I don’t know why, but every time I see any of these vintage ads with a male model in them, it makes me smile.
It could be the fact that most times, the sweater they are modeling would probably look better on a woman?
Or it could be the serious expression of yarn lust they are clearly wearing?
But, I think the real reason is that they are just so purely 70s from the shag hair to the orange color hazed photo filter.
I always wonder if the orange color is from age, or was everything just that color?
Interesting Fact: DuPont (see their little logo in the bottom right hand corner of the picture) created the first acrylic fibers in 1941 and trademarked them under the name Orlon (Dupont website). They have since moved on to producing Kevlar fabric and sold it’s fiber business to Koch Industries (Dupont).
