About Leisure Suits

The 1970s was a time when fashion had just come through one of its most overtly glamorous and rigidly defined eras, the 1950s and 1960s, and designers were pushing back against those trends with loud, comfortable suits. The leisure suit, with its wide lapels and loose fit, is perfectly emblematic of this push back against the establishment. Made in muted or garish colors, men's leisure suits met the Hippie scene head-on. You can find and purchase a vintage leisure suit on eBay where many options in terms of style, cut, and color are available to consumers. Sellers are reliable and shipping options are flexible and affordable. A leisure suit can be a fun retro fashion statement, a costume for a costume party, or just something to wear to upset the status quo. It is a unique article of clothing that brings a little bit of the flower power and love and riot attitude of 1970s fashion wherever it goes.
