I had a "terrycloth thingy" as well. It was not striped, but turquoise. Kind of a zip-up unitard/hot pants deal.

I think these items for men are what spurred the "Iron John" movement! Give me sweaty flannel and jeans anytime. Guys.. how did you ENDURE the seventies? Did you scorn or envy the fact that David Cassidy's hair was nicer than your girlfriend's?

Great pics...I love seeing faces of my internet buds.

When I think about what I wore in the early 70's, my mind always goes to fishnet pantyhose and go go boots. (Well at least that's what they called them in the Midwest)

And of course.....hot pants!

Well, I was thinking about saying something until I remembered the toga parties and such back in college in the 60's and 70's.

Not that I would admit going to any....

Oh, I don't know......a pink towel never goes out of style!

Maybe we were hoping for something that was more typical of the era, like, say, groovy wallpaper.........

Flocked wallpaper is evil.

Back in the '70s I rented a room in a house with a landing (once you entered the house you had to walk up or down stairs); there were pink shag carpets; the wall along the stairs to the main floor was glass tiles with a mural of running horses.

Probably no bra either. Some of us were not Sears and JC Penney, but war surplus and Goodwill.

How did we wear those things? And weren't the lenses glass? Or were there plastic lenses by the mid-70s?

Okay LG4N---where is your other leg? And why are you holding the alarm clock?
I was waiting for some other comments? And what was the name of the poodle on your head? Nice pink towel for sure. And, the obvious question---who goes to a party in a towel?

Martha, those glasses were, well, I'm speechless.
