Who says the seventies didn't have style? Check out this groovy ski onesie. Whether it's alpine or Nordic skiing, it didn't matter back in the day. Retro skiers wore oversized, brightly colored dungarees, fluorescent spandex, a whole lot of flannel, and sometimes, nothing at all. "Long's Peak", pictured above, is a Hong Kong-based brand from the 80's that doesn't even exist anymore.
