Generation X: Mid 60s – Mid 70s | Leisure Suits

Oh, my word, my word, my word.  (sigh)  I’m shaking my head and I haven’t even begun to jump into this.

This photo:  All those suits, but…THAT blue suit — actually, the hanger wearing the blue suit — and in the middle?  I can’t.  Where is this person?  They need a hug.

Now, this photo:  We start to head down another wrong road. Was this one of those photographs we used to take at Sears & Roebuck?  Who remembers going to Sears and getting a portrait?  (Do they still do that?  Although it would be 21st century backdrops and props, right?)  Anyone had a male family member who didn’t have a shot with this pose or have a jacket like this?  If you didn’t, thank your lucky stars.  Every time I look at this picture – Dead.  P.S.  The ‘stache is bitchin’.

*Stupified*:  I don’t know what to do here.  Should I laugh?  Should I cry?  How many times can I say, “Oh, my God.”  Is that a jumpsuit leisure suit?!  *stares at the screen*   “One easy piece” …and…”Fits so tight it shows all you’ve got…you’re a walking turn-on” — Oh my.   O__o   Hmmmm, let’s not try to avoid the “elephant in the room” — Hm, um, are you as disturbed as I am about the pole, or is that a tree branch?  And what’s with the “The Fifth Season”?  What does that mean???  Is that code for something?  You know what, don’t answer that.  Please.

These polyester/polyester-cotton blend crimes of fashion can make a grown Brainy Pint Sizer weep.  You should feel the same way too.  Let’s all hope that these will stay in specialty shops for Halloween, and not be brought into the stores for $59.95.  I don’t think we can handle a repeat of this…ever again.

Mercy.
