Bad links[edit]

It's very difficult to find good links, especially those with pictures. Most are written by people who didn't grow up during that time period as they don't know what they are talking about. P L Logan 05:17, 10 July 2006 (UTC)


Not related to Sociology[edit]

Have put this page in category Category:Articles not related to sociology. Please discuss if you agree or disagree that it should be listed in Category:Sociology. If consensus is reached that it does not belong, the category will be removed and possibly replaced with a more appropriate category. JenLouise 02:57, 2 August 2006 (UTC)

Where are the other fashion pages? This should be in whatever category those are. P L Logan 17:35, 5 October 2006 (UTC)

Hailey C. Shannon[edit]

Hailey C. Shannon - as someone who loves wikipedia and tries to protect its integrity, please don't be a wiki-vandal yourself. Please let the rest of us know why you keep removing large chunks of this article. Please respond on this discussion page. I'm guessing you were pretty young back in the 1970s, but if you can back up your edits, then I could support them. I guarantee you that I'm not adding anything fictitious (I wish I could find some photos of those old sleeves, but to no avail, as I don't want to put up photos of me and my friends. Still, if you want to see what I'm talking about, check out the film Dazed and Confused -- it is an excellent period piece, very evocative of the time, though I am from Los ANgeles and the film takes part in Texas, it is still a trip back in time. oh and please don't edit this page, it's good the way it is now :)

Thanks much, Einsteingreco (talk) 22:30, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Travolta Image Shirt[edit]

The shirt being worn by John Travolta in the article image appears to be a (U.S.) football jersey, not a baseball jersey as stated in the caption. 192.249.47.163 (talk) 20:34, 20 August 2010 (UTC)

Global Focus Needed (or more limited title)[edit]

This article is written as if the 1970s were a decade that only occurred in the USA and maybe parts of Europe. Fashion is found in every culture world wide. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.122.65.173 (talk) 05:15, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

I see that there is a template that lists this as a part of the history of western fashion... yet, the title is far more general than that. On further inspection it would seem that a whole set of articles needs to be renamed. 69.122.65.173 (talk) 05:18, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
The problem is that all the fashion centres in the 1970s were locatd in the west such as Paris, London, New York and Milan. The Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact nations didn't exactly have blossoming fashion industries. Tokyo was not yet a fashion centre. Most fashion-concious people around the world in that decade copied western fashion. I agree that the titles of the articles could be renamed but we'd need to get consensus before such a drastic move.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 07:20, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

WP:BRD Discussion[edit]

@Jeanne boleyn: I have just reverted your uncommented (no edit summary) and somewhat massive edit in which you deleted a net difference of over 9000 characters and a dozen references. I'm not an expert on this subject and you may be totally justified but it seems to me that we ought to have a discussion on why you made such a change. For example, just looking at the TOC, you eliminated (or combined) the distinction between women and men and the early 70's. Why? The normal procedure is to improve the article by increments. In general, we don't remove properly-credited citations (although they may be moved), unless there was something wrong with each one. --RoyGoldsmith (talk) 01:47, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

So you think the additions by Artist13 improved the page?!! An editor who had several socks if I'm not mistaken?--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 08:33, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
I wasn't so keen on the edits myself - this page really needs work, but I'm not sure either version is much of an improvement on the other. I also don't think Retrowaste.com - Artist13's favourite site for references - is anywhere near being a reliable source - it appears to basically be someone's personal site, completely self-published, and I said so so on their talk page. Mabalu (talk) 09:15, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
My version restores the glam rock fashions though. Remember it's an article about western fashion not just American. Unfortunately most of the 20th century fashion pages have a strong North American bias.--Jeanne Boleyn (talk) 17:13, 30 September 2014 (UTC)
I'm just saying that Jeanne boleyn's edits didn't have half the references that were in the article before her rewrite. Most references mean that the article's text so referenced should be included, unless there's a good reason why not. So, from 50,000 feet, my guess would be that the former article had more reliable information than the latter. And that's what we all are trying for, isn't it? I don't object to new material (if properly sourced) but does anyone wish to explain why an example or two of material with the appropriate references should be taken out of the article? --RoyGoldsmith (talk) 01:13, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

Hair section is rather light[edit]

According to this, the only hair styles men had were afros or Steve McQueen crew cuts. No mention of '60s holdover long-hairs, the feathered, center-part styles popular with disco dudes and hard rock guys alike, or the slightly-longer-than-short styles worn by everyday business types. Somebody who wikipedias better than I should add these. --Meve Stills (talk) 21:33, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

There could be some design on this page of information to make it easier for readers to understand and absorb the knowledge.

Organization could be more simple and precise. In the article, it said hippie fashion was all gone by mid 70's and I think there shouldn't be such conclusive expression since it does not have accurate supporting evidence.  — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:304:CD8E:780:3DA2:10C2:AC0E:B0D7 (talk) 05:25, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
