Mud, Music & Pac A Macs: Festival Essentials At 80s Casual Classics
Get geared up for the festival season, whatever the weather, with our massive selection of festival essentials.
The summer festival season is now here which means its probably about time to make sure you’ve got all the correct festival essentials for the job. 2018 will see Glastonbury take an annual break from the UK summer festival circuit but that doesn’t mean there is a lack of choice without the celebrated Somerset event on the festival roster. Festivals have certainly grown in popularity over the last 10 years with just about every major city holding its own. From Boardmasters in Newquay to Parklife in Manchester, festival goers nowadays are spoiled for choice, regardless of their own personal musical preferences, from underground indie bands to electronic dance music pioneers. One thing that is for sure however during the festival season, is looking the part, and something that all dressers share a common admiration for. Even though the conditions may not be the best at the typical festival with constant batterings from rain and mud, this doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your beloved casual style. Here at 80s Casual Classics we’ve got a vast selection of festival essentials from the trusty bucket hat, pac away macs, retro t-shirts and shorts.

No festival outfit would be complete without the classic bucket hat. The iconic headpiece as long been associated with the mass crowds of festivals since Spike Island and the second ‘Summer of Love’. We’ve got a massive selection of brands, styles and colourways from the likes of classic French sportswear labels like Lacoste, British heritage check from Aquascutum and classic 80s brands such as Fila.
Thanks to this game changing piece of kit introduced by Leon-Claude Duhamel in 1965, the first ever pac a mac was born. The concept was quite simple, if it started raining you could cover yourself in the waterproof cagoule, if it stopped raining the jacket could be easily folded away into its own carry bag system. K-Way have become part and parcel of the festival scene over the last 30 years with classic styles like the Leon and the Claude some of the most famous cagoule styles of all time.
