Leisure suits came into fashion around the mid-seventies and didn't make it past 1979. I never wore a leisure suit - nor did I ever want to. Leisure suits were for disco dancing fools, sleazy lounge lizards, and Baptist preachers. I never saw the attraction. Leisure attire to me back then was a pair of faded blue jeans and a t-shirt. If I wanted to make it into a leisure suit - I'd simply slip on my corduroy jacket. It was comfortable and I didn't have to look like a Ken doll.
I will admit that I did have some shirts with big collars. Remember the big collars of the seventies? Heck - you could hang glide wearing those shirts.
