    Assuming the jumpsuits are from 1973, that $50 one would be $294.43 today.

  7. Wow, these are astounding…and hilarious! I wonder what ads people will be laughing about from today fifty years from now. Also- the guy in the Stetson hat looked kind of like Sean Connery.

  8. Well, the only suit I’d want is the Kuppenheimer. I think I could make that look good. I’d be dashing in a derby. As long as I don’t have to wear rouge like the fey fellow in the ad!

    WordPress still won’t let me Like a post, except from the Reader, which I never use. Imagine a Like on everything to back whenever.

  10. Man, those ’70s really were a fashion Dark Age! That pink number is amazing! And the Van Heusen ad people were sort of… edgy. Interesting that the word “dude” appeared with sort of a different nuance than at present.

  11. I want to say something clever about these crazy ads, but I think I broke my brain looking at them.

  12. I agree about the spanking. I almost flinched when I saw that. Our son was always trying to get my husband to throw out his old wide ties. The men’s dress clothes from the 1930s remind me of my brother who was much older than me. I could well believe he worked in a men’s clothing store. He looked like a movie star. 😀 — Suzanne

    • Many, many years ago, Ann Landers got a letter from a guy who claimed that spanking was the only way to deal with uppity wives. He talked about the failure of his first two marriages, blaming it all on the wives (of course), then said that he had saved his current marriage by spanking his wife whenever she got out of line. He concluded by saying, “If more men spanked their wives, there would be fewer divorces.” Ann Landers replied, “If more men spanked their wives, there would be fewer men.” 🙂

  13. I totally agree. I told my husband if he ever struck me I’d wait until he was asleep and then come after him. He never touched me in anger. He would just yell. It bothered my dad if my mother even stopped talking to him when she was angry. 😀 — Suzanne
