Actually Ton Sur Ton also made mens clothes in the 80's...they were carried by the big department stores: Macy's, Foleys etc... Again oversized with silkscreened prints. They were known for a cut of sleeve that was wide at the shoulder(almost to mid body) and tampered in

I bought a Ton Sur Ton coat on Venice Beach in Los Angeles in 1982. It was white cotton, had drawstrings in various places, had a button-off hood and resembled a Japanese Fisherman's coat. Still have it and LOVE it!

I was so excited when I stumbled across this site as we are about to re launch the brand in the UK. All the favourited will be in the range, oversized sweatshirts, tracksuits and the iconic jackets. Let me know your thoughts! And if you have any pics wearing the brand in the 80's let me know as you might be featured in the ad campaign!

In mid 90's one could still find Ton Sur Ton in Malta. I loved the sweatshirts which were so warm. I still have a t-shirt with the wording Ton Sur Ton evolution.

I was in high school and this was oh so eighties to wear. I did not own any of it but come across it now and then in second had stores. Always the oversized jerseys in funky prints. I would not mind a t-shirt for myself if it ever came along.

My favorite Shirts were Ton Sur Ton . I had a white shirt that just looked great on and I had a Grey oversized shirt with a front pocket and at the time I had a kitten that would ride around in that front pocket. I had the cat for 21 years and the shirt. Wish they were still around.

Just picked up a grey Ton Sur Ton jacket today in a local social shop for €1 - fitted, quilted body with wide almost wing like arms in a grey colour. Sort of Japanese looking design - well loved but still looks great. Will be wearing it tonight on stage. Does anyone have any history of the brand?

I want to do a history of Ton Sur Ton the most overlooked brand of the 80's! I worked at GHQ and the two most wanted brands were TST and Williewear. Anybody know where the TST people are now?

I was an avid windsurfer in the late 80's-early 90's in Hood River. After sailing I always wore my favorite peach Ton Sur Ton sweats. I still have them and was just about to take them to the second hand store when I came across this site. Now I think I'll hang on to them a bit longer.

Ton Sur Ton was based out of Los Angeles, owned by Menachem Treivish. His girlfriend bankrolled the company originally; she had high-end retail stores in LA (cannot remember the name). I worked for a bank which financed him after he got well-established in the rag trade.

TON SUR TON was owned by a very poweful man in fashion industry named MENACHEN TREIVUSH. He sold the company in the late 80's to a French business man and then disappeared into the whril of time. He also owned a company called A.GOLD.E with partners RON HERMAN and ADRIAN GOLDSHMIDT for which it stans A.G.E..Adriano Goldshmidt Event!!! I personanlly worked with the men. Great people!!!

And she told me that was her most Comfortable Garment that she has ever worn & got a Million Compliments on was mine / Hers “Ton Sur Ton Jacket” Crazy (-: She had borrowed it from me & I have never retrieved it back since…. Good Old 80’S miss those party Days… I asked her “What else do you have of mine” she just laughed & Giggled

I remember Ton Sur Ton well. We used to hang out together in the Louvre and then we'd go out for ice cream afterwards. I dated his sister for awhile...oh, never mind. I'm thinking of someone else

Our daughter had a TST that was given to her by her grandmother for a Christmas gift when she was a sophomore in the late 80s. One of her alleged best friends borrowed it one night and sold it to someone. It was one of the white TST puffy jackets. Tough luck on Melissa's part, I warned her. Still wished she had it to pass on to her 4 year old daughter.I was hoping to find one for our granddaughter.

