    This is an odd one for sure, but I was attempting to locate a photo gallery of 80's punk attire to show someone, and I've had real trouble finding anything. So far, the best example I've found is this pathetic little French punk from 1981. Any other ideas worthy of Billy Idol?

    Have you tried Punk History Canada?

    EDIT: Sorry--I just found out that their gallery is offline.:o

    Thanks anyway. :bolian:

    On looking further, I've discovered I wasn't looking for exactly the right thing; apparently what I was thinking about is lumped in with something called New Wave. Still haven't found exactly what I was looking for, though; so the search continues...

    Gee, too bad I don't have a college yearbook - we had a bunch of really out-there punkers at my university.

    I googled (of course) and found a lot of photos on PhotoBucket. Have you tried there? Some of them are retro rather than period, but some are period.

    And then I also found this - didn't have time to check any of the links but some of them at least sound promising: http://80s-fashion.com/

    Just look up bands from that era who dressed like that.
