The Onesie

Something a bit different. Ad images from days gone by. "A smooth comfortable fit designed to make the most of your body. " So says the blurb for the hottest item of the season - the one colour one piece jumpsuit. See, back then, it was no problem, obviously, to leave nothing to the imagination. Its just a hunch, but I suspect he'd be arrested if he wore that today. Anyhow, a nice reminder of how things used to be, and how they've come back...of a sort. As for the ad, his demeanour says he's ready for a fight, all the while dressed in an infants outfit. Bizarre. 

And as for the woollen coat and matching woollen belt...hmmmm. To these modern eyes, it stills looks odd to have so much wool over such a large area. Guys in 2012 might have a harder time adopting such figure hugging trends. Thanks to our wonderful sugar rich diet, the stomach and arse have grown over time, and correspondingly fashion has become looser fitting. But this is tight !

Jumpsuit at that time is also very stylish.

Wow that is amazing. Interesting how masculinity changes through time. People tend to forget things too easily and quickly
