BB's Boom Years bunny mag scans

Working my way backwards from 1967... Apologies for creating a new thread separate from Boom Years but I'm planning on putting a bunch of these here...

Interestingly, PB didn't market Ivy style too aggressively... In the early years it didn't have big advertisers, and once it got the reputation that could get big brand names in its pages it always seemed to have more of a Euro slant to it, as that was seen as younger and hipper than Ivy... In that way it's a fascinating document of aggressive marketing of fashions that were a flash in the pan if they ever hit the streets at all... But that's what PB was about, a fantasy of the hippest life imaginable...

Check out a bio of Hef by Steven Watts, really informative and fascinating as to the philosophy of the man and the mag, goes into the way it marketed material goods as a gateway to happiness and fulfillment...

***Sorry if any of these have been posted in the Boom Years or any other thread... Just went through all of Boom Years today and hope I won't post repeats... obviously companies like h.i.s. or Clubman put their ads in many publications so if it does happen it's unintentional!

Anyway, with all that said... I read it for the ads! wink Sorry the scans I have are not as hi-res as might be wished for...

Re: BB's Boom Years bunny mag scans

enjoyed those BB ... from that selection, we had the Interwoven and Burlington Adler socks in some cool colors, including some heathers, Jockey Life, and Van Heusen.

the strangest thing in this group of ads might be that suitcase with the bottle of Old Crow in its easily accessible recessed special compartment .....

Re: BB's Boom Years bunny mag scans

The rest of 1966 on its way throughout the day... I'll be going back to '59... Thanks for the kind words... Most of it is nothing we haven't seen before in terms of style but it's always fun to see new angles...

stan, those ads are hilarious, the people and settings changed but the suitcase was always the central player in those ads... Seeing the sock ads is fun, it's something we haven't had too often here... I've got a Wigwam ad in the queue...

Maybe when these are done I'll post some highlights of the most hideous or crazy ideas... There are a lot of Ivy pics through all the issues but many, many more absolutely insane outfits... Even one from h.i.s. that looks like Seinfeld's puffy shirt... But for now, on with the show!

Re: BB's Boom Years bunny mag scans

A 1966 Career Club ad above asks, “Wild or tame? Get both. At $5.95 you can afford to.” To our eyes, $5.95 is nothing for a shirt with a great plaid and great collar roll like the one above. But how much did it really cost?

To find out, we have to answer two questions. First, how much was $5.95 in 1966? Easy peasy - it was $45.17. Not such a cheap shirt anymore!

The second question is a little more interesting. Today, you can buy a plaid button-down shirt from Land’s End or L.L. Bean from about the same price. But what percentage of income was that in 1966 relative to today? In other words, we know that a $5.95 shirt in 1966 costs $45.17 in 2017 - but is that really more expensive?

Let’s assume that a plausible reader of PB in 1966 was a young professional approaching middle age, in his 30s, comfortable enough to get a taste of the bunny lifestyle but buying the magazine to fulfill a fantasy of having enough to escape the rat race. PB, after all, was an aggressively aspirational magazine.

In 1966, the American Mathematical Society noted that the median income for a professor of mathematics (i.e. holding a doctorate degree) for the 1966-1967 academic year was $7800-$8500. http://www.ams.org/profession/data/annu … laries.pdf

In 1966, the census found that the median income for a family with a male head, married, wife present, was $7265. From the 25-34 age bracket for heads of families, the median income was lower - around $7000. For 35-44, higher - around $7800. https://www2.census.gov/prod2/popscan/p60-051.pdf

This study https://www.bls.gov/ncs/ocs/patc_1966.pdf is even more useful, because of the specific jobs listed. For example. a chief accountant (a supervisor position) in 1966 made anywhere from roughly $10800 to $16800; Level VII attorneys (“defined to include attorneys in charge of legal staffs… usually subordinate to a general counsel”) could make up to $26000.

Remember our $45 Career Club shirt?

In 2017:

- the median annual math professor salary is $94699. http://www1.salary.com/Professor-Mathem … alary.html

- a managing attorney makes a median salary of $191000. http://swz.salary.com/SalaryWizard/Mana … tails.aspx

- a senior accountant makes a median salary of $75000. http://swz.salary.com/SalaryWizard/Acco … tails.aspx

And our median 2017 salary for a (white) household of the same type as above was around $85000.

