The 1970s had a variety of men’s shirt styles to wear. Divided into two main groups, there were button down shirts and knit shirts. Button down shirts came with huge collars in solid colors, wild earth-tone patterns, stripes, and paisley. The disco shirt was extra flashy, with a silky high-shine finish.
Meanwhile the knit shirt could be a two tone polo shirt, striped golfer’s polo, rugby stripe retro-T-shirt, long-sleeved knit shirt, or mock and turtleneck shirt. These retro sweater shirts are back in style today.
There were 1970s men’s shirts for every mod, hippie, peacock, soul man, urban cowboy, disco dancer and every style in between. Check out this photo gallery and shop for 70s men’s shirts below (authentic vintage) or by clicking here for new 70s shirts.
