Ah, the 1970s: a time when this nation was affected by race riots, police brutality, a “drug war,” and wars in foreign lands. In other words, it was a period just like today.
However, instead of wearing oversized sweatsuits and white sneakers (like Kanye and Justin), the stylish man of the day opted for something more…ELEGANZA!
Billed, in the ad below, as “the boldest collection of dashing apparel and dramatic imported footwear anywhere,” Eleganza’s lineup of fancy frocks wasn’t something one had to hunt-down; rather, it was accessible through your mailbox.
The handsome gent pictured below is making things happen, via mesmerizing shirt collars, boldly-detailed slacks (pants aren’t for this 1970s hunk of dude), and of course, a “dramatic” pair of high-heeled, lace-up shoes.
