    my step bro and his wife still wear their 80s gear - not onesies or quite as gaudy as that pic
    they are certainly well enough off to afford new, but I think they like their stuff
    so prob not for sale

    A suit that guarantees that you will never, ever have to worry about skiing with your teenage daughter.

    Thanks all, I’m not worried about buying new because hopefully I will only wear it once and then get them drunk enough to forget they have them

    Hey I wore that jacket for a decade or more, I still get people asking me if I still own it, I offered to loan it to some-one on one occasion and she refused saying "Sorry It's not my shade of Flouro"

    Saw a guy skiing at Perisher last year in am old Nevica flouro Jacket from the late 80s.
    Could have been worse , at least it was not a one piece.

    I still have my Quiksilver Echo beach one piece from the 80's. I roll it out for fancy dress days. I think it's shrinking though.;)

    Hi Br
    Hi Bryan, If you're still looking for a retro ski suit, checkout shinesty.com, they have a great range if you want to buy new. I actually have a black, lime and orange onesie, but you can't have it!!. I got asked at Perisher a couple of years ago where I bought it from... St Vinnies for like $12. It's a ripper. Bring back the onesies I say!

    Ahhh every day is retro day in the Japanese resorts. For example, yesterday I saw n elderly man in a fluoro pink/purple jacket. Wasn't quick enough to get a pic tho.

    We have 2 boxes of small sized one piece suits that my mogul skier will not let me throw out :rolleyes: And every visit to 2nd street of Off House uncovers new retro delights!

    My hubby desperately wants a retro onesie. He was so jealous of the two young blokes we saw at Remarks last year wearing circa late ‘80s/early ‘90s onesies. One of them looked like he’d made his helmet out of a disco ball.

    The issue I’ve had in trying to find him a onesie is his size. He’s a very tall unit, and most of the ‘80s/‘90s era stuff just isn’t long enough. I did see that someone above posted a link to the Tipsy Elves website, which I happened to come across myself a couple of weeks ago. Once I have new passports sorted for Mstr 7 and Mstr 9, I may have to splurge for hubby.

    Every day on the slopes in Japan is retro day!

    Onesies are hard to find for taller people. Jackets are easy - so many in Off house and 2nd st. Pants, find bright ones that match.

    Its getting harder to find retro, because... RETRO!

    Vinnies in the ski towns is best bet for an original, but still a gamble you will stuble across one now. It's serendipitous luck. Jindy, Cooma, Berridale, Adamininby, Tumut, Bright, Mt Beauty, Mansfield, maybe even Corryong. Ebay of course.

    I think my hubby would be happy with any onesie, retro or no. They’re just not that popular, so reasonably difficult to find.

    Try looking in Snowboarding gear, most brands offer at least one onsee in their clothing range.
