You've come a long way baby...."What a big beautiful diamond, your fiancé must be really rich"

...or have we? Ad fan Kariann sent us this scan of an ad she found in a 1980's womens fashion magazine. An early example of that "two months salary" rule - yikes. These days DeBeers pushes right hand rings to women, since nobody is getting married anymore. ;)

Full ad with all the horrible copy inside.

"The man in the Hathaway shirt" - Ogilvy, print 1955

Ellerton Jette was the president of Hathaway, and didn't have much of a budget. David Ogilvy asked for complete creative control and the promise that Hathaway shirts would not fire Ogilvy & Mather for as long as the companies existed. On the way to the shoot, David stopped to pick up a novelty eye-patch and the mystery man of intrigue was born.
