Catalina 1956 - Oh those Bothersome Air Bubbles

Both of these Catalina ads for men are from 1956. I kind of love the caption: The man Wears Catalina. And the Double Header part was for reversible swim trunks. "Inspired by Janus the immortal two faced god, our new "Double Header" swim trunks are doubly good looking... give your beach wardrobe twice it's versatility. You can wear them inside out or outside in... they give you two smart swim trunks for the price of one. Double Header provides twice the pleasure of ordinary swim trunks."

And how about the 'Cuban Cut". The copy reads "Next best thing to wearing nothing at all. These flexible skin tight diver designs cling to you like a coat of tan...leave no room for bothersome air bubbles...leave you with complete freedom of motion."

Bothersome air bubbles... ha! That's going to be playing with my head all day.
