In the '80s, Apple Fanboys Were Douchebags Too

By Jesus Diaz on at

One could argue that everyone in the '80s dressed up like douchebags. That's probably true. I'm guilty of that (thanks mum!). But you can also argue that Apple users wearing Apple gear looked extra-douchebaggy with vagina cleaning foam on top.

Guilty as charged, your honour. I still have a few of those stripped Apple pins. And, let's face it, who doesn't want one of those awesome pseudo-Porsche Carrera glasses now? Every Apple hipster would want one. Heck, I want two pairs. If you want to see a lot more Apple merchandising wonders from the 80s, go to [Retronaut]

I want the sunglasses, but I can't say the same about those belts. Who the hell came up with those?

 

Even the Dieter Rams-designed Braun calculator looks bastardised with that Apple logo slapped onto it.

 

Some of the merchandise was particularly naff, like the dumb Macintosh notepad... that I would like to have as an iPad cover.

 

Everyone knows Apple decanters make the worst wines taste insanely great.

 

I want that lunchbox. Badly.
