Men in the 1970s didn't just automatically know how to look good. They had to see photos and ads of their fellow men wearing the trophies of their work...work that involved silently stalking the elusive jungle couch until it could be turned into pants.

This x1000 though now that I think about it, the 80's 90's and 00's really weren't better, possibly even worse.

And yet:



Though I suspect this flatters his physique more than all of the gentleman above, aside from #1.

The collar points on those shirts are loooong. Wonder how that would like on some of the WAYWRN posters.
