I had one and wore it in middle school with my Chic jeans and feather clips in my hair. Of course, your hair had to be feathered back to.

I loved that shirt so much, I had 5 of them. I was big into rainbows back then. I remember those feather clips too Msapelila. Had lots of those too.

Not only did Eclipse make the t-shirt, they made the bulky sweater too. I HAD to have the sweater. If only somone had a picture of these.

Both my sisters and my Mom, as well as me, had this shirt! I don't think we ever all wore it at the same time or anything thankfully!

I looooove these and have also been looking all over for one. Definitely one of my favorite clothes items of the 80s!

This was my FAVE shirt ever! We wore them with our feathered hair, Sassoon Jeans, and Ken Rosenwald sneaks in middle school. I have been looking for one for years, please share if anyone knows where to buy one!

I still have my rainbow shirt has small print word eclipse on it , Wore it in the 7th grade Had the featherd hair had to use agree shampoo ,loved hello kitty stuff . I went to Michael's craft store today they have spools of ribbon 3 for 1.00 I bought the rainbow colors and thought how sad I want the rainbow back the Gay community should have made up a new flag to use for gaypride . I say we start a movement to reclaim the rainbow flag they say its stands for diversity well the last time I checked we didn't have blue, green and purple people on earth . i'll take a picture later and put on this site . who agrees about takeing back the rainbow ?

Kimberly: I agree with you! The rainbow was a symbol of hope way before it had anything to do with being gay.

I don't see any reason why we can't all love the rainbow. It doesn't have to "belong" to anyone. I also LOVED this shirt, and wish so badly that I still had mine (or could buy one today).

I loved my rainbow shirt & I'd love to buy another one. Anyone know where to get one these days?

Eclipse also made black rainbow shirts, which mine is. I looked all over for the black one back in the day, and finally found one. They weren't as popular as the white ones.

I am looking for a rainbow shirt to buy. Can anyone share where they might be found??
Cindy - October 07, 2014 - Report this comment
I always wanted the rainbow shirt with eclipse written on it too! I never had one as we didn't have much money. I got on here looking for one to fulfill my childhood dream of owning one and also to take back the rainbow as someone already said! Would love to buy one if any go up for sale. Wish a manufacturer would just make them all over again.