SO…

- In 1966, our $5.95 shirt was 0.00076% of total income for a low-earning math professor, 0.0007% for high. In 2017, the $45.17 shirt is 0.00048% of total income for a math professor. (Income for this position has risen.)
- In 1966, the shirt was 0.00035% of the total income for the high-earning chief accountant; today, it’s 0.0006%. (Income for this position has dropped. A LOT.)
- In 1966, the attorney was spending 0.00023% of their income on the Career Club shirt, while today they would spend 0.00024%.

Take everything here with a grain of salt. These are all stats from quick searches and don’t take into account many factors, including (for the most part) race, as well as living expenses, taxes, etc. So how feasible purchases would be on an average budget isn’t covered here, even though price relative to total income is.

But, when a 1967 Cricketeer ad says, “Wear an outfit that really looks like an outfit. Cricketeer Bold Traditional Coordinates. A Shetland sportcoat. Hopsack slacks. A hat and a sleeveless sweater with colors and fabrics that match the sportcoat. For about $75.00 (plus $8.95 for the hat) you can afford to wear the whole outfit even if you haven’t really made it big,” they are appealing to a demographic that wants to be upwardly mobile. In 1966, that household income was around $7000 for a 30-year old married man. That $83.95 was 0.012% of the total income. Today, that package is $637.37, pretty steep for someone who hasn’t necessarily “made it big,” and it’s 0.0075% of the total income.

Numbers make my head hurt - but if you want to try this out, and maybe do it in a better way than I have, here are some other prices, for 1967, from the ads above:

$45 sportcoat from Worsted-Tex
$25 slacks from Worsted-Tex
$5 Truval shirt from Career Club
$1.50 Burlington socks
$10 Pedwin loafers

Re: BB's Boom Years bunny mag scans

Cheers mate. Absolutely loving this stuff. The '67 JB ad looks like a bizarre mirror universe image where Morecombe and Wise were in fact a couple of classy handsome studs. So many standouts from '66 but that Madras is a stunner. The girl in the 'What Kind Of man Reads Playboy' ad looks like Barbi Benton who was Hefner's partner for some while during the 60s and 70s. Loving it. Thank you fella.

Another of many "Botany 500" ads... Definitely interesting for marketing a complete Ivy wardrobe... the ability to buy the whole look in one fell swoop...

'Natural Shoulder Trousers', now I haven't heard that expression in a while. I thought it was just a term that had been invented by clothing forum madmen.

the high-top sneakers on the guy in the Grant's Scotch "So the marlin don't bite" ad, what are they?

wondering who currently carries the best version of the Catalina sweater worn by the chimp in "The bulky look is ape" ad?

enjoying the spectacular look on the guy's face in the "Act like you've always worn Tropi-Tex" ad  ....

stan, I looked long and hard at those sneaks... They look almost like some kind of homemade PF Flyer, with that thick outsole...

These ads really have so many great details...

Re: BB's Boom Years bunny mag scans

This is probably one of my favorite ads of any I've seen in PB... along with the Worsted-Tex ads (those jackets always look so crisp) and the yachting Teacher's ad with the yellow slicker and the white shorts, a great look...

I love this one because I actually think the "creasy kid slacks" look so great, especially with that yellow shirt and broken-in loafers, it's a look I'd rock any day over the Neidermeyer on the right... Plus those navy socks are killer...

"At swinging stores."

More from '65 and '64 on the way...

I once found a pair in a second hand clothes shop that were 'natural shoulder trousers' but also pleated. I quickly made my excuses and left.

Incidentally, you can really see the decline in 'cool' of ivy as the 60s went on, in terms of colours, patterns, materials.

Very true... Materials especially, polyester and the like is a huge selling point to eliminate wrinkles...

Funnily enough though, there's much more ad space given to Ivy clothes from '65-'67 than from '64 and earlier... Evidence of the commercialization and demise of the look, I suppose... We'll see what I can dig up from the early 60s and '59, and then I'll swing back to '68 and see what's happening there.

Another aspect that isn't seen here is the sheer amount of horrible, dated style happening in the PB fashion spreads and in many ads, especially h.i.s.... Lots of double-breasted blazers and many, many ascots, incredibly tight trousers, etc... The stuff just doesn't age well... PB itself obviously was much more trend-oriented, trying to sell new products to the readership, while the advertisers for the most part are more practical...

Again I have to thank you for sharing these lovely old adverts mate. Loving them. Looks like KOLCHAK is the model in the KEDS one in his seersucker suit and sneakers. Fantastic stuff.
