This is hilarious to any of us who can remember those halcyon days of mooseknuckle and Tiger Beat hair.

You wouldn’t believe how many guyditorials we consider featuring and wind up rejecting. Easily three for every one that appears on the site. Guyditorials are just so damn boring; jeans, t-shirts, one button-down, one polo and maybe a sweater. Add a car, a desert backdrop and a brooding star who touches his face a lot and you’ve just copied about 98 percent of them.

And while, to our eyes, these looks are heinously ugly, we have to say the whole set of pictures brought smiles to our faces. Sometimes, you just have to let the gays put together a good guyditorial in order to make it fun. So feather your hair and break out your high-waisted bell bottoms, guys. According to Out, it’s time once again.

We’ll just sit on the sidelines and laugh, if you don’t mind. We can’t believe we ever wanted to grow up to look just like this (and drive a van with an airbrushed unicorn on the side), but trust us, plenty of the boys of the ’70s thought these looks were the absolute most.

      Whoa. Serious flashback!! I do like the gold James Jeans in the second-to-last pic.

      Is it wrong that I am coveting the hair of the long-haired dude?

      • lilazander

        Flashback indeed, but I think waay too literal. It lacks creativity and imagination, rather it,s a copy attempt.

        • TieDye64

          True, but it’s fun as hell. And it’s cracking me up to no end, so it’s a win in my eyes. 

      • librarygrrl64

        No, because it’s definitely a ladywig.

        • Anathema_Device

          I guess I’m just ready for a wig b/c I’m sick of trying to grow my hair out.

          I’m quite sure it’s the “Farrah”

        • Sophie Collier

          Nope, that’s his real hair, albeit boofed up to the sky.  Google “Miles McMillan” and you’ll see he’s got long, pretty, wavy hair.

      • P M

         Hey, I want that hair too!

      • AZU403

        It’s too bad that no one knows how to do 70s not-so-big hair the right way. This guy just looks like he’s wearing a wig. Didn’t the stylists look at John Revolta photos?

        A lot of us spent good money trying to get hair like that.

    • JosephLamour

      That is one bad wig. Or it least it looks like a bad wig. I love all of these clothes tho! I’m really digging the grey boots.

      • vanjar

         I also thought that was a wig, but I googled the guy and now I think they teased his hair within an inch of its life.

        • http://profiles.google.com/sara.e.munoz Sara Munoz

          Okay. WOW. WOWEE. These pictures do not do him justice. 

        • http://twitter.com/SparklyCasanova UglyCasanova

          You googled they guy?  You know his name?  Spill it, he is quite de-lish and the other one too.

        • http://twitter.com/SparklyCasanova UglyCasanova

          Oops, never mind, I see the names now.  I tend to scan … than read … my mistake.

      • StillGary

        Ok, I sorta remember poofy unruly hair in the 70s (especially among the burnouts — but I don’t remember any dudes with a Jaclyn  Smith!

      • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

        Those grey boots are GORGEOUS, but definitely not 70′s.  I want those boots.

      i think i dated a couple of these guys…in 1977…:)

    • Beardslee

      aah, memories.  I don’t think any of the boys at my high school were as cute as these two are, under the hair.

      • formerlyAnon

         Oh, we had some cuties. And let me tell you, my boyfriend’s auburn locks would put these messy-headed over-styled & art-directed models’ hair to shame.

        Damn, I loved long hair on men.

        • TheDivineMissAnn

          TRUE THAT!  Loved long hair on men then, love long hair on men now!  In his High School picture, my husband’s hair looked like Jesus’s.  Now….not so much.

          o.t.- not sure on the”Jesus” punctuation and now it’s making me twitch

          • formerlyAnon

            Sadly, though, men who are “age appropriate” for me now rarely have hair I’d want to see long. (And I’m including those10-12-ish years younger, which is about as far as I can go, if I have to actually, well, *talk* to them.)

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=12801074 Brett Hulst

      I could deal with Missoni knit top. This whole spread is perfect for 4/20.

    • EAV

      Alright alright alright!

    • cmb92191

      The long haired guy looks like  1970′s Geddy Lee-especially with the mirrored sunglasses and vest.

