A few years back, I acquired this vintage advertisement for Stetson Hats. Like much advertising for commercial products during the second World War, it had the added benefit of promoting a certain aspect of the war effort–in this case the imperative to avoid divulging potentially damaging military secrets.
It’s a bit of clever promotion. But it’s also an excellent example of design. One day soon, I’m going to have it framed, along with a few other vintage Stetson advertisements I have.
