Arguably the finest retro ads for polyester slacks that you'll see today...

Picture 4Here’s something that won’t muck about with your delicate state this Saturday morning... MUCH. Purloined from BuzzFeed, it’s some 1971 ads for Lee trousers.

The concept behind the campaign? Lion’s heads. Genius.

    When he finished with those adverts and retired was that Lion old & rich eh? Bastard! A fiver to the person who can construct a similar sentence without the ampersand.

    I like how the first 5 adverts are completely sure Lee CAN change your image, but by Ad 6 they've lost their confidence a little and only claim they 'could'

    The last one is a bit gay.

    The back of todays Metro isn't too dissimilar. Apologies to anyone unfortunate enough to live up North.