      • TheDivineMissAnn

        In the first picture, the guy on the right looks like Joe Perry.

      • mskgb

        Me, too!  Vinnie Barbarino and the gang……

        • TheOriginalLulu

          LMAO you beat me to it…
          and you’re showing your age. ;)

          • Judy_J

            I’m afraid my age shows in most all my comments…… :)

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_YAMNQMUGFM4NNSPAQLZRODSD5I Angela

          That made me laugh out loud! And leads us to my favorite John Travolta joke: 
          He used to look like a damn Greek god, now he looks like a goddamn Greek!

      • formerlyAnon

         For “some reason”? You know darn well why! ;-)

      • TieDye64

        Oh yeah.

    • Lori

      This is comedy gold, but I hope to FSM folks aren’t actually going to start wearing those clothes again. 

    • sherrietee

      I’m enjoying the Eddie Van Halen wig.  That’s just all kinds of awesome.

      • TieDye64

        It really is. And to think there was a time a really thought that was hot. 

    • http://twitter.com/PlanetSandisan Sandisan

      LOVE.  

    • ballerinawithagun

      The guy with the long hair looks just like a former boyfriend. He was voted “Best Hair” in high school.

      No underwear allowed, as with those tight white jeans, everyone knew exactly what was going on in their pants. (Of course, there were guys who actually stuffed back then)

      I like the last photo for a current look but it doesn’t fit with the rest of the photo shoot.

      • TxMom2011

        Hahaha! I haven’t thought about guys who “stuffed” in years!

    • TheOriginalLulu

      It’s Vinnie Barbarino!!!!

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/DNWEFT2SVBX5T3NPMROQCT4U2U jennyv

      LOVE!!! I can’t see the men of today rocking these looks, but these guys look so damn cool.

    • http://twitter.com/starrika Ali

      Perhaps because I didn’t live through it the first time – LOVE this. Would love to see these looks again!

    • http://twitter.com/amywatts Amy Watts

      There’s a major Kristen Stewart vibe in the “Terry cloth polo shirt by Orlebar Brown” picture.

      • godot mo

        Ooh! I liked that one (and the next after it) because they made me think of Patti Smith, but either way. Mmm, androgyny.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Very fun!  The hair is a bit MUCH – a little too 80′s women’s shampoo commercials vs. the 70′s guys I recall.  But I dig it…

      • formerlyAnon

         Yes. The hair is too much, only a few with truly unruly hair and/or a serious affinity for hairspray had hair like that.

    • MK03

      Oh, the 70s: When it was impossible not to look like a hustler.

    • http://twitter.com/dodgefan Lisa Weaver

      Did someone steal Katharine Bach’s hair from the Dukes of Hazzard? Or was it Jaclyn Smith’s do from Charlie’s Angels? 

    • umeboshi

      i would then. i would now.

    • uprightcitizen

      I was a teenager then, and the shirts are dead-on (that Missoni is terrific), and the pants are right for the most part (although the Abboud ones don’t have a 70′s fit … they’re a little high-waisted and/or not quite tight enough). But I NEVER, EVER saw any guy rat his hair in the back to create the look the guy with the longer hair is wearing. Long hairstyles for men always tried to differentiate themselves from women by appearing super masculine. If a guy’s hair had that appearance at all (think Barry Gibb or maybe even David Cassidy on a windy day), it had to do with the shape of his head or just waking up … it wasn’t intentional. This looks like “That Girl” drag. I can’t believe how much he looks like Gilda Radner in some of those shots.

      But I always thought I got a raw deal as a gay man because I was just a young teen in the mid-seventies. By the time I came out in the early 80s, being a super-skinny guy in the mold of Robbie Benson, Michael Sarrazin or Chris Sarandon was no longer the ideal. I was a skinny dude in a world where you were expected to be a puffed-up gym boy. Alas, timing is sometimes everything.

      • HomeOfficeGirl

        Right!  70′s super skinny was the thing!!  And, guys hair was long-ish or big-ish, or flowy-ish – but NOT all this Breck volume.  But fun to remember anyway…

        • judybrowni

          exactly.

          Those are women’s wigs.

