Pretty Green Overshirts 09/02/2020

New Overshirts At 80s CC

We’ve now introduced the classic military style from the likes of Weekend Offender, Lyle & Scott & Pretty Green. Military apparel has played a big role in British subcultures over the last 50 years. The mods for example were the first to wear the M-51 military parka whilst riding around the cold and wet streets of London on their scooters. The skinheads were famous for wearing the M-A1 bomber jacket which was a key part of the skinhead uniform. Over the last 30 years the military overshirt has become a... Read More

Pretty Green Parka Liam Gallagher 30/11/2019

Pretty Green: Parkas, Paisley Prints & Psychedelica

The Pretty Green Parka is now introduced to 80s Casual Classics in a range of cuts and colourways for the latest season. “Glad you have started to receive the clobber, thanks for all your comments on the clothes & packaging nice one!”, were the words of the ex Oasis front-man after launching his very own British designer label back in 2009. After the Burnage born brothers parted their ways in 2009, following on stage punch ups and even law suits against each other, Liam focused on his own solo ventures... Read More

Pretty Green Mac 10/11/2019

The Return of The Mac: An 80s Casual Icon

The Pretty Green Langley Mac adds a subtle touch of 60s psychedelica to the classic British military outerwear style. The mac started its life as part of military uniforms for soldiers, known more commonly as the trench coat. However, it was the 1980s when the mac really made its mark in places like Manhattan in New York with yuppie culture and filthy rich stock brokers spending their hard earned stock commissions on designer clothing. British brands like Burberry & Aquascutum became the go to brands for the 80s crowd, with... Read More

Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels: 21 Years Of Gangsters, Gambling & Antique Guns

2019 marks the 21st anniversary of Guy Ritchie’s cult British gangster flick ‘Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels’. It’s hard to believe its 21 years since the likes of ‘Hatchet’ Harry, Barry The Baptist, Rory Breaker and Nick the Greek brought us a new wave of British gangster film to the big screen. Guy Ritchie’s tongue ‘n’ cheek cult crime classic brought about the next generation of British gangster films after the likes of ‘Get Carter’ from 1971 and ‘The Long Good Friday’ from 1980. The London underworld was captured... Read More

Cool Britannia: When The 90s Went Retro Casual

Britpop style was a unique look born in the 90s that took influences from the skinheads, the mods, the casuals and the Madchester baggies. The early 90s rave scene was starting to fizzle out due to ecstasy deaths and a growing police presence. Seattle Grunge was starting to make everyone feel depressed and there was a sense of something new in the air and that something big was about to happen. The 60’s had seen the UK export one of its biggest musical assets yet, The Beatles, and with that... Read More

My Generation: Classic Mod Parka Style At 80s Casual Classics

The Pretty Green Hooded Parka is just one fine example of our selection of parkas and classic Mod style. If the Casuals had their Settanta’s and Borg Elite’s, the Mods had their parkas and polo shirts. The original Mod subculture came off the back of the Teddy Boy scene of the 1950s with a group of young Londoner’s looking for something new, something fresh and most of all something modern. Just like the majority of other subcultures it was all about the clothes and the music with the original Mods... Read More
