The Coolest Rockabilly and Psychobilly Threads Online

There are hundreds of websites that sell rockabilly gear for the ladies...but how about the rockabilly guys out there? Trust me, there's plenty of cool rockabilly gear for the fellas, too. You just have to know where to look. Rockabilly clothing can be found newly manufactured and can also be found in rockabilly vintage form, from the forties and fifties. Did you know that there are different styles within the Rockabilly style itself? Whatever style Rockabilly you are, there is something online to fit your unique rockabilly clothing needs.

The first website I highly recommend for kickin' rockabilly wear is www.daddyos.com. They have the widest array of men's rockabilly bowling shirts...all newly manufactured so they have that extra rockabilly flair. Some of the bowling shirts are even Charlie Sheen's brand! Not that everyone wants to be like Charlie Sheen, but at least he has good taste in clothing, right? Check out my favorite bowling shirt to the right for less than forty bucks! Besides the bowling shirt cornucopia at daddyo's, some really hot (or cool) rockabilly, western shirts can be found, including the Booze and Bones Western shirt also pictured to the right. I can picture my rockabilly fella in this shirt, riding down route 66 in a ragtop. Wicked cool.

For a bit of a psychobilly edge, try out the psychobilly clothing selection at lucky13.com or greasegasandglory.com. Liquorbrand has quite a few psychobilly items for sale on this site, including the ultimately psychobilly Skull Zip Sweater pictured underneath of the Booze and Bones Western shirt. This psychobilly sweater is reminiscent of the highschool letterman jackets that rockabillies would wear back in the fifties, but this sweater isn't sportin' a letter...it's sportin' a skull and crossbones. This sweater is psychobilly in that it crosses rockabilly fifties' flair with a razor-sharp punk edge. It reminds me of something that the psychobilly guys in the band Nekromantix would wear.

As far as rockabilly style t-shirts go, you can find a plethora of rockabilly tees all over the web. Start out at Lucky 13. A graphic of a rockabilly, antique hot-rod truck is plastered artistically on the Lucky 13 t-shirt I have posted to the side...and you can purchase this rockabilly t-shirt for less than twenty-five bones. Pretty wicked deal, if you ask me. Or take a peek at the selection of rockabilly and psychobilly t-shirts at infectiousthreads.com. Their wide array of t-shirts cover everything from a neo-punk appeal to classic rockabilly to core psychobilly. Check out their Hilary Jane Deadsea T-shirt. If you want that psychobilly look, go for a t-shirt with a hot-chick-gone-zombie graphic...it works every time.

Sweaters, t-shirts, bowling shirts and western shirts...oh, you want to find a pair of rockabilly pants? No problem...Lucky 13 also has some radioactive rockabilly drawers for sale. My favorite pair are these white-washed black denim pants with ankle cuffs. Don't forget to hang your fave rockabilly bandana out the back-pocket...and a rockabilly-style wallet & chain. Or if you're the belt buckle type cat, snag the over-sized psychobilly Frankenstein belt buckle posted below, for sale by Whiskey Darling on etsy.com.

If you are searching for a more genuine rockabilly look, opt for vintage rockabilly threads. The perfect vintage bowling shirt is authentic and will have the rockabilly ladies beggin' for more. Rustyzipper.com has a whole section dedicated to forties and fifties shirts...which consists mainly of vintage bowling shirts, western shirts, and hawaiian shirts. The Rustyzipper will continue to be a one-stop shop for those rockin' rockabilly vintage duds.

Rockabilly Footwear

Every rockabilly cat has to have that rockin' pair of sneaks. Slip-ons are comfortable for everyday wear, and you can find them with almost every rockabilly graphic under the sun...including the dia de los muertos slip-ons posted here. These rockabilly kicks are up for purchase on greasegasandglory for only thirty-eight long greens. You can't beat that deal with a stick!

You could also get yourself a pair of classic rockabilly chucks. Kohl's is selling new Chucks online for $45.00, including this fun denim pair on the side. Chucks come in almost every color of the rainbow these days...but if you are lucky and like to scavenge thrift stores...you could just grab a pair of vintage chucks. The worn-out kind have the most rockabilly character and seem to mold very comfortably to your feet...perfect for a casual psychobilly style, too.

If you're a true rockabilly at heart, go with your rockabilly roots and get yerself a pair of rompin' stompin' cowboy boots. You can even find an authentic vintage pair online at etsy.com, including this vintage snake-skin pair at a great price of $58.00! They remind me of something you would find on a bad-ass cat in a western.

Miscellaneous Rockabilly Necessities

Men's Rockabilly Necessities List:

  • pomade for your pompadour
  • bandanas
  • wallet chain
  • leather wallet
  • boots: cowboy, military, combat, etc.
  • chucks (converse)
  • oversized vintage belt buckles
  • old school tie clips (with hot rods, old horror flick monsters, etc.)
  • vintage t-shirts
  • mechanic's workpants, jumpsuits
  • rattail comb
  • vintage levi jeans
  • penny loafers
  • white pocket t-shirts


Other Rockabilly needs could include a money clip, wallet & chain, a belt with a large belt buckle, bandanas, etc. I have scavenged the online sea of rockabilly accessories for men and posted my favorites here.

First I found an Elvis Presley money clip on etsy.com...it sports a picture of Elvis not in his prime in the fifties but it is the King of Rock, nonetheless. A vintage staple for any rockabilly.

If you are more into the psychobilly world, try out an oversized belt buckle like the one to the right. It cleverly depicts a portrait of Frankenstein's Monster...and we know how psychobillies obsess with the old horror flicks.

Don't pass up a chance to wear a fancy, rockabilly antique hot-rod tie clip...also listed on etsy.com.

An absolute rockabilly and psychobilly MUST-HAVE is a tin of pomade to grease back that hair of yours. The 8ballwebstore carries the American Greaser brand pomade for $7.50. If you want to have that classic rockabilly pompadour, your dresser-top will require a supply of pomade...year-round!

And last but not least, for the rockabilly businessman (because we all know not everyone can work on hot rods for a living): grab a deadly psychobilly business card case...like this muertos business card case...also discovered on etsy.com.

Before you start your online shopping adventure for that perfect rockabilly wardrobe, be sure to check out some videos on youtube of some rockabilly and psychobilly bands out on the scene today. Below is a video of the Nekromantix (my favorite psychobilly band of all time) performing their infamous song "Rot in Hell". Check it out and get inspired. Keep it cool!
