I found this hilarious, 1970’s rust-colored, one-piece, 100% Polyester Men’s jumpsuit at a garage sale.  The woman who sold it to me said it belonged to her (no longer living) father who was a character actor, and proudly mentioned he had “exquisite taste” in clothes.

My 5′ 6″ frame would swim in this, so I corralled my 6’4″ friend, Todd (not his real name) into wearing it for a photo.  Turns out he was way too big for it as you can see, but it made the picture that much funnier. The tag inside states that it’s a Medium but  Todd says it will probably fit a guy between 5’8″ – 6′, adding the tighter the fit the better to showcase the junk.

    My wife’s Dad had one that color. He was still wearing either that one, or the royal blue well into the 1980’s.

    I want one now to wear to a family gathering.
