    I love that hairdo on the left. Like he was wedged between two trains the whole ride going from New York to Boston.

    I have no idea what Crimplene is but my guess is some kind of non-wrinkle/crimp thing. Whatever it is the guy on the left used it on his hair.

    Oh Doug….Oh Allee! I love the mens undies that use that stretchy stuff to make a mans movement much easier. Why would any one want to have anything like that in any article of clothing, yet alone undies.

    They tried to NOT be dashing and debonair, but they failed, oh yes, they failed…….i think crimplene was a nonwrinkle fabric….probably didn’t breathe at all, and after claiming more lives than polyester, was taken off the market…….that’s my guess……

    For a second there I thought this was from the cover of Pink Floyd’s first album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. The guys on the right are a bit too clean cut for that, but a few purple unicorns and I think they’d be on their way.

    My grandfather was in the shmata business and made shirts for Montgomery Wards, Sears and others. I remember shirts he made in this style, but I don’t think they were made of this particular miracle fabric. He was a big believer in the 60/40 cotton/poly mix.
