Good Buys for Good Guys

For Christmas for the guys, today we continue our 12 days of Christmas posts with a look at 1949 gift giving for the men in your life. Keep in mind the prices reflected are those from 1949. The two page spread ad was put out by Talon, the quality zipper.

They're chosen for news, for style, for the wonderful way they take care of every man on your list - without taking every dollar you own. Quality?
