!! OMG, How Bulgy: Plaid polyester pants !!

The copy from this vintage JC Penney catalog from the 70s promises the most “Exciting colors and eye-catching patterns.”
Hm, those patterns are indeed pretty insane, but I’m not sure that they’re what’s catching my eye! If you know what I mean!
They weren’t joking around when they named it the “Big Men’s Shop”

    formerly ‘popular’ pants in 70’s = sad grandpa pants in 2010

  2. How else do you sell ugly polyester pants?

  3. I always show a big bulge – but only in the stomach area. 🙁

  4. I believe in miracles, where you from, you sexy thing?
    And by the way, I want Chuck’s number!

  5. I’ve always been a bulger and it can be a bit embarrassing at times. I’ve never though of myself as particularly big, but clothes just seem to fit me that way. If anyone knows any method of covering it up a little bit so presentations, etc. are a little less awkward, sock it to me…

  6. As someone who lived in the 70’s, these pictures prove true what I always said about that era; it was very popular and common to show peen and the polyester fabric made it very easy to make the crotch bulge more visible. Especially in the gay communiity.
