTV shirt

MTV Men’s Long Sleeve Shirt – $21.87-$31.49

Ahhh! The memories of getting ready for school and jamming out to MTV hits, hoping your favorite music video would come on before the bus arrived. This shirt will look great on any guy or gal and bring back fond memories of music, watching spring break, and Real World – Season 1!

Here’s what Stetson had to say about his Amazon shirt:

Retro shirts are the thing to wear. Not only did it feel like going back in time, but I felt rad in this MTV shirt. It fit true to size and brought a nostalgia that took me to the good ole days. It’s a good quality shirt you can wear out casually and goes with anything…I guess you could say it’s a timeless piece. 😂

Michelle’s Smokey Bear shirt

Retro Smokey Bear T-shirt$19.97-$20.97

Officially licensed by the United States Forest Service, this super-soft, retro t-shirt will be your favorite new way to sport your fave mascot! And remember…”Please Be Careful… Prevent Wildfires”!

Here’s what Michelle had to say about her Amazon shirt:

“I was so excited to spot this Smokey the Bear tee! I loved him as a kid, and now I can share the joy by wearing this shirt! I also love the ringer sleeves on this shirt for extra character and a vintage look.”

Sara’s Stranger Things shirt

Stranger Things Black T-shirt – $16.95

While Stranger Things is newer to the scene, any fan of the hit throwback TV show knows that it’s all about those vintage ’80s vibes – and they do it so perfectly! My exact shirt quickly sold out, but I also found it in white, burgundy & gray – the perfect colors to welcome fall!

Here’s what I had to say about my Amazon shirt:

“My husband and I are huge Stranger Things fans, so this shirt was a no brainer for me! I sized up since I envision myself wearing this as a comfy shirt around the house and maybe even for running errands. I’m very comfortable wearing it, and the graphic is so cute! #TeamElevenForever LOL!”

    Does anyone else still have DARE in their schools? My daughter just graduated from the dare program last year when she was in 4th grade. And got a tshirt too! Different design but still DARE. Is our city still living in the 80s? Anyone else out there?
