Public Indecency

Follies of the Mad Men #35

[From Life magazine for June 2 1952.]

Yes, in the 1950's every husband and father had to be emasculated in every possible way. Imagine trying to conduct some kind of Tennessee Williams-inspired affair with your local Liz Taylor of the suburbs while wearing these. The laughter would be heard from one end of the motel to the other!

Anti-Plumber’s-Butt Shirts


The Duluth Trading Company specializes in unique "longtail" shirts that help alleviate the problem and social ill of "Plumber's Crack." They've obviously invested much thought in the matter, as you can see from this schematic of the problem. But useful and practical as such shirts may be, there's simply no excuse for Plumber's Butt Playing Cards.
