The sexual revolution, disco music, feminism, free-flowing hallucinogenic drugs, and pacifism is the mish-mash of things that once created the absolutely unique 70s style that we so lovingly hate to remember. While there was some pretty awesome stuff going on in the fashion trends department, 70s men's fashion seems to have skipped all the cool stuff and went straight for the disastrous. Men's clothing made from shiny spandex? Groovy! Hip-hugging bell bottom pants, also glossy? You betcha! Chest hair, porn-stache, bright leisure suits, and skimpy short shorts defining the men's fashion? Far out! There's no way these 70s fashion relicts will ever come back in all their seriousness, so we can happily reminisce them in the safety of our jeggings and Yeezys, without fearing to witness a man-bulge wandering in the streets.

If you are still not convinced of the crimes that fashions of the 70s have committed, check out these men's fashion disasters from the decade to see what we mean. Compiled by Bored Panda, the list contains an appalling array of atrocities that the designers themselves cannot defend. So scroll down below to check the gloriously disturbing fashions below, but be warned, as it might get quite NSFW.
