By now, you've probably heard about Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown's nude spread in June 1982's Cosmo, but what did the former model wear when clothed? Pink leather shorts, it seems.
Brown explained (via Vanity Fair):
"If I wore these now I'd get shot. But it was the '80s. Pastels were in. It was all pastel-y." The shorts went with his tan at the time and a pair of white shoes that he owned, so he gave them a whirl. "Gail comes out and she's like, 'Those are pink shorts.' I said: 'Yeah, you like them? They're great. Comfortable. Feel this leather."' With this last phrase, he slowly stroked the side of one of his thighs, apparently miming the gesture he made in front of her.
