NFT: Think male rompers were the worst you could see?

Perhaps not....I give you male fashions of the '70s

hideous

short shorts on men should be banned.
I was living in Rochester and Albany in the 70s,

not exactly the most fashion-forward places, and I was a teenager in the suburbs most of that decade, but I don't remember ever seeing styles like those on any actual human being.

Leisure suits? Sure, my brothers and I all had our leisure suits. Platform shoes. Had a pair. Bell bottoms, check. Burgundy-plaid pants. Turtlenecks. I had groovy shit. But that stuff? Never even saw it.
I opened the link expecting to find fashion ads from the 70's...

...and instead I got what appears to be the University of Virginia football team's media guide.

Weird.

Outside of the guy with the Adidas shirt and jean cut offs, those were the guys we used to laugh at and shout "Disco sucks!"

Our parents had some seriously bad judgement. I guess for some of you it would be grandparents.

A belt over the sweater...WITH the ascot? That's a pretty douche-tastic ensemble, right there. Some of these dudes are straight up wearing women's bathing suits and dresses as well. I mean, what the hell is this shit?

Btw there is a lot going on in this picture other than fashion.

Guy on the right side in the back in the white and stirrups (ffs) is checking out hair guy. Middle guy in the white has the Red Foreman look on him that says, "you look like a dumbass." You're not excelling in that department either, guy.

Dude in the far-left rear is definitely a perv, waiting for this to wrap up for some after-shoot times at the 'Y'. Black dude is like, "you think we should invite these other clowns to the 'Y' with us after this?" Hair guy is a bottom and proud of it. He's thrilled with not only his fabulous man-kini, but with the events that he's sure are about to transpire.

Dude in the far front-right is the only one that is thinking..."my god how did I get myself into this situation and when is this going to be over?"
Hmm?

Nothing like having your nips and pubes excape your clothing to attract women.

From 69-73. Never saw anything like that.

There was an increase in polyester later in the disco era, but that stuff is the extreme end of the spectrum..... much like the runway fashion show attire that never is seen on the street.

And cut off jeans shorts have been around forever. IMHO, the most hideous fashion of the period were the calf high white athletic socks with the colored stripes. I cringe every time I see an old photo of me wearing them.
So, you're saying I have to go out and get a

Dang it!
I love the one with the two tools in their robes.

I was eating lunch when I saw it and spit food on my keyboard. At first glance, the seated guy looks like he has six toes.

Dude does have 6 toes. That's the hardest I've laughed all week.

Said the guy who can't detect obvious hyperbole and cheekiness.

Wow, you took that 1. as serious, and 2. as actual social commentary reflecting on me as a person. And you think I "don't get it." LOL dumbass!

What are you talking about? The shorter and tighter the better.

I rock these silkies every chance I get. Make sure to "google" Marine silkies to see more.

Silkies were indeed awesome
