It's pretty interesting to see how men's fashion has evolved over the years (via the cover library Gentleman's Quarterly). They didn't really start putting women on the covers until the late 90s. And head shots were big in the 80s (along with speedos). Sammie Davis Jr seems to be the first African American to make the cover.
But on a personally note...the bathing suit overalls of the 70s, need to make a comeback.
