Beverly Hills Cop outfit

By Matt Glazebrook, 5 December 2014

On this day 30 years ago, Eddie Murphy's fast-talking Detroit cop walked into LA's most salubrious district and shook things up among its stuffy police department. Three decades and a couple of sequels later, two things stick in the mind from the first (and best) film in the franchise: Harold Faltermeyer's epic one-finger-keyboard soundtrack, and main man Axel Foley's killer casual game.

Varsity uniform

Drawing inspiration primarily from classic varsity styles, Murphy-as-Foley's cool, relaxed get-up marked him out as a very different beast to the downtrodden, cheap-suited detectives of the LAPD. At the same time, its super-simple bedrock of Adidas kicks, slim blue jeans, a marl grey sweatshirt and a navy hoodie means that – unlike many of its mid-80s cinematic contemporaries (hello, Eddie Murphy Raw) – the Beverly Hills Cop uniform hasn't dated at all.

 

Cop the full look below (we’ve switched the athletic hoodie for a more sturdy dark blue coat, because, hey, it's winter) and good luck getting the theme tune out of your head for the rest of the day.
