Although the term "mancave" may be a modern invention, the idea of a masculine-decorated, home electronic filled room isn't a new one. In fact, we think its heydays were several decades ago, when men could use the promise of "the highest fidelity" in their shag-filled entertainment room as a viable come-on. Doesn't quite have the same ring to it now: "Hey, wanna shuffle my iPod?".

Check out this collection of retro rooms from a collection put together by The Selvidge Yard, who defines the mancave as "a dark, personal, intimate womb", perhaps supporting the opinion that mancaves are possibly the realm of boys who never became men. Our favourite photo of the bunch is the projected movie in bed scene. Rawr~!
