I think my grandmother wore something like that! Good Lord. Can't imagine my dad pointing to that in a catalogue and saying, "you know what honey, I don't have enough ruffly things, order me one in brown".
Hey, this was popular in the 70's............the 1770's.

I'm still trying to figure out how my dad survived the 70s. He would punch out men who wore that.

Oh Lordy, there are so many things wrong with those shirts; it's hard to find a place to start.
Was this back when 'Roots' was in vogue? It would explain the puffy pirate shirt look.
Now, without the ruffles, they look fine. Nice, clean simple lines; which is what really makes a man's shirt look good.
The only time ruffles belong on a man's shirt is when he's at a wedding or a prom, and that is IT!
At least the men in these pics are relatively good looking, that's one saving grace.
Austin Powers could make it work.
Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.
I'd argue that even then, they should be verboten!!!The only time ruffles belong on a man's shirt is when he's at a wedding or a prom, and that is IT!
