Stubbies!

Over on starsky_hutch a poster commented that short shorts with long socks looked kinda funny ("laughing hysterically" was the actual term used) and wanted to know whether that really was good fashion in the 70s?

Yup. Check out the ad here for Stubbies, which are still the staple outfit of the well-dressed truckie. Once teamed almost exclusively with the ubiquitous navy blue singlet, but now paired with fluoro yellow visibility shirts.

When compared with the baggy, draggy shorts worn hanging off the hips and with the crotch at knee-level, one has to wonder which is the greater crime against fashion.
