Yesterday we saw the best and the worst of two International Male catalogs from the summer of 1986, but there's one more flea market find I had to share with you guys: The 1986 Holiday catalog. Can't you tell from the tuxedo shirt and saxophone on the cover that untold treasures lie inside? Fringed leather jackets! Ski jeans! Kim Cattrall! Half-naked underaged indigenous-looking boys in loincloths. Wait, what??? All this and more, after the jump.

Yeah, that's right. Uptown. Where purple and pink are hot. Where a satin big shirt is cool. Where drugs are necessary.

Note the utter lack of irony in that man's face as he models that Vaquero Jacket. Fringe is his friend.

There's nothing like an intense workout! Especially when it involves wearing shimmering spandex and getting a grip on another dude. Feel the burn!

Several things.

1. The Vaquero jacket model looks like the Spirit Guide that came to me at the end of my vision quest.

2. If I lived in the 80's, I would have had to do so many drugs to cope with the clothing.

3. I wonder if he is free ballin under the flight suit.

4. It certainly looks like Kim Cattrall

5. Those shorts are so short that men in 1986 could have sex without even unbuttoning their pants, just through the bottoms of their shorts legs.

6. Body tech, International Male, 1986- the inspiration for American Apparel's summer 2008 women's collection.
