Twenty-Five Men’s Fashion Ads in Playboy 1966-1977

Share this:

In the 1960s and 1970s Playboy was one of the most popular men’s magazines in the US with a circulation at its peak that was close to an incredible five million copies. The magazine ran ads for years with the byline “What Kind of Man Reads Playboy?” Looking at these ads, which all appeared in Playboy from 1966 until 1977, it seems it was a man who had no fashion sense whatsoever.

    Re: the horoscope pants. Care to guess how long it took to get a shot without the female model laughing?

    Man, there was nothing like those 2-tone Dexters for snazzying up your feet. I had red, white, & blue ones, because that was the coolest.
