A week ago, it was old RadioShack catalogs. Today, I bring you a J.C. Penney catalog from 1977. The blogger who blogged it might have oversold it as “the funniest thing you will ever see,” but it’s still pretty entertaining–especially the “colorful stretch terry coordinates” and the “all-purpose jumpsuit.”
Update: Apparently there’s been some confusion, as several commenters have pointed out. The whole “1977 J.C. Penney catalog on the Internet” is not a new development. I never meant to imply it was. Gizmodo ran it a couple of years ago. And J.C. Penney ran it way back … in 1977. I saw it today and decided to share. Apologies to all whom I’ve offended.
