While looking at advertisements for women’s undergarments of the past can be a “ha, ha” experience, vintage men’s underwear ads are downright hilarious. Let’s look at some of the manly versions, if you can call them that. Don’t worry, we ended up peeing our pants too.
1. Oh You and Your Flappy Pants
There’s nothing quite like the male bonding that happens over a quality discussion about underwear – while all while we stand talking in our tightie whities. Yup, you just can’t beat a talk about bias cut, now can you?
2. Flair Under There
3. All Kinds of Awkward
There’s nothing so manly as standing around in your Jockeys and smiling, right? That’s the premise of this 1970s Jockey ad, anyway. We love how the t-shirts match the briefs. Way to coordinate it, boys.
4. So Then The Porno Started
5. Zoo Animals Dig it
6. Fun Is One Word For It
Just when you thought the retro ads couldn’t get any more douchey… Here you go. You know that some wild orgies happened after this photo shoot, don’t you?
7. Well, It’s Something Alright
Thank you to this vintage men’s underwear ad for reminding us what not to wear these days. We really don’t want to know why they’re smiling. Although we’re sure that it’s a creepy reason.
8. Cowboy It Up
9. Believable? Nope.
10. A Fruit By Any Other Name
11. Jock Rockstar
Did you try to order this amazing find years ago? Perhaps the horny bastard in this ad beat you to it.
The kid’s face says it all – horrific! Oui, oui.
13. He Looks Different Somehow
In 1965, this ad was born. It’s a “monster of a value” but, seriously let’s make sure it dies a sudden death, shall we?
Yes, these are all vintage men’s underwear ads that really did exist back in the day! We can’t make this stuff up. If you want some “underflair” of your own, you could try to take a selfie of yourself that rivals these ads but we think it’d be pretty tough to top them. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to gouge out our eyes. Want to join us?
