Throw Back Prep Thursdays J.Press 1959 Sweaters

Prep throwback Thursday is brought to you by J.Press. This might be one of my favorite advertisements I have posted so far. The advertisements come from the 1959 catalog, featuring quintessential Ivy League items normal in any preppy household in 1959. The 1959 catalog had classic sweaters like, "The Shaggy Dog, Shetland Sweaters, and the Danish Irish fisherman" for men and women. I wonder why J.Press no longer sells their timeless sweaters to the female audience, which I'm sure would be a hit. I wished I had a time machine to relive this time and be able to buy these sweaters at those prices.
