Bring Back The 70s: These Vintage Men’s Fashion Ads Are Bitchin’

by Isabel Bartholomew

The look that says, “Hey, boys, I’m ready for anything!”

If you’ve been feeling lately like stirring up a Harvey Wallbanger and playing some Marvin Gaye, we have a treat for you. These men’s fashion ads from the 1970s are everything you could imagine and more: bold patterns, high waists, lots of mustard, unitards. Feast your eyes on this manly dreamscape: 

Including bedtime. 

Or simply lounging in matching silk sets. 

With your “high fashion coordinates,” you’ll always look your freshest. 

Knitwear perfect for mingling (the bartender is just jealous).

Full disclosure: I think these suits are cool as hell. 

Never go anywhere without your crew, or your bell-bottoms.

I have nothing to say.

Because the ladies love a literate man. 


Not to mention a sporty one. 


She’s saying, “I love your suit! And kneeling beneath you this way.”
