1960s men’s clothing changed from the conservative yet relaxed 1950s fashion into simplified clothing. Casual was in, formality was out. By the mid ’60s men’s fashion took a sharp turn and flew across the pond to the Mod style worn by British musicians. The Beatles, beatniks, and Steve McQueen were fashion idols for a few years until the late 60s hippie movement brought out anti-fashion bell bottom pants, crazy shirts, platform shoes and polyester everything. This continued into the 1970s where a return to earthy folk hippie fashion dominated the decade. 70s disco fashion added some flashy outfits to otherwise nature-inspired colors and fabrics. Men’s bell bottoms pants, 70s shirts and platform shoes grooved on and off the dance floor.
