Shorts are short. That's why they're called shorts. But men's shorts in the 1970s took short to a whole new level, and all we can say is that we're glad the 70s are over! Check out this funny list of disco-era fashion fails to see what we mean. In it you'll find everything from dodgy denim numbers and terribly tight tear-offs to suspiciously short sports shorts and lady-killing khaki cut-offs. Oh, and bloke bulges. Lots of bloke bulges. Don't say we didn't warn you! (h/t: vintage everyday)
