Vintage Ah Men Catalog—Someone recently posted a lot of these oh-so-'70s catalogs, and they are nothing short of a site to behold. Someone call Simon Doonan immediately.
I grew up on great fashion magazines. But now, when I go to the newsstand in search of something to inspire me, it's sadly slim pickins' (I know you know what I mean). If only some of today's mags and catalogs would take a cue from these vintage paper gems.
4. Vintage Harper's Bazaar—Can you even imagine a time when publishers we're cool with a cover like this? No Angelina, no numbers, no hysterical cover lines. Just the spareness of this cover makes me want to look inside.
8. Vintage Sears Catalog—A lovely person just gave me an archive of old Sears catalogs from the 20s through the 60s. I am not kidding, much of the stuff for sale could be on the floor at Opening Ceremony today.
