Walter Kundzicz operated Take One Studio in 1959-60 when he took these excellent pictures of 
Dick Lee.  You know him better as the operator of Champion Studio which followed.

  1. It looks as if Mr Lee is wearing a precursor of the later ubiquitous and more successful Jockey Skants sports brief. As I have mentioned before, for all the overt conformity, the 1950s was a decade of much covert experimentation in men's underwear - much of it, even by our standards today, quite daring and risqué. It was just a question of which manufacturer captured the Zeitgeist with the right design.

    1. Well, those proto-skants do show off the goods quite nicely.

  2. Now they all wear boardshorts. Whatever happened to speedos and dolphin shorts?

    1. Really. They're all long and baggy these days.

    2. Don't knock shorts. If they don't have liners (which boardies don't) things can get interesting.

      I'll always remember when I was 10, albeit an early puberty, seeing this boy, about 15 or 16, at the hotel pool. In his light green, well, not boardies, this was 1993, but you could see everything.

      Now, it was a hotel pool, so I had to wear my trunks. (At home I preferred to wear nothing in our pond.) But the mesh and my arousal being underwater helped a bunch.
