Did you ever see anyone wearing something like that, even in the era?

I’ve never heard of or seen anyone wearing anything like that. I doubt they ever did, although I guess someone had to be buying them.... The beautiful people, maybe? :)

Maybe they wore that in the more upscale roller rinks. 😂

Phew! That ad would definitely not fly today.

Kinda related: We brought our old exercise machine down from the attic recently. Since doing exercises for my arms, I've noticed that it's been easier for me to open our Gatorade bottles. Of course my arms still look as scrawny as ever though :lol:
