30 years on from ‘Definitely Maybe’ we look back at the best of Oasis’ 90s style

30 years on from 'Definitely Maybe' we look back at the best of Oasis' 90s style

Over the last few decades, Oasis has transcended being more than simply a band, to become something more akin to a myth.

Their leading duo – now-estranged brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher – haven't been seen together since the band's breaking up in 2009, but while we hope and pray and manifest a reunion in time for the 30th anniversary of their formative record Definitely Maybe this August, we'll be reminiscing on their 90s fashion sense as part of the pioneering Cool Britannia set.

Donning plenty of parkas, leather bombers, infamously shrunken denim jackets and wind breakers – both Liam and Noel were big fans of bold outerwear. Of course, hailing from Manchester (a place whose sonic output was recently paid homage to by CHANEL), this was also a practical uniform for the brothers growing up.

But both on stage and off, the uniform was often paired with Liam's collection of coloured Kangol bucket hats, or high-end British heritage houses like Burberry or Fred Perry.

For all the 90s nostalgia your week needs, we take a look back at the best of Oasis' style from the 90s below...


On stage at Glasgow Barrowlands in a zip-up camouflage parka – tambourine in hand of course.


In typical English fashion, the boys often leant into cable knit sweaters – and we love this cream-hued oversized iteration with a mock neck.


Spicing things up a bit in a leather jacket, paisley scarf and black hat.


Unafraid to take a risk, Liam dons a white zip-up with fur-trimmed sleeves and collar over a band tee (and accessorised with a classic pair of frame-less aviator sunglasses).


Some patriotic stripes to match a union jack electric guitar on stage. Why not!

Exiting the airport in style in a white parka, Kangol bucket hat, shorts, adidas sneakers and a slouchy Burberry duffel bag in their heritage check print.


The Kangol hat made many appearances – as did denim jackets.

Messing around at a celebrity football match, in (yet another) Kangol bucket hat that matched the blue game jersey.


Lennon-esque sunglasses and a sleeveless black tee are simple but classic.


Ever-the-patriots, here Liam accessorised with a Union Jack flag over a linen button-down.
