Howard makes clothes for men who make babies

Howard was a New York clothes store for men. The theme of their 1966 ad campaign was that they made clothes for virile men.

The ad claiming that they made clothes "for men who make babies" was refused by every New York paper except the Times, which ran it once, and then never again, due to a complaint from the "Improvement of Advertising Content Committee".

I never realized that Ajax's white knight was supposed to make housewives lust for detergent.
