When our grandpas wore skivvies VS the speedos/bathing trunks that would somehow come to play from the 50s-00s, I was wondering of the material they used back then...I mean, we might sometimes see Clark Gable, Franchot Tone, etc. sporting those skivvies...I was just wondering what type of garments were they made of? I know the speedos/bathing trunks changed their material, but I was curious as to what material was worn for bathing suits of the olden times when I our grandparents were children? Do you think the change now compare to our granparents' era was a good change for sure? Discuss.
