Fly Me To The Moon! 1967 Cosak by Dormeuil Mens Suit Advertising Campaign

The competition for mens suiting was fierce throughout the 1960s – an absolute essential piece of every working man’s wardrobe, while also a time that signalled the decline of this timely tradition.

More than ever, ad men and women were looking for new and exciting ways to capture the attention of dapper gentlemen around the world.

This 1967 Ad Campaign for Cosak by classic French textile company Dormeuil displays the fun they had doing just that!

Obviously inspired by James Bond or any of the other number of mens genre media / plus the overall futurist movement of the 60s; the campaign features a well-dressed man in several of the classic suit designs alongside a bombshell blonde, and it appears they are prepping to go to space…or are in space already? Not quite sure all the exact subtleties of the scenario…its all very entertaining and more than that – stylish as ever!

These images appeared in Tailor & Cutter magazine, and were found courtesy of Voices of East Anglia. 

We were drawn to these images while doing some research finding we were lucky enough to have a Dormeuil cloth suit of our own. We recently uploaded it into the {SHOP} so click here to check out the listing, or scroll below for a quick look!

{STYLE WISE} This is no Mirror, a Twin is Here.

Turns out two is always better than one, we’ve recently discovered that theres a serious upside when you get double for the money.  No matter the bargain, or the price, we can find luxury in abundance.

Traveling the world, discovering the new and exotic, there’s so much to fathom, we aren’t sure if we could handle it all all by our lonesome.

 Two Eyes are indeed better than one.

We wouldn’t be bias, and select only the femme fetale who walk on the wild side, oh no no.  We have seen many people, far and wide, far and few between when it comes to quality.  We have found men and women all different but with something the same;  A twin.  Arguably stylish, but always in style, we’ve found double trouble when it comes to cool.  Enjoy this share of photos that are all equally timeless.

 

Sincerely,

Celebrity and Cigarettes

“Stardom can be a gilded slavery. “

-Helen Hayes.

Calling all fans of Hollywood Yesteryear! What have we got here for you, today?!

Talk about bang for your buck! Deep inside every pack of Turf Cigarettes were a pair of these collector trading cards featuring all the studios’ biggest and brightest stars of the day! Many of them are legendary to this day, and have remained icons of style, grace, talent, and ultimate stardom and celebrity. Trading cards like these were a common marketing device since the 1920s paid for by the Studios to stimulate the allure of the “star”.

What a fascinating way to market these names that include heavyweights like Judy Garland, Gene Kelly, Errol Flynn, Fred Astaire, Marlene Dietrich, Gary Cooper, Bing Crosby, Clark Gable, Spencer Tracey, Gregory Peck, Frank Sinatra, Katharine Hepburn, Barbara Stanwyck, Bette Davis, and of course Joan Crawford. These are names we all recognize and revere for the impact they continue to make on pop culture today. They are also a constant reminder to the potential for Hollywood Glamour in us all.

Best of all, the collection of cards include names of stars we may not immediately recognize. Names like Myrna Loy, Dorothy Lamour, Christine Norden, Phyllis CalvertAnton WalbrookRhonda Fleming, and Kieron Moore, may not be immediately familiar, so lest we forget!

Makes you wonder why they don’t do things like that today! It’s the least they could do for the millions of people smoking cigarettes around the world (besides CANCER). I mean, a little novelty never hurt anybody!!!

Not sure how many stars these days would accept being thrown into a pack of cigarettes, but things were much different for the star of yesteryear and the star of today. Despite this, what stars do you think would appear in a pack of cards today?

Special thanks to Immortal Ephemera for sharing this awesome collection! Click for more.

There are pretty crazy things out there these days, but the holiday season of the past was truly a weird and wild place, where you can never expect what you might find leafing through your holiday catalog, or coffee table magazines.

Dozens of inappropriate, odd, and down right bizarre suggestions can be found looking through vintage publications; most of which would never EVER make it to the pages of a magazine or catalog today.

We decided to share just a few of our favorites, and hope you enjoy them too!

“MY COFFEE – IT’S MURDER!” {Vintage 1960s Coffee Ad}

“This Coffee is Criminal!”

What a strange advertising oddity we have here from the 1960s!

A great little PERK-me-up to start off the day.

This pal can’t get a break until his wife asks the good ole’ grocer what coffee could possibly stop her obnoxious husband from abusing her fragile emotions. As always, the good ole’ grocer comes to aid the young couple with his sage wisdom….

Thank the heavens for the Papa Eddie and his crime-solving genius . . .?

I guess? Murder in the First Degree? What are your thoughts?
