Men in Tights

As if the previous post wasn't bad enough, now we have 'men' in hosiery (sadly, still available in 2010 from  SHQ) What the hell was going on in '61 and why is it still going on now? I'm all for a cosy red union suit but a chap really has to draw the line somewhere. Holding a gun whilst wearing tights does nothing to balance the situation.

The Year that Trousers Went Wrong

Tight, synthetic trousers: a revolting fad that has somehow reappeared in the 21st century, especially among British lower management. At least we no longer have the stirrups.
From Playboy, November 1961.
