Frankie Say… HOW MUCH???

Frankie Say… HOW MUCH???

Spied online yesterday, selling for £93.25 each, these classic, original T shirts….

Frankie Say Arm The Unemployed

Frankie Say War! Hide Yourself

Frankie Say Relax Don't Do It!

I had the “War! Hide Yourself” version back in the day and for the life of me can’t find it, not that it would fit me today 🙁

There are so many cheap and badly made/designed rip offs available nowadays but nothing like these originals. I was hoping that ZTT might have seen the marketing opportunity when they released the Frankie Say Greatest “best of” last year, or even the 25th Anniversary Edition of “Welcome To The Pleasuredome” but alas not 🙁

Ho hum…

    Classic shirts. Totally reminds me of Westwood Village, CA back in ’84-’85 when “Relax” hit it big out here. Westwood was total ground zero for L.A.’s ’80s trendy fashion back then, and these shirts made many a storefront mannequin when they hit the scene.

    I wasn’t a hardcore FGTH fan but the boldness and simplicity of the graphic almost had me fork out for one of these. They even had them on white sweaters.

    Now that I think about it, they were almost exclusively worn by girls, either oversized with black stirrup pants and winklepickers or white Reebok hi-tops, or some a little more adventurous by cutting off the shoulder a la Flashdance…so that also probably explains why I never went for it.

    I’d have to agree with you about the cheap/poorly-designed knock-offs. I’ve even seen people wearing them. A common one is the one with the emphasis on “SAYS” in big ol’ letters which totally doesn’t make any sense. Ugh. Whatever makes a buck though, right…

    Anyways. Thanks for sharing, rock on.
