    I actually had a Botany 500 sport coat in that era. I was probably 13 years old at the time.

    That undershirt! Those shoes! Those long collars! And (choke) THOSE KNITTED SWEATER VESTS!! It’s funny what passes as fashion …

    On the other hand, hats always look good 🙂

    • Yeah, I would wear the hats. The rest… not so much.

      I rarely go out without my sorta-fedora-cowboy hat. One for wearing in public, one for working in the yard. Although, they’re starting to look alike.

      Why Did Men Stop Wearing Hats?

    Looking at those knitted sweater vests, that’s not a retail ad, that’s a book of knitting patterns! Those weren’t just a quick thoughtless purchase, a man who had one of those had it because it was deliberately inflicted on him, probably by a loved one who put in hours of work to produce the dratted thing.

    I don’t have that book, but I do have at least one old book of knitting patterns that is also spectacularly outdated.

    • You’re right, of course — it’s not an ad, but the picture was so funny I couldn’t resist including it. I had several knitting pattern books of that vintage as well. Wish I still had them — they’d be good for some laughs!

    Bought me some Pendleton shirts, these shirts are wonderful.
    Still have them after all these decades.
    They still work.

    How do those men’s body suits work anyway? I say bring ALL these styles back, we need a lot more levity today!
    ELEGANZA you rock! 😃

    I think us men are due a comparative woman escapade of “Advertisements from long, long ago — ultrasexy menswear edition” Don’t you thinks Miss B and B?

    Isn’t it funny how ideas and tastes change over time? Many of those things would be considered normal and good-looking at the time. Now we just laugh at them.
