I pick up on one thing. Jump suits were cool, but only if there was an unneccesary belt included. Also, barrels were cool. That leads to the obvious question...... If you wear a barrel, what kind of belt do you wear?

I'm not sure if I have this straight though. Fuzzy toilets= cool?

Sad thing is if you see my Senior picture from High School, you'll see an outfit very similar to the lime one in the lower left hand corner of this pic, mine however had the combination of this fine style with the addition of the western shoulder motif seen in some of the other pics!

In the 1970s I had at one time permed hair, platform shoes, and a burnt orange leisure suit--and I'm not posting any photos to prove it. RFS has shown us the dangers of photography.
Hey, the fashions in the 1970s were terrible, but the Reds were much better.

This may be the best thread. ever. I would give just about anything on earth for that toilet tank cover. Not to mention the argyle-style barrel chairs. The fantastic thing is that the pictures that people have posted could almost be right out of the catalog. I'm not sure that we could say the same today. Remarkable. Kitty is foxy.

These are vaticanplum children circa 1980:

Now, we're not even in the right decade here, but apparently the 70s fashion was sooo great that there were holdovers. What I really want to discuss here is the jumpsuit. That's a boy, in case that isn't clear. My main question here is and has always been: how is a baby supposed to move around in that thing? I can't imagine that the wide-leg approach makes for easy crawling and toddling. Secondly, a dump truck and plaid go together...how? Third -- a wide collar? Really? Because when I think baby one piece, I immediately think of Osh Kosh, onesies with snaps, and...dress collars.

yellow is supposed to be the worst color for a room. It makes people anxious. Babies cry more in yellow bedrooms, people freak out in yellow kitchens. I learned this from my eighth grade science project, Colors and Their Effects on People. Maybe that's why everybody got so wacked out in the 80s, all the yellow that abounded in the 70s.

Who knows - 20/30 years from now my kids will probably be making light of the styles of today. Of course you should see my daughter's room and closet. It's straight out of the 60's/70's with her beads hanging everywhere and "Love American Style" decor. And she loves tie dye T-shirts.

Beanbag "chairs".

I had a cat that mistook the styrofoam pellets in it for kitty litter. Nothing like sitting down in cat pee.

I know better that to post any Roy pictures from that era. I was college age then so I didn't have any of the JC Penney catalog garb. More, it was post-'60's evolutionary weirdness. My mutton chops were quite spectacular. They got shaved off and I grew a fu manchu with lip beard. Then a Grizzly Adams style beard. I don't think I ever lacked for some kind of facial hair. My hair was long but I blow-dried it every day to give that body. Bell bottoms of every style, embroidered, patched, etc. Mickey Mouse work shirts. I think I had a pair of leather boots that laced up to the knee. And earth shoes.

Don't laugh. Everyone will be using furniture like that in the year 2000. I know because I have seen it in movies.

They absolutely will be.

I think fashions go through a period of ridicule about 20 years after they are popular, then spring up again about ten years later as being cool and fashionably retro.

I remember my folks making fun of the thin neckties of the 50s and early 60s, only to find us wearing thin ties in the mid 80s. Then we made fun of sideburns, long flowing hair, bell-bottoms, and wide collars, but I've seen some of those things in recent years.

My wife has been wanting one of those haircuts where it is very short in the back and then gets progressively longer in the front (like David Beckham's wife, the Spice Girl, wears). I cautioned her that 20 years from now people are going to look at that haircut, roll with laughter, and wonder what they were thinking.

As if the furniture and the colors aren't enough- the thing about the 70s that was particularly awful was the handcraft fad- like the two string things hanging above the couch below. My mom made all kinds of yarn macromet stuff. <SHUDDER>Ohhh....</SHUDDER>

Great pictures and comments.

I'll try and pretend that I didn't have some of those outfits.

Ah, the 70s. Not exactly a high point for fashion.

That belt would make a good gun belt. There is a picture of me hanging at my mom's with me wearing almost the exact same outfit as that kid. My belt was solid white though. :eek:

"Cowboy Chachi loves you best."

I think that's my favorite.

Looks like my school pictures in grade school. Each year my mom hit a different '70s fad, whether it be leisure suits, disco, urban cowboy, etc. It really made me long for the few years I spent in Catholic school, where all I had to worry about was avoiding stains on my uniform.

It really went down hill when the Brady men got their hair permed. :p:

Cut-offs.

If you know what those are, you were a teenager in the 70's.

I wore leisure suits, fat ties, and plaid pants with my mutton chop sideburns.

For whatever the reason as a youngster back in the seventies I had a photographic memory when it came to television shows,celebrities and the like. I don't know if this is the same guy from my previous post(the pic with the man and woman in a bikini)..it looks like it to me...he was also one of the Sweathogs.
