40 Reasons Why 1970s Men’s Fashion Should Never Come Back

It seems nowadays there is very little variety when it comes to men’s fashions.  Most looks are relatively somber when compared to the plethora of options that women have when it comes to what to wear. However, that wasn’t always the case.  If you have ever flipped through a men’s magazine from the 70’s, you would realize that men were just as fashion forward as women. It’s amazing that these ideas haven’t evolved with the times, but then again, after seeing them, you may be relieved that they died out as you ask yourself “What were they thinking?” Check out these 1970s mens fashion choices that disappeared along with the world of disco.

After seeing where the world of men’s fashion was then, compared to where it is now, I am grateful for the way the trend has taken a turn for the better.   However, I’m sure these were amazing in their day. Maybe in 40 some odd years we will look back at today’s fashions and wonder what we were thinking, for both men and women! And who knows, maybe these looks will come back in a few more years! You never know!
