Modern Man Part Two - The Psychedelic Hippie

Following on from yesterdays post, here is the second catalogue. Now this has got to be from the second half of 1967, the summer of love had a huge impact on mens and women's fashion and judging from the content here - the mail order fashion world was no exception! Hope you enjoy these too!

Some good collars here, and a rather nice ruffle too.

The Kaftan - the most exciting newcomer on the fashion scene!


Modern Man Psych 7

Great Nehru style jacket, don't forget your hippie bells too.


Modern Man Psych 10

More exotic eastern influenced fashion, plus a jolly sensible sweater.


Modern Man Envelope

Unused envelope - check my flickr for the order forms too!

I don't know what I love most, the illustrations or the crazy descriptions. A High-Collared gay-coloured eye-sore! Brilliant advertising. xxx

These are amazing! Old catalogs are always a source of inspiration for my fashion choices/design choices. Thanks for posting! And I have totally be channeling the summer of love in my clothing choices lately (especially since I live two blocks from Haight and Ashbury in SF) xoxo
