Can you guess what year these vintage clothing and shoe ads came out?

If you saw these ads in the year they were created, would you buy the product?

Whenever you feel like going down memory lane, vintage ads are one of the best ways to go. These ads prove how things constantly change to appeal to what's popular at the moment and show the difference in creativity between each year and decade.

Do you remember reading a newspaper, seeing an ad for one-size-fits-all hats, or seeing an advertisement for slippers and adding it to your Christmas list?

No matter how much they change over time, ads still have the same goal: to gain sales. Can you guess what year these vintage clothing and shoe ads came out?

  1. What year did this vintage pajama ad come out?

3 for 10.
Most of these ads are too dated and even at the time were only of vague interest to anyone,
much less now. It's not like they had a ad for the classic denim Gold Rush jeans from
Levi Strauss that were landmarks, so that the reader might deduce from what year
they came from. Or the classic post war bikini, named after the atoll that had a atomic
bomb dropped on it.
On that basis I think this quiz was poorly done.
The ads chosen were banal, question 6 the worst, of interest to nobody.

5/10 I normally love these vintage ad quizzes but some of this stuff was just too old.

5/10…Pretty darn good 😎 (for guessing)…

3/10
The only one I feel bad about missing was #5. I simply misread it and thought 1942 was the second choice. Pretty obvious that wasn't a style from 1842. [Le oops!]

I enjoy these quizzes just to look back at previous eras. Quite the span of years on this one.
For #6 " For Cash Only! " - What were the other options?
#7- Looks like a folded over tablecloth pattern.
#9- Wow that's quite the collar in the neck area.
#10- Was it stylish to sit around in long johns,? I hope the underwear was flame- retardant as he seems to be smoking a pipe. " Underwear that always fits? So I guess half-way between the knee and ankle must be considered a perfect fit?
