Here’s a Patently Bizarre Tank Suit Ad from 1970

Man Modeling Tank Suit
November 1, 1970 — © Condé Nast Archive/Corbis

WHAT WE DO KNOW:

• The Title: “Man Modeling Tank Suit” • The Photographer: Mark Patiky, of “Miles Davis Lounging on Bed of Skins with Unidentified Female” fame. • The Corbis Description: “A male model lounges on a beach in front of a jeep and a police officer wears a pair of aviator sunglasses, striped tank-suit with a high scoop neck made of ribbed acrylic fiber, by Drummond.”

WHAT WE DON’T KNOW:

• What a tank suit is. • Why there is no mention in the Corbis description of a woman soft-shoeing down the beach in an evening gown. • Whether this is a real police officer, since the only town he looks to be serving and protecting is Sodomyville.
