1955 Tighty Whities

“In 1955, Jockey Briefs ran an ad campaign featuring young boys shoving guns into their underwear.  The image on the left is via vintageskivvies.com, who says that it ran in Woman’s Home Companion; the one on the right is from eBay.” Posted By: Alex – Sun Oct 13, 2013

I spotted the ad on the left somewhere recently, thought it had to be a photoshop due to recent events. Nope. It’s legit, and there were no riots at Kenosha Elementary on that day.

[Images and caption found here. The link in the caption is dead, but I left it as I found it.]

  1. I’m just a little young to remember those ads (I’d have been around 2), but they seem awfully familiar. Perhaps they were used again later.

    I’m not sure I ever remember tucking my t-shirt in like that, though.
