When I was younger I would occasionally wear vintage polyester shirts to go out dancing in.
I enjoyed the belle epoque, art nouveau and art deco designs of the shirts.
But, alas they didn't breathe and would make me extremely hot.
So, after awhile I learned that they probably weren't the best thing to wear when dancing.
Which is ironic because hundreds of thousands of people wore them to discos in the 70's!
The belle epoque polyester shirt pictured above can be purchased over at Dress That Man.com (they seem to have the market cornered on polyester disco shirts, with a total of 32 pages of shirts to choose from !)
