PHOTOS: Real Vintage Men In Their Undies Put David Beckham And Others To Shame

Tongues have been wagging ever since Tommy Hilfiger called David Beckham the “underwear model of the century” last week. Some people agreed with the fashion giant, but many did not. Sure, David Beckham is great. But there have been greater.

We already compiled a list of underwear models over the decades who we think the football star could take a few pointers from. Now, we’ve scoured the internet for photos of REAL men from decades past showing off their skivvies in snapshots and home photo shoots.

Scroll down to see these scantily-clad men in all their masculine realness.

    who s this one?anyone know his name?

  • DK

    Takeaway: guys have always been hot. I still wish someone would raise Montgomery Clift from the dead so I could seduce him *sigh*

  • Will L

    Ah, yes. Back before us Americans got so overweight.

    #7 please, and hurry.

    @bhar48069: I estimate he’s in his mid-20s in this picture, so we’ll be conservative and say 20. Probably shot in the 50s-60s, and playing it safe (and for ease of math), let’s say 1964. That makes him 70-ish. Don’t be so impatient, he’s hurrying as fast as possible.

    Cuteness deluxe. Makes me nostalgic for a time I never lived through.

  • dvlaries

    With two modest exceptions, totally inkless and yet still sexy. So it is possible, huh?

  • JennyFromdabloc

    HOT photos! No ink, no ‘roids, natural hair, pure sexiness. #7 looks like Russell Tovey.

  • twoguysbrooklyn

    Love the onezies…

  • babybabybaby

    HOT STUFF…..

  • Alton

    No hideous tattoos mean they’ve already got a leg up on Beckham.


    @DK: I have first dibs on Mr. Clift, Bub. *Swoon*


    Great pics and Yes, indeed, very sexy. I have old photos of my late Dad, taken in about the same era as these (WWII-ish), and now I see what all the fuss was about when nearly every older woman (and probably a few men) thought he was the hottest shit in town. He would be an amazing 88(!) years old now. Unbelievable. I would be curious to know how many of these fellas are still alive, what they look like now, and how they remember these pics and their younger selves… ;)

    …I must be honest and say that David Beckham is so overestimated

    Pic #5 (four guys standing by a fence) reminds me of the animated series King of the Hill.
