I couldn’t resist featuring this 1956 ad for Blue Bell clothing. It came from a 1/4 page ad published in the March 1956 edition of Glamour magazine. The ad appeared towards the back of the magazine. Most of the pages before it featured high-fashion looks for the mid-century style conscious. Little did they know that it would be these $1.98 jeans that would capture the hearts of the 21st century style conscious 65+ years later. In fact, dated jeans like these are a hot treasure. A quick Google search revealed a pair of mid-century Blue Bell Wrangler size 8 children’s jeans listed for $145.00. Yee Haw!
