Oh geez this brings back memories of Bobby Sherman - must be the hair on these guys. I grew up looking at stuff like this, wearing those granny square crocheted vests [ugh] as my mom was a prolific crocheter. I refuse to look at pictures of my youth, lol!

the man in the lower right hand corner looks like he could be in the 'men in tights' issue too! :D

OMG! It takes a real man to wear a belted sweater! I can think of about 50 people that I HAVE to have come and look at this! LOL!

I can't imagine a man wearing one of these even though I'm looking at it RIGHT NOW.

Hannita said...

What??? This is so fantastic. Thanks for making me smile.

mjhill said...

I love this SO much! This is how I prefer my men, actually :)

Ondine said...

That's one brave cowboy up there!

Busters Mom said...

Gay men would love these!!!! Sorry that was my first thought when I saw them.

Vivi said...

Hilarious!! When will this look return?!

Kathleen said...

Oh no! If this look returns, I'm outta here!!! LOL!!

Lorilee said...

Umm, well I, umm, (throat clearing), umm, that's interesting! I don't think real guys EVER wore those. They probably had to pay the models pretty well to get them to wear them. Or maybe they were just desperate for a job!
Blessings,

Manly, yet somehow very girlie.

Martha said...

These are just so wrong, and yet I can't stop looking at them -- they are strangely fascinating.

I love love love the 70s but these sweaters look ridiculous.

O my god...
That guy in the right upper corner looks like he's from the Starship Enterprise.

Geez, I'm way behind in my commenting, and normally I wouldn't comment on something this far back, but ha! These are fabulous. I love that we thought men would wear these. I mean, isn't it hard enough to convince most men that something hand made is something they'd want to wear? Then you throw in a belted sweater? Ha!

I took the link back here from a newer post....had to see the belted sweater story. OMG......now shows like 'that 70's show' seem to fog peoples memory as to how totally ungroovy the 70's really were. The show uses the styles of the 70's....but updated the colours to make it more acceptable to today's market. Now this......this is the real thing. Man it was bad:)

Eric said...

Wow. That's all I can say. The colors, the belts. Wow. I'm glad these sweaters aren't in style now. Yikes.

I want one...really,I REALLY WANT ONE!
