James "Sonny" Crockett and Ricardo "Rico" Tubbs' Flashy Menswear
Crockett and Tubbs weren’t your average sloppy dressed detectives. These two looked like Pitti Uomo veterans. Italian unstructured blazers combo’d with a pastel colors, Miami Vice set the lead for the T-shirts under blazers look. And as for wearing no socks as a style statement, Don Johnson was one of the first to pull it off. Retailers and brands even marketed their gear from the shows aesthetics to cash in on the trend. Nice weather, exotic cars, hot babes, and an awesome soundtrack also helped sell that Miami lifestyle.
