{     Durkl     }    

True I was born in the early 80’s and didn’t get to experience the era first hand but trust me I caught up. Say Anything, The Breakfast Club, and high top Nike’s are currently stocked in my closet and in a time of ‘bringing fashions back’ I was always wondering when the 80’s would get their moment in the spotlight once again. Thanks to the oddly named Durkl you can see a company dead-set on bringing this time of bright colors and eye-popping designs back…In full force. Whether it be the bold black and pink Durkl standard or the very Back to the Future wrap shades, Durkl wants to you to embrace, no, love the 80’s all over again.

When I first got a Durkl t-shirt in the mail I was worried that maybe wearing it out was gonna draw too much attention (true one of the woes of living in Texas), but I plucked up my courage and sported the infamous Durkl man out and let me tell you I stood out. Sure I am 6’4’ but colors like the ones Durkl use are not for the weak, and they kind that make you understand why people in the 80’s had the urge to wear their sunglasses at night. The collection is moving fast, but have no fear because the wonderful lads at Durkl promise new designs and new colors will be pumped out as long as there is the demand. So pop in your favorite Van Halen cd, string up your high-tops, and start parting like its 1984…

Man, ironically I was afraid of when the 80's fashion would be recycled. As long as the big hair, overdone stone-washed jeans, and plastic jewelry stay gone I think we're all much safer.

Nice review!

That cyborg-hand busting out of the chest piece is badass!
Mad props for wearing anything this rad in the Lone Star State. I fucking hated living there.
All those stereotypes you see in movies and on TV are actually true. Formal dress means boots, buckle AND hat. If you think that's kitschy and cute, you've obviously never been kicked in the ass by a redneck wearing silver-tipped boots because you "talk like a faggot".

Alright, I must confess... the shirt with the destructo mechanical arm is dope. Complete with the rendered 3d landscape in background... oh and lets not forget the powell peralta ripper likeness. And shit who would not love the hulkamania spoof...
