PHOTOS: Vintage Jim Palmer Jockey Campaign


PHOTOS:  Every now and again, we get a kick out of looking at how much the look of underwear model’s has changed throughout the years. One look at this campaign from veteran baseball player, Jim Palmer, demonstrates this perfectly. First off, can we talk about the underwear? Though the styles may seem a bit dated, you can still find similar options available from Jockey. Also, a lot of the colors and prints are still worn today. Secondly, it’s kind of hard to compare Palmer to the likes of an Andrew Christian model. For starters, he is one hairy fellow; and, though fit, his body also looks attainable. Take a walk down memory lane with the photos below.

      Such a natural body, and with hair!! If he were doing this ad campaign today, he’d be waxed to within an inch of his life before they’d let him in front of a camera.

      @jimbryant: And then airbrushed to look 20 years younger as beauty with age is always ignored these days.

      @jimbryant and DarkZephyr : the “six pack” abdominals are, for gays, like women’s big breasts are for straight guys.

      Man, I couldn’t even begin to count the times in 8th grade I spanked up my spunk while holding up Jim Palmer’s undies ads with one hand. That hot handsome stud was packing a seriously full basket in those briefs.

      Even David Letterman did a commentary on the photos, holding one up during a monologue and saying something to the effect that Palmer was clearly stuffing packing peanuts in his drawers.–Bet not, Dave! Those images definitely inspired my visions of JP sprawled on my bed with me going to town on those babies… ahh yes, still a muscle fiend horndog here…

      I’ll take one order of Jim P in the creamy beige bikini briefs, to go please. :D

      I read somewhere the models issues of the underwear were extra dense to protect the model’s ‘privacy,’ but even I believe that’s only Palmer in them.
      And yes, today, the hair would all be waxed off, and doubtlessly Palmer, like Beckham, would be defaced all over with permanent ink.

      I prefer vintage Palmer to many of today’s twinks

      Palmer gave me plenty bathtime pleasures back in the 70′s :) http://getoffmydress.blogspot.com/2013/11/awww-precious.html

      I remember when I was in 3rd or 4th grade, we had a field trip and another boy from class brought a Sports Illustrated. One of the ads was for underwear (not sure if it was Palmer and the Jockey’s) but the guy was standing there in those briefs. They were yellow, and he had a VERY obvious bulge. It didn’t look like the usual “pointing down” bulge, where you might be able to tell if they were cut or uncut. This guy looked like he put a pencil sticking straight OUT! He was TENTING! We were laughing so hard at that. (Now, I wish I could find that ad today! lol If anyone has that old ad somewhere, please share) I am surprised that not all the guys in my class didn’t become gay from that! It helped make up my mind later in life.

      What’s really disgusting is that the bastards made poor Jim look like he had no genitals at all! Now that’s indecent!!!

      I’ll take one in the Micro Three Briefs. This was before the age of airbrushed, photoshopped, gym-buffed, aerobicised, I’m-Queeny-Tony-Horton-of-P90X-Let-Me-Scream -At-You, synthetic hunks. Jim Palmer was physically, naturally, fit and beautiful from head to toe.
