DuPont introduced polyester in 1950. By the 1970s, the fabric’s use had expanded so rapidly that it held the connotation of cheapness associated with leisure suits. So what I’m saying is: Hawkeye’s gaudy taste is amusingly canon to the character.

Dialogue says halter tops, panel shows crop tops. Bullpen: Editor Archie Goodwin, Writer Jim Shooter, Penciller George Perez.
