1970s Men Fashion Ads You Will Never Be Able To Unsee


Men’s fashion ads from the 1970s are anything but normal. Around this time the price of synthetics dropped, allowing men of all different classes to start playing around more with fashion. The seventies were also packed with reckless partying and peace loving hippies. As a result of culture, politics and society this era’s fashion got funky… real funky!

Mustard knits, high waist shorts, shiny leotards, purple jumpsuits and revealing briefs were just a few of the fun pieces circulating men fashion ads during this disco decade.

Once you see these fashion faux pas you can’t unsee them, so beware… some of these ‘fashion statements’ are so far out they have the potential to instill nightmares for decades to come!
