Dress like Marty McFly, circa 2015

Pretty fly for a Marty McFly.

Much ado has been made about Marty McFly's self-tying sneakers from Back to the Future Part II. What's been forgotten is his groovy hat of the future — until now.

That's right, McFliers, you can now dress even more like your hero, thanks to the Marty Hat Replica at ThinkGeek. At US$24.99, it's a lot cheaper than the US$37,500 a British rapper paid for a pair of McFly replica sneakers.

The hat is made from a super reflective fabric that shimmers and glimmers with swirls of colour. It looks like a herd of unicorns up-chucked some rainbows, all over it. The hat is one-size-fits-all-geeks, with a Velcro closure at the back.

Back to the Future Part II came out in 1989. The film's vision of 2015 still looks incredibly '80s, just with flying cars and sweet self-tying kicks. Don this fashion nightmare of a hat, and you will be both retro and futuristic at the same time.

I would recommend pairing the replica hat with a Back to the Future T-shirt and a DeLorean, otherwise, you're going to be stuck explaining your headgear to all the people who don't remember it from the movie.
