IF you ever needed reminding about the questionable dress sense of the entire population in the 80s then look no further than an episode of Miami Vice.
In fact, attend any 80sthemed party and you'll inevitably find someone dressed up as one of the show's two main stars. The two stars - Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas as James 'Sonny' Crockett and Ricardo 'Rico' Tubbs respectively - were Metro-Dade Police Department detectives working undercover.
From pink vests to cheap white suits - the fashion sense left a lot to be desired.
Nevertheless, in the 80s this duo were cool. The series ran in America for five seasons from 1984 to 1989.
As well as fashion, the show is also well-remembered for its use of music - in particular countless pop and rock hits of the 1980s. In fact, producers would spend $10,000 or more per episode buying recording rights.
Michael Mann directed a film adaptation of TV series, which was released in 2006. The film starred Colin Farrell as Sonny and Jamie Foxx as Rico.
Thankfully, good sense prevailed and a sequel wasn't commissioned.
