A More Perfect Union Suit


You're warm. You're protected. And you look like a big doofus.

From the Toronto Star, 1951.

But do they have a trap door???

Bill said...

What's up with the weird black panel? Is it a built-in truss?

Amy said...

oh my goodness, how would they have gone to the toilet in the middle of the night in that?

Tori - I really do not know. Penman's doesn't say!

Bill - That was what caught my eye, the black panel. It really does look like a built-in truss. Eww.

Amy - Penman's was not thinking about this, unfortunately...

It's a tummy control panel -- don't tell me men don't need them too!

They did look ridiculous in those days - Then so did women ha ha!

It looks like a bad superhero suit. What about a trap door...real men don't need to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night:)

I know that Camel Toe started around 1973 but now I know the origin of Moose Knuckle. Thanks!

Eve - What in the world is a stadium pal? (I can guess but I could be wrong..)

Needless To Say - It could well be, I thought that too. Though you'd think vanity had gone out the window already in this case...

Babs - Yes indeed they did! I have some more ads in this vein, not underwear, but male fashion. Or lack thereof.

Tahtimbo - This is one superhero who may have trouble saving the day, though!

Loose Cannon - LOL!
