Stars ‘n Stripes Girdle

Introduced in 1965 by the Treo Company, and promptly withdrawn from the market on account of complaints by the Daughters of the American Revolution.

In a letter to the Treo Company, Inc., a ranking DAR official called the girdle... a "shocking caricature" of the American flag.
"Patriotism should be encouraged by proper respect to the Stars and Stripes, the symbol of this great country and the many opportunities enjoyed here," Mrs. W. Carl Crittenden, national chairman of the DAR's Flag of the United States of America Committee, wrote.
"I believe that all patriotic citizens will agree with me that it is deplorable to downgrade our flag in this fashion."

Atomic Protection Fashion

"how the housewife of the future might do her shopping during danger of atomic attack. The ensemble consists of a hood and goggles for protection against atomic flashes, a cloak and a gas mask to protect the lungs from atomic dust."

Because not even the threat of nuclear war is going to stop the weekly shop!
