Are You Man Enough?

Nope, and evidently none of these folks are either.

Fresh atrocities I see! but none can compare with the Man Vest!
Though some of these do come close!

Holy. Schmoley. I see it but I don't believe it. Do you think these come from the days when gay boys couldn't come out and had to have a semi-secret code to communicate with each other? Cos that's the only explanation I can come up with.

Actually, I've changed my mind. No gay man with any pride would have been seen dead looking like this even in 1970!

oooh thanks for the Tim Brooke-Taylor String vest flashback I got after looking at the first pic.

Ah the Olden Days when men wore their chest hair with pride...

Do you think some poor husbands actually had to wear similar vestments because their crafty wives had slaved long and hard over them? Or do you think they would have taken one look and told them what they could do with their hand-crafted goodness?

And WHAT is with that beer hat?

Okay.... they guy in the striped v-neck with strip of fabric around his neck looks like a transvestite without make-up on. Sick, very sick. If I weren't laughing I'd be nauseous. Very nauseous.

Man o' man...seriously hilarious!

You've got to feel sorry for the boys in the matching father-son outfits. Its one thing for a consenting adult to wear these items, quite another for minors to be subjected to knitting and crochet abuse.

(and I think I recognise that beer hat...maybe my Mum had the pattern book it came from. If I'm not mistaken it was a Women's Weekly one and contained a multitude of novelty knitted and crocheted atrocities!)

Oh yes, the beer hat was what all fashionable yobbos were wearing in Sydney at one time.

I am seriously sure an ex-boyfriend's father had a VB/Tooheys one. Much nicer than this one, had a lime green trim as I recall.

V-necked stripe - the woman is saying "hey, how come you have a bigger cleavage than I do? And how many times have I told you not to wear my scarves?"

I find it interesting that no child in those photos is looking at the adult. Kids can be so switched on to bad fashion, can't they? That poor little bugger in the last photo just looks ashamed. And with good reason.
