Dressin' Drag

These photos, by Mike Manson, offer up a glimpse into the style surrounding drag culture in the late 60s. Sure, Mike was probably trying focus in and capture the lines and glitter paint of the cars, but lucky for us he got some onlookers and crew in the frame as well. Look close and catch the loafers with no socks, striped t-shirts, canvas shoes, tucked graphic-tees, chinos hovering the perfect height from the ground and even some sock-less saddles. Yeah, and those cars ain't all bad either. I'd take that fastback lining up, as-is, blower and all.
