Vintage 80's Photos of the Vice Look

Recommended Posts

Was going through some old photos from "back in the day."  Found some of me doing the Vice look in "real time," mostly late high school/early college.  Graduated high school in CA in 1987, so there are from 1986 until about 1988-89.

Had to add the black anonymity bar, as I'm still involved with doing the "Job" for real.  But I think it's pretty clear from the clothes and the "bi-level" hair cut (NOT a mullett!) that I've been a fan from the beginning!

 

I ask everyone to try and find and post some "vintage" photos of their own '80's/Vice memories.

The suspenders in the first one had little palm trees printed on them.  It was for one of those boat dances on the Bay.  My buddy and I brought those old "EnterTech" battery-powered squirt guns that looked just like real Micro-Uzi's; all black/no orange, actual size, and the water went into the removable magazine.  And we weren't the only ones. Original theme playing on the tape deck in my Ford Falcon, driving like jack-asses around the parking lot by the dock "shooting" at each other from our cars...  Our girlfriends were into it too.  Still amazed we weren't arrested or shot for real.  They wouldn't let us bring them on the boat, though.

Last one is my homage to John Turturro in "Rites of Passage," though I doubt I knew it at the time.

Good memories.

Marco you look fantastic!  My favorite is the one of you wearing the hat. I really wish I could find photos of me from back in the 80s.  Due to  numerous moves and bad relationships a lot was lost including, unfortunately, all my photos. As soon as my time machine is finished I am going back to the Vice decade and retaking the pictures.  Until then I will have to wear the vintage clothing I have today.

Thanks Vicefan.  When my folks moved a few years ago, they had this giant box of loose photos.  Went through them one day and found some real gems.  

The hat pic is from our Senior Year Fashion show in 1987.  Don't have any of the clothes any more, but I still have my original black B&L RayBan Wayfarers from back then.  Weird what sticks with you throughout the years.

Unfortunately, I can pretty much never find any vintage in my size.  I wear a 48 regular jacket and 36 waist, and it seems that nothing over a 44 jacket survived the decade.  

When you finish that time machine, let me know if you want a co-pilot who can also pull security.
