Calvin Klein's '80s fashion revolution: 'I will make the underwear ... as I did with the jeans'

14 April 2013 2:00 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Of all the recent decades, one would be hard-pressed to come up with good reasons to revive 1980s fashion.

Neon, for instance, does not look good on anyone -- even when you have a tan and are drunk in a tropical climate. Parachute pants? They are best reserved for skydiving. And shoulder pads on which a cup of coffee can balance don't make wide hips look narrow; they just make everyone resemble linebackers.

Sure, people reminisce about how wonderful past fashions were -- someday people might look wistfully at super low-rise jeans with animal-print thongs peeking out -- but let's not kid ourselves.

The decade, though, is worth reflecting on as National Geographic Channel does over six hours across three consecutive nights in "The '80s: The Decade That Made Us," beginning Sunday, April 14.

It reminds us that men's underwear ads did not always grace Times Square billboards, and it took Calvin Klein to reinvent skivvies. »
