Best Shirt Ever

Remember the movie Flash Dance?
Without a doubt the best blue collar movie to come out of the 80's. It definitely inspired me as a youngster and has left a strong impression on me even to this very day. If you haven't seen it i can't recommend it highly enough.
Now i now a lot of guys will judge a movie by its cover and be turned off by what looks to be a girls movie full of bad acting and shit dancing but you couldn't be more wrong.
Not to spoil the movie, but it's about a pretty young girl who dreams about becoming a fully qualified welder, but is forced to dance at night.
Even though she hates dancing and wants to throw it in to concentrate on welding, she has to dance at night to make extra money to get her through her apprenticeship.
I think from memory at the end she's does a perfect overhead weld and one hell of a vertical up and tells her boss at the dance studio to get fucked. A truly inspiring movie.
Good sound track too "I'm a maniac, maniac on the floor, and i'm welding like i've never welded before!"
