1. Glassons Rock Sweaters (100% cotton), $49.99: Our teen expert confirms that it’s still much cooler to wear an ‘old band’ than a ‘new band’ on your chest.

2. Limited edition Moodie Tuesday tees, $75: Artist Jon Thom reinterprets portraits of iconic musicians and offers them on his Dunedin-based ‘Moodie Tuesday’ T-shirts. “Musicians from a bygone era have an authenticity that MTV stars lack,” he says. Limited edition scoop neck tees come with A5 limited edition hand-signed prints.

3. Federation tees, $79.95: We suspect these band-meets-designer tees are a clever way around licensing laws with a big dose of Federation wit thrown in for good measure.

5. Boh Runga Devotion Rings: To complete the groupie look you’ll need at least a little bit of metal. Who's more qualified to design a suitable muscle-y ring, than muso Boh Runga? Her Devotion rings for New Zealand Mint for him and her are $261 and $256 respectively.

You may not have been born in 1989 when Soul II Soul's 'Back to Life' single topped the UK charts and the US Top Five, but let us tell you that they were the funkiest band you could dance all night to. 

This week the band re-released their t-shirts for sale at department store Harvey Nichols in the UK. Around NZD$350 will buy you one of six styles exclusive to the Soul II Soul Classics pop-up in the Knightbridge, London store.

Sadly, Harvey Nics' doesn't ship outside the UK, which lead us to thinking - what's out there in the way of band tees locally right now?  Go put your favourite track on, loud, and we'll show you what's hot for the fashionable groupie.
