When Manly Men Wore Questionable Slacks

The 1960s-70s h.i.s ads are classic. Before becoming an actor, Nick Nolte modeled for them. (His ad, plus four others, inside.)

1. The “Anti-Establishment Post-Grad Slacks”

O Brother. “Our Post-Grad Slacks have soul.” Look at his expression; looks like he’s ready to punch a hole in the wall the second the shoot’s over.

2. That’s Nick Nolte in the middle

Nolte, finished with a long hard day of dogie rustling, is about to hit the town with his pardners in search of a fine cold sasparilla.

3. DEATH PANTS! Is that a young George Takei, left?

“Ask not. They’re for you…and come in a ring-a-ding assortment of colors and fabrics. They’re definitely becoming a novel American great.” The cool black dude’s slacks have foodstuffs all over them.

4. A “Tom Jonesey shirt with balloon sleeves…”

What’s new Pussycat?

5. “Scorer” Slacks

Slack Power’s wingman.