          Also: the style was “natural” more how your hair fell on it’s own, rather than that controlled.

    • http://profiles.google.com/marteani Barbara Guttman

      Let me tell you why I hate James Jeans.  Every time Fabulous Artist James Jean does a pattern for someone (Prada, GAP, whatever) and I try to search for it, all the results I get are for “James Jeans.”  I don’t even know what they are but it’s the wrong James and not as fabulous.

      Also, I love this shoot, even though someone’s bump-it is showing.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2CNDPMVO4W23R5TVC2QMTJ5BZE Heather

      Omigod. Awesome. That’s all I can say.

    • Sally Brownson

      Can we have tight bulge-showing jeans back? I don’t care what they do at the bottom, but they were a good thing. I know some of the hipsters are going in for them, but they’re also wearing boxers with them which ruins the effect :/

      • OmegaMu

        Those white jeans are telling me more than I need to know about that young man!

    • filmcricket

      Those wigs are hilarious. One looks like Gilda Radner, the other like Kate Jackson. Also, I’m going to watch Dazed and Confused this weekend now.

      • formerlyAnon

         Oh, I thought Dazed and Confused *was* my high school, till I watched it with my husband, who went to high school in Corpus Christi. And then I realized, no, it was HIS high school!

    • dorothea_brooke

      I feel older than usual after that. It was cute, but they’re all too clean looking. Not enougn pot stench.

      I was a high school freshman in 1978.  Boy do I remember tight jeans and big hair on guys.  I keep thinking all these drooping pants kids are missing out on just how good a man’s rear view can look (lol).

      • mountainFashionista

         I keep hoping that Bonobos brand pants are going to be a huge hit one of these days!  But then, I’m an ass woman…

      • carolynmo

        I was a freshman in ’76! I remember these looks vividly. I’m smiling, too, guys, but horrified as well.

    • EEKstl

      OMIGOD I just had a flashback to high school and my first boyfriend.  He looked like this (and was almost as cute, lucky me!).

    • Jessica O’Connell

      There are some really uncomfortably tight looking pants in there… getting some maneltoe!

      • BarbaraNovak

        And yet back in the day, many wore them tighter.  Ah, the memories!

      They couldn’t get GOOD wigs?

      Seriously, please don’t tell me that’s their own hair, because if so this is supposed to be some sort of ironic take on actual ’70s hair, and I do not approve. Will not sign off.

      Just about the only great thing about ’70s styles for men, other than boots, was long hair. Don’t mess it up with this bird’s nest crap. My nerves won’t take it.

      The late 60s and 70s imprinted upon me that long hair on guys is sexy. And the brief period when I was adventurous, self confident and single coincided with the period when short hair was in, which I felt was quite unfair. (Nowadays, well, the age appropriate guys don’t have hair you *want* to see long, but that’s a personal problem, neither her nor there. Sigh.)

    • rainwood1

      Thanks for the time machine, T Lo.  I totally remember this look although I didn’t know any guy whose hair was quite that thick and luscious.  If that’s not a wig, I have total hair envy.  

    • Lisa Kramp

      That’s not 70′s feathered guy hair. That’s 70′s Marie Osmond/Dorothy Hammill hair. THAT”S why you covet it! The clothes look good except for the striped jeans. Those would have gotten your ass kicked anywhere in Michigan for those things. (From one who had the Hammill in Ninth Grade)

He keeps it too short now, I’d love to see those long curls again, but he insists on being “professional” looking.  Whatever.

      I’d wear the Dior Homme and James Jeans jeans but otherwise no.  Already been there and done this–and even then because a) I was a teenager and b) everyone else was wearing them.  These are ghastly looks, and the apparent lack of irony (in the clothes not the styling) makes me seriously afraid.

      there actually are more than a few pictures of crazyspouse floating around online where he looks pretty much just like this–only a decade or two later [late 80s/early 90s]. if he werent 1/ maybe dying, & 2/ totally impossible & refusing to be medically compliant, absolutely forcing the whole dying business–well, i would probably post a link or two. right now i am so very exhausted that i dont even have the patience to dig any up.

      were i to say that these [to me, anyway] were the most attractive guys you have posted in the years i have been reading this site i am afraid it would only prove that i was ten years old when robert plant & jimmy page–not to mention the great marc bolan–were the most perfect beings on earth. oh, were it still so now.

