Madison Avenue Monday: Jammed Zippers and Split Seams

A really cute ad for Talon brand zippers and thread.

Though I do think the ad man or woman slipped a bit with the props the folks hold in the background.  One gentleman holds a paper where the headline reads "Give up or be slaughtered."  Scary!

From Singer Sewing Fashions, Summer '69


  1. Guess that's why films and tv tend to use a standard prop newspaper now. Ever noticed this paper with the woman's head. Kinda funny to see how prevalent that newspaper is:

    1. Oh that is so interesting! I had no idea that the same newspaper prop is used over and over. Now I'm going to watch for that newspaper in films.

  2. Hahaha. I hate when that happens. The newspaper and the zipper bursting. But how on earth did that skinny model break a zipper? ;)

  3. That is a fun ad for sure, though I totally agree with you about the newspaper headline. How did someone at the ad agency not catch that? (Unless, and this is a tad scary, it was included on purpose.)

    Thank you very much for your wonderfully sweet comment on my vintage outfit post this week. I miss living near Forever 21 (there isn't one around for several hours), but thankfully they do have an online shop here in Canada, too, which includes a decent portion of their stock, so I can still get my Forever 21 fix occasionally :)

    Wishing you a peacefully gorgeous Thursday, dear friend,
