Men in Belted Sweaters

No, this is not the cover of a porn magazine. I’m pretty sure it contained knitting patterns with which you could make a gift that the man in your life would die for. Or maybe die of embarrassment. Oh well, it was only 35 cents -or ten cents if you bought it used.

While the fashions of the 1970s could be pretty weird, they were never as weird as the advertisements for them. Even at the time, we wondered if the models realized how very uncool the pictures were. Men in Belted Sweaters is just one small part of a roundup of strange catalog entries, advertisements, and fashion shoots featuring menswear of the ‘70s.  -via Boing Boing

My mother was an avid, accomplished knitter. She would get this sort of magazine so we would be walking around town with the latest fashions (including belted sweater vests). Wish I still had more of her talented work.

Oh yeah, if you want to call this knitter pron. go right ahead. I I think she would have agreed.
