70's MEN'S FASHION
70's Men's Fashion: High-Waist Trousers, Bell Bottoms, Floral Print Shirts, Polka Dots - These were the "In" stuff of the time! - 'WOW'
1970s men's fashion was characterized by several distinct fashion trends that have left an indelible image of the decade. These include platform shoes which appeared on the fashion scene in 1971 and often had soles two to four inches thick.
These were worn by both men and women, who also often wore high platform sandals. Wide-legged, flared jeans and trousers were another fashion mainstay for both sexes throughout most of the decade.
We can see several of these mainstays in the picture above - Fuller hair with a longer cut over the ears, long-sleeve dress shirt with wide pointed collar, high-waist trousers with front crease and patch pockets.
Also the use of a wide leather belt with large square buckle, prints including stripes and plaid, bell-bottom trousers with flare and wide cuffs, and of course platform shoes. These two guys have all that going on!
