Vintage photos that show why the 1970s men’s fashion should never come back

Every decade has a reputation and leaves a legacy for generations to come. The 1950s were a quiet one with Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, classy cars and an economic boom. The 1960s had counter-cultural stuff with The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and, apparently, a lot of drugs.

But the 1970s? There were still music, sex and drugs in that decade, but they came with ugly hair, bell bottoms, weird color combinations, big collars, weird fashion sense. None of this was good. Especially men's fashion, it was all ugly.

The men's fashion of the 1970s, shown through these vintage photos, is so ugly and destructive. Men's clothing made from shiny spandex, hip-hugging bell-bottom pants, unmanaged chest hair, shiny leisure suits, skimpy short shorts and questionable underwear choices.

This decade produced the shortest shorts, including some that looked like the guy forgot to wear a pair of pants. And one of the weirdest crazes of the 1970s was making clothes out of weird (and sometimes uncomfortable) fabrics. Who thought of wearing vinyl as a jumpsuit?
