This might be from the 80s, but it's also part of the designer jeans craze of the late 70s-early 80s. I still remember the lyrics from this song decades afterward.

If only I still had the polyester shirt covered in tiny, millimeter-wide black, gray, tan and yellow ovals. IF ONLY.

international male still does gigolo wear.

Astounding fact: I bought a pair of suede shoes there (the I.M. Hollywood Blvd. store) and they still fit, still look good, still feel comfortable, and aren't worn down.  AND THAT WAS OVER 30 YEARS AGO.

It can't be a celebration of '70s clothing ads without this. This was my favorite TV commercial of 1972 (yeah, I'm old), and I still love it today. This is a long-form (full minute) ad for Levi's jeans that was known for its stop-motion photography and earworm-inducing soundtrack. Not very many TV spots these days run for a full minute, save for Super Bowl advertising (think the wonderful Budweiser ads), mostly because networks want to cram as much advertising (and ad revenue) into a commercial break as they can. I wish this was a better quality video. Enjoy!

"grin & wear it" was the slogan; I never actually owned any A. Smile clothes, but I always saw their ads in seventeen magazine.

Nothing is better than Landlubber clothes…Collapse )