        There’s something to be said for appearing on regretsy as the individual who is raising their eyebrow, not as the disdained object of the eyebrow raise.

        The young men of our youth shall beguile our memories in old age, assuming we have either old age or, in our old age, memories.

        Bear up as best you can.

      Oh God.  I think I dated one of these guys (or their analog).  Of course – you’d need a trip in the Way-back Machine to find them again (or I could just break out Patti Smith’s ‘Horses’ and remember).  Looking at those jeans now – all I kept thinking about was Duluth Trading Company’s ‘Ball-room’ Jeans.  Glad those weren’t around then.  I think I enjoy the Robert Plant specials much better. ;) 

      Thanks for the old school eye candy.

      This just looks like Kristen Stewart to me

      Pretty boys.

      The guy with the shorter hair? Can I just tell you that hairstyle is back in for teenage boys and has been for a while? Seriously. I think the whole editorial is hilarious, but eerie, as I remember the 70s, and the thought of any nostalgia for that fashions sense is both funny and scary.

      Not very forgiving on the body, eh? Every peanut you eat is going to show up

    • quiltrx

      Wow…I had to check out Miles to see if that hair was for real…and damn, in his normal look, I would really consider robbing THAT cradle. :)

      These boys ARE the high school seniors I saw walking down the hall in 1977.

      Fifth picture down, model on the right = YUM.

      Sure, this is silly and literal, but so much more attractive and interesting than almost any other male fashion editorials.  I say drag it up!

    • kingderella

      cute. id style it way differently, but id totally rock the missoni knit and the mustard hermes.

    • karingallagher

      Aaaaaaaand you’ve just reinvigorated my childhood crush on Matt Dillon.

    • GTrain

      I cannot with that long super inflated hair.

    • kjthorp

      LMAO!!!
      I had the shearling coat. I thought I was sooo cool.

    • Susan Crawford

      Say what you will about the clothes, but the Brutini footwear is to die for. (And the Z Zwgna crocheted polo? That is fabboo.)

      • Laura Valentine

        The footwear is great, I agree. My husband would love those boots, in particular. 

    • bitterk

      Love love love.  I’m in 7th grade all over again!

    • meowing

      To take me back to my ’70s-days-of-youth, need to add a jacket with the super long fringe on the sleeves.  And my boyfriend back then had the same bouffant long hair.  I’d love to have his hair now!

    • boweryboy

      Hell to the no.

      The fashion and overall editorial is a bit too literal for my tastes.

      Although back in the early ’80s I had a cruch on my best friend’s brother who looked and dressed like the guy with the short hair.  Believe it or not, his name was Butch.

      Do all the work you can; that is the whole philosophy of the good way of life.

    • bailey debruynkops

      these looks are still the most. i work in a vintage store and dress my boyfriend exactly in this manner (he has outfits identical the the model’s with shorter hair). rep-re-sent.

      White jeans + visible bulge = your very own portable  sundial

      The model with long hair is channeling Val Kilmer circa Jim Morrison. 

    • margaret meyers

      Could we see these pants with Tony Ward in them?  I think we’d all really enjoy it.

    • tsid2012

      OMG!  LOL!  As a former young gay in the late 70′s & early 80′s, I truly can’t believe we used to desire this.  Actually, even then, I always looked right past the skinny, feathered hair younguns and wondered “I’ll bet his Dad is hot….”

    • lesmaha

      that is some FAB hair!!!

    • ersatzhipster

      As a woman I totally want to wear 90% of these outfits. Hm.

    • h2olovngrl

      Mu uncle had a yellow van with a soaring eagle painted on it and the words “Free Bird” scrolled across it. Just doesn’t get more 70′s than that!

    • Charles Prescott

      The only thing that would make these even more perfect would have been to include some Tiffany hanging lamps and diagonal wood planking on the walls. Oh, and don’t forget the asparagus ferns. And baskets. Loads and loads of baskets. And not just the Out Magazine kind.
