Vintage swim ad Friday: This one for 'Ralph Lauren' circa 1980's

This one From Ralph Lauren actually is a totally functional design that would even work as a swim suit. It covers the shoulders from sunburn and is extraordinarily sexy; but then again, all of Ralph Luren's stuff is a classic and never really dates itself.

And that's not all, I went to the GlamourSurf.com website as the watermark denotes and to my surprise, the site actually sells vintage swim suits from years gone by...

The fact that the 80's now constitutes "vintage" makes me want to sob uncontrollably.

I know! :-(

I wish I could go back too.

In P.E. class in the '60s we wore black swim suits. Kids ridiculed them, but they were flattering; not as flattering as the Ralph Lauren pictured (or maybe it's the model).

The boys didn't wear black; they awam nude.

Wait. We're now "vintage"? Oh my. What exactly is the order of these things?
• Vintage
• Classic
• Antique
• ... I don't want to know.

The stages of aging I guess. :)
