27 Awkward 70s Fashion Ads That You Can't Unsee

What were they thinking?

Vintage fashion might be in, but some outfits from the 1970s look like they're from another dimension.

Men's fashion, in particular, featured short shorts, ponchos, clashing colors, onesies (yes, for men), bell-bottom pants with no zipper or button (how on earth did they go to the bathroom?) and scarf ties. Men even wore obnoxious wool-knit sweaters and crocheted vests with matching caps. We haven't even gotten to the handlebar mustaches that entire villages could hold onto.

Just be glad you did not live through this dreadful fashion period. Now, brace yourself, and take a look at these "groovy" 70s men's fashion ads:
