    These ads are great for reference or to reflect on advertising of the past. Most fashion illustrations after the early 50's, I could not care less about. I love the summer catalogs.

    Is this supposed to be modeled after Dana Andrews? I know of the Bing Crosby Stetson ad.

    EDIT: Welp, couldn't make out the print until now. It is Andrews. What other celebs got featured in these old Stetson ads?
     
  9. This very ad is posted earlier in the thread (page 6) along with many others....Lot's of celebrities and others......
    Best,
    M
    Ps we are limiting the posts of this thread to items we actually own rather than "internet finds" or Ebay listings.......

    I apologize. I just came across the Andrews ad here and your warning of keeping it hard-copy only. Keep showing us these originals!

  11. A bit late for this thread really......but it does give some interesting historical perspective.....from a 1964 Miller-Stockman. That Frontiersman has one heck of an interesting crease.....
    And what the hell did they do to the Longhorn?!?!?!?
    The world of hats is ever changing......

  12. 1949 Miller-Stockman.....note the number of black hats (and I do not mean Union volunteers from Wisconsin). Apparently you needed a brown and/or a black hat in 49......

    Cool Mark! The Whippet has a Bob like upturn to a rather narrow brim. Interesting. Can't wait.

  17. NEW Information on the dating....Just saw a couple of the postcards from this very set....they were used so included a postmark...1914. So they date 1914 or earlier.......

  18. Early 30's (?) advertising blotter. Really nice version of "the last drop" illustration!

    I recently obtained a mid 1950s Playboy, so I then went out and found a nice condition advert to frame and hang in the house ... that's it down between the front and garage doors.