I bought my first Ton Sur Ton shirt at Bloomingdale's at The Falls in Miami in the summer of '85. It was a pink, long sleeve shirt with their emblem. A girl named Disa Marie, working there in the men's department, picked it out and I asked her on a date and we went. It became my favorite shirt, and my friends all thought it looked like a pajama top. I wore it my first night on Hilton Head Island, later that that summer, and I met a blonde waitress named Melisa, while I was wearing it, at a lounge called The White Parrot, at The Holiday Inn. I fell in love with her, and stayed on Hilton Head the rest of the summer.

i had a cream colored sweatshirt in highschool.i bought at foley's in the memorial city or sharpstown malls. it has a poplin, or canvas yoke & a two button placket w/ metal buttons.There's a little grey & white zebra print patch at the base of the placket that says Ton Sur Ton. since It doesn't stay cold in houston very long, cold weather clothes don't get really worn out. i wear it occaisionally but it's a little snug in the shoulders now.(other 80's clothes also have are a henley from when banana republic sold safari clothes,a rugby shirt from when abercrombie & fitch didn't suck, & some williwear pieces.

I had a great! Ton Sur Ton jacket. It was THE most comfortable jacket ever,.. and very cool kinda New Wave style. It was white with and the jacket closed diagonally rather than vertically. I also had matching pants that had a piece of cloth that crossed from the waist to the opposite leg. They ROCKED! :)

I'm wondering if anyone knows of a market to SELL TST clothing? I have a pink/aqua sweatshirt & pants set which I've just listed on eBay for the third time. I've never had a single bid, no interest at all- and that's with a starting bid of just $7.00 I know these are hard to find, these matching sets...and I really thought I'd find more of an enthusiastic market. Anyone know a better market I might find in which to sell this? Thanks in advance for any input!

I just bought a Ton Sur Ton shirt at a local antique store. At first I thought it was a vest that the cross walk guards wore, but I thought wrong. It is yellow and gray, and it looks like a M.C. Hammer shirt. That is what makes it cool.

TST was all the rage at the Bonham Exchange in San Antonio, Tx.. I had lots of their clothes. The best place to buy mens TST was Judy's at Northstar mall. They always had the latest and in limited numbers so you wouldn't always see someone else wearing your outfit. Between them, Girbaud and Bundeswear we were quite the stylish bunch. I miss the innocence and outrageously expensive clothes of the 80's.

I first discoverd TST in Houstons Galleria. I'd buy 4 or 5 sweatshirts every year i went to visit. being from Colorado everyone asked where did I get them...hahahahaha, not in Denver.(sadly) before they shut down, :( I had around 30 sweatshirts, 1 jacket and 1 pair of jeans. It's now 2012 and they have all since been worn out.

They were sort of like a second-string Fiorucci. I had a grey and yellow Ton Sur Ton sweatshirt...I cut the neck out past the shoulders and used the scrap fabric for a headband(LOFL...so 80s).

I have a ton sur ton big baggie striped wool line duffle coat/jacket - blanket style. No hood. Absolutely fantastic. Came across it in a charity store in the UK. Big black logo on the bag and funky wide sleeves. Anyone have any idea how much this vintage ton sur ton goes for now?

Just bought a cute faded candy floss pink pair of cotton overalls from an Op shop in New Zealand for $2. Was researching the label, Ton Sur Ton Paris, and came across this site. Really cute bib long overalls with big square patches hand sewn onto them. One patch looks like the French flag!

I'm friends with the guy who ran TST in the 1980s, and he would enjoy seeing some of his old apparel. So, I'm interested in buying some vintage TST through Ebay. Just let me know what you want to sell by email at RobCharlesPhoto /at/ gmail /dot/ com Cheers!

I clearly remember finding a powder blue TST jacket at Macys in San Francisco. I screamed Duran Duran and I grabbed the last one on the rack. It was my first purchase with my new Macys card. I know my limit was $300 and it took the whole card a little more cash. Wish I still had that jacket. Got a lot of mileage out of that!

I just found my rayon Ton Sur Ton shirt that I bought a very long time ago at a Melrose 2nd hand store. It was old then. It's pink with gray trim and features a globe with wings on the back BY AIR FLY N' 504. It was made in Portugal Ref 381. Can't decide if I should put it on ebay or keep it.
