History: Kevin Stecko is the founder and CEO of 80sTees.
While attending college, Kevin stumbled into a retail shop, where he bought a He-Man shirt to wear for a trip to Kennywwod, the amusement park. When Kevin wore the shirt during his Kennywood outing for the first time, numerous admirers (spanning a wide age-range, both male and female) complimented him, with many directly asking him where he got it. Having sensed that supplying pop-culture T-Shirts was a potentially lucrative business opportunity, he abandoned a promising career in Energy and Geo-Environmental Engineering and proceeded to cut a deal to bulk purchase T-Shirts from the same store he bought his original He-Man t-shirt. After selling out the shirts, he realized he had found a new career and began the development of 80stees.com
Kevin is married and his hobbies include playing basketball and fishing. He is also a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers and is known to be susceptible to seasickness. Kevin's favorite actor is Ted Danson.
Many Costume Designers for movies and television order T-Shirts and costumes from 80sTees.com and the company enjoys a high profile in various media, having been written about and covered by Good Morning America, USA Today, The New York Times, and many others.
