Kevin, I'm sure 'Mork from Ork' got his fashions from seeing you. Bobby, as I post up this photo, I challenge you for 'best ass and legs' honors. Whillens harness and Vibram lug sole shoes. Circa 1977.
And once I got some EB's, Chouinard double layer canvass pants, a bandana and small stuff sac used for a chalk bag, well I looked so much better, eh?

Hey Bobby, my 60's big hair stuck around through most of the 80's before I figured out it was time to go. At least the tighty gym class shorts and calf length socks were tossed long before that. And being a poor white boy, I'd call my hair a 'natural' instead of a 'fro, , 'bro'. Woodchuck ATC

Don't EVEN get me started with my lycra phase. Dangerous colors. Maybe a new post about your 'worst look' would be better than your first photo. Woodchuck ATC

Natanya needs to work on her gear rack management I believe.
Jimbo, those pants are fabulous. Find them, cherish them.

There goes me saying a climbing harness is never sexy. Let the 70s porn music take us to the next post.
