Lose: Retro Male Advertisements


I’m doing a paper on fashion advertisements for my visual communication class, and in my search I ran into these old school ads for some very… interesting male fashion choices. From jump suits that would make Juicy Couture shudder to man tights that belong in an American Apparel ad, some things should just stay in the past! Enjoy!

  3. Some of these ads are simply not suitable for life. I love the Braemar one though, “Preston knew he could always depend on three things: his charm, his trust fund and his Braemar sweater.” If only we were this blunt in our advertising now. At least they new who their target market was!
