Classic Guls

These are my two favourite old Gul suits - the one on the left from the late 70s, and the orange one from the mid -late 80s. Very different suits - from the simpicity of the early one to the complex design and materials used in the almost over engineered later one.
The orange fits me perfectly and is pretty cool with its orange fabric, lots of smooth skin black neoprene, super hero leg stripes and ribbed padding - a cross between star wars and slalom ski suits. Would I wear it ? possibly. Would I get laughed at ? probably.
