How Hawt???

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present for your pleasure The Zippered Jacket.

Cannot decide which sends me wobbly with desire more...
  • the gun
  • the haircut
  • the zip pockets
  • or the gigantic zit in the middle of his chest
My mother is a machine-knitter. A very very keen machine-knitter. So keen, in fact that she is Vice President of the NSW Machine Knitters Association. Yes. Living in her shadow is a trial. No arguments about that.

She has a huge, massive, gigantic (do you see I'm trying to suggest its pretty large here) collection of so called 'knitting fashion magazines' dating from the very earliest days of machine knitting.  This one I'm guessing is late 60s.  I confess that when I get a quiet moment at her place I sneak off to her library and amuse myself with the pictures.

Its selfish of me to keep these gems to myself, and so, in future, shall be posting some of them up for everyone.

8 people love me:

I'm left pondering exactly what landscape he is trying to camouflage himself into?? Mardi Gras? A Starsky & Hutch convention? And in that case, what the heck is he hunting?? Food for thought, Cait, food for thought...

Looks like it could be from the 70s, judging by the Farrah Fawcett-esque hairdo...you could get one just like it and show your true devotion :D
