Fashion clichés from the 1930s - 50s.

Trunks - Boxers, weightlifters, other "strong men".

Tights - Acrobats, dancers, and circus aerialists.  High wire and trapeze acts.

Cape - Many athletic performers, including the above mentioned circus acts and matadors.  Also vampires, stage magicians, and opera aficionados.

Short skirt and sweater - Figure skater, cheerleader.

The superman in short skirt and sweater didn't sell that well...

I thought Supes was a wish-fulfillment for a couple of New York jewish kids (I forget the borough) who got picked on a lot.  IIRC his costume was inspired by circus acrobats.

They were from Cleveland, originally.
