Miami Vice

In the mid and late 80s "Miami Vice" had a huge impact on fashion and pop culture. This TV series' characters, Sony Crockett & Rico Tubbs, portrayed by Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas, had two different styles yet one designer, Hugo Boss.

Rico went more for a formal dandy look by wearing double breasted jackets, pin striped suits, dark colored suits, leather jackets, and sometimes he wore some chains as an acessory. While Sony is perhaps the "icon" from this show due to his pastel/white colored suits and jackets paired with pastel t-shirts and Wayfarers; yet in some seasons he wore Carreras.
