Vintage Pictures Of Marvelous Men In Short Shorts

Fashion changes over time; this is a universally acknowledged fact. And while some things come back into fashion a decade or two later, some fads are best forgotten and need to be buried deep in the fashion archives. Men's short shorts are one of those things, as proved by these vintage pictures from the 70s. Put the thighs away, gentleman. Thank you very much.

Awful Men's Hairstyles From The 1970s That Should Stay In The 1970s

Some beauty trends resurface over time, like thick eyebrows, chockers, and corduroy—which you can only pull off if you live in an expensive loft. These trends deserve the rebirths they get because they're cool, and they (usually) look good. But some styles from years gone by were so bad that they stayed there and thankfully never came back, like these long hairstyles from men in the 1970s. Back in the day, these men would be considered hot. But when we look at them now, all we see are a bunch of shaggy sheepdogs who need to lose their body weight in hair. It's a no from us.

Rock Stars From The 1960s And 1970s In Tight Pants, Showing Off Their Bulges

Back in the day, rock stars were demi-gods. Every guy wanted to be one; every girl wanted to be with one. And although fashion was somewhat different back then — and by that, we mean when men were somewhat effeminate and very tight clothing — the spotlight was always on them. Sometimes, quite literally. So, when the world is staring at your crotch, there's only one thing to do; shove some socks down there (unless you're born naturally endowed if you know what I mean). Enjoy these pictures of rockstars from the '60s and '70s wearing extremely tight pants and showing off their extremely large bulges. Whose is natural, and whose is a DIY job? What a fun game to play!

Vintage Ads Which Were Highly Offensive Towards Women

Full gender equality might still not be where it needs to be, but we've certainly come a long way over the past half a century. Travel back just 50 or-so-years-ago, and the world was not an easy place to be a woman. Where assisting men to become great achievers was their highest accolade, women didn't have much hope for being taken seriously. With companies insulting and belittling women as marketing strategies to sell their products, it was indeed a man's world.

These vintage ads give us an idea of just how little empowerment, rights, or power women had back in the day. Check out the horrors below.

Woman Finds Vintage Costume Guide From Back In The Day, Hilarity Ensues

Picture the scene: you're strolling down the street minding your own business, when you stumble across a book, lying there deserted on the curb. Curious, you bend down and pick it up, and it ends up being one of the weirdest but most brilliantly hilarious books you've ever had the pleasure of reading. And to think that someone knowingly threw it out. Madness! This exact scenario happened to Alina Pleskova when she came across Asher Jane's "Fancy Dress" book from 1986 lying on the curb when out for a walk.

Disturbingly Awkward Vintage Christmas Family Photos

The holiday season is a time when families come together to eat, argue, and remind you why you moved away in the first place. Part of the holiday fun nightmare is being forced to take some awkward photos in front of the Christmas tree that no one will ever look at again. Unless, of course, they are so uncomfortable and disturbing that they end up on the internet years later, like these creepily awkward photos.

Vintage Bridesmaids Dresses Which Are Hideous Eyesores

Matching Outfits In 70s Fashion Ads Are Utterly Ridiculous

Remember when you were a little kid, and your mom forced you and your siblings to wear matching, scratchy, ugly outfits? The shame, the embarrassment, and the discomfort you endured, all so that your mom could get some great family pics? Well, we took a look back at some 1970s fashion ads, and the outfits look precisely like the scenario we just described. A mixture of tartan, plaid, high-waisted belts, and stuffy cotton looking numbers, the 1970s isn't a time we want to revisit when it comes to vintage fashion. Check out some of these ridiculous matching outfits from 70s fashion ads, and be grateful that your mom was the only one forcing you to match, and not the catwalks.

Vintage Beauty Pageant Queens Of The Food Industry

I think it's safe to say that the concept of beauty pageants is somewhat outdated, at least in their original format of judging and ranking contestants' physical attributes only. But nestled among the beauty pageants of old are the lesser-known vintage food-themed contests, which saw women's beauty celebrated alongside various produce. From Miss Idaho Potato, 1935 to Donut Queen, 1951, here is the only beauty pageant I will endorse. Mixing food with fashion is something I will always support, and celebrating food, in general, is a worthy endeavor. So scroll through these bizarre pictures of the food industry's beauty queens and be as baffled but amazed as I am at their splendor.

Robert Downey Jr. As A Vintage Pin-Up Girl? Yes Please

The concept of pin-up girls — idealized painting or drawing of the female form designed for public display — was one of the key elements of 20th Century Americana. Most people are familiar with vintage images of women in bikinis or other skimpy clothing in various provocative poses, but few have been acquainted with these photoshopped versions. Welcome to the pin-up girls with a twist. And by twist, we mean with Robert Downey Jr.'s face. Yes, that's right, someone out there has spent time photoshopping his face onto classic pin-up girl's bodies, and we're not mad about it. We can only assume he would be if he saw them. Scroll through for some strange but funny eye-candy.

What Men Imagined The Women's Suffrage Movement Would Be Like (42 Pics)

Women's suffrage, the legal right of women to vote. Women's suffrage first began in 1848, when a women's rights convention was held in Seneca Falls, New York. 

And from the moment the word spread, the men dramatically feared the worst... stepping into their wives shoes. 

Must have been so awful being a housewife. Considering all the men who created these illustrations displaying their worst nightmare, becoming the housewife themselves. Oh, the absolute horror.
