Every time I see this thread title...
Those Philipe Ramette photos reminded me of this series: (lots more if you click that link, and he does other really cool installations and sculptures as well)
that's kinda cool !

Was the average male in the 70s actually way more stylish than today, or is it just some kind of photojournalism bias that's making me think that?
i can tell you the answer, but it requires that you accept my 2000s era geller denim in exchange for that filthy 70s era schneider you hate since it makes you feel like a cookie monster
thought i wouldnt see this?
i didn't paint it in camo colors why wouldn't you be able to see it ? i love that last bit
