Early Years

Posing in his Afro, Michael was already a stylish young man back in the seventies.  As he separates from The Jacksons Five to pursue his solo career, he started developing his own style.

After the release of “Off The Wall” in 1979, Michael Jackson ushered in the Thriller age.  The swagger was a signature jacket which he made famous from his music video along with the Thriller dance moves. PVC, faux leather and brilliant red were the key catchphrase when referring to the jackets.

Michael entered the “Bad” years and he polished his performances as well as his costumes, to add dramatic touches to his concerts.   Aside from the dramatic costumes, he introduced some attires that are easily associated with him in the future:  the fedora, the arm band and the loose white shirt.

Michael’s fascination with embellishments on his show attire peaked in the “Dangerous” years, as the album blown every chart in the world.  Probably a token of his success, Michael Jackson started to gleam and shine in his glory with many gold, military style, which he wore to lead legions of fans around the world to the top of his career.

In the mid towards the end of the 90s, Michael Jackson entered his “HiStory” years.  Michael Jackson embraced his softer look wearing mostly lightweight flowy shirts -even barechested, as well as keeping his trademark of army-look, only this time slightly in futuristic mode.  Note that mirror-glasses he made famous as well.

      don't let anyone tell you what to do it's your life live it like you want, you've only got one to live, but just so no-one puts you in the crazy house some things you feel are better left unsaid- alot of times these days the things you say you to watch. i believe some of the thinge michael jackson said had a lot to with his death. he got tired of being pushed around and people talking shit about him all the time, watch some of his interviews, he was naming people and saying what they do and what they have been doing wrong, something he never did, someone wanted him to stop talking.
