186_Vintage Men's Fashion Ad

Here, (in chronological order) are 20+ Swinging Sixties sweaters, slacks, shirts and suits.  Groovy, baby!

 

1960 Goldenaire Slacks

Yes, the darndest things happen, like women in nighties risking suffocation by stowing away in your airtight locker.  Those kind of things.

1963 Ban-Lon

With names like “Excelsior”, “Elegante”, and “Viva” you know they’re classy.   If that’s outside your budget, check the clearance rack for the “Lowbrow”, “Philistine” and “Functionally Illiterate’ brands.

 

1964 Van Heusen Shirt

“in another second he’ll knot that tie and reach for his coat.  I don’t want him to go, I love him so.”

If I were this guy, I’d be a little wary of this overly attached girlfriend.  Creepy.

She looks absolutely scared to death.  It looks like Bobby was abusing her, got caught on camera and is saying, “It’s not what it looks like – We were just playing around.”

1967 Spencer Slacks

“From the authentic line of merchandise exclusively by Spencer Slacks for “the Monkees” starring on NBC-TV.”

When you slip into a pair of slacks like the ones worn by Peter Tork and Mike Nesmith, chicks will literally have to be handcuffed by law enforcement to keep them away from you.  Such is the power of Monkees slacks.

 

1968 and 1967 Broomsticks

1968 and 1967 Broomsticks

The Broomsticks slacks adverts were pretty racy for the time – always with the indication that sex was right around the corner.

1967 Career Club Shirt

“Wag fingers, call mate…Waggle hands front and back…”   Literally, the worst dance of all time.  Besides “The Jellyfish“, of course.

As awkward as “The Skate” appears, let’s be slow to judgement and not forget we live in an age of twerking.

 

1968 Male Scene Jeans

1968 Male Scene Jeans

1968 – The year of striped high-waisted jeans and high hemlines for miniskirts.  Life was good.

 

1968 Drummond

In the Swinging Sixties, even sweater adverts were sexy.

 

1968 Harris Slacks

You might have noticed a slight trend in 1960s men’s clothing adverts – shirts, slacks, sweaters, suits are all nothing more than lady bait.

 

1969 Fortrel Slacks

I’m pretty sure he’s spilling his coffee all over himself, but the bigger question is ‘what is that painting by his left leg’?

 

1969 Sears

This isn’t the Sears I’m familiar with.  Playboy bunnies, “Luxurata” suits…. what happened, Sears?  You used to be so hip.

“She’ll find it hard saying goodnight” your plaid trousers are just so damn irresistible.

 

1969 mrhicks

1969 Mr. Hicks

Yeah, he looks super cool, but won’t you don’t realize is that he rode up on a bicycle wearing that helmet.

 

1969 Lee Fastbacks

… and I guess we can presume that Saturday night’s are for threesomes.

 

1969 Anvil

Ummmm…. I’m fairly certain there was not a single guy at Woodstock wearing Anvil slacks.

 

1970 Carsuals. 1970 T Belt

1970 Carsuals. 1970 T Belt

Looks like we’ve reached 1970, and as expected, things are just a touch tackier.
