Hunka Hunka Burt Reynolds & James Caan in Playboy 1972 - Playboy Series part 1

I was at the flea this weekend and happened on a bunch of old playboy magazines from the 60's & 70's. I started flipping through them thinking there must be great ads and swimwear to. I wasn't wrong. I've been having fun looking at these and taking some quick images & adding them to my Instagram feed. But, I figured you might enjoy some of what I'm enjoying. So here we go into the land of fashion, illustration, advertising and might I say photography from the 60s & 70s as seen in Playboy Magazine.

First up, July 1972. Cover photography by Robert Harmon. This one is on my nightstand now so I can read the articles. This one especially.

Subtitle: A Revealing History of Lingerie.

You can click on the images to enlarge for the detail. 

Flipping through I come across a spread entitled "So it's a bracelet, what's it to ya?" featuring none other than Mr. Burt Reynolds and Mr. James Caan. This image of James is from his Godfather time frame. While Burt had been starring in Deliverance. That's a Gucci necklace Burt has on, just $510. at the time.

And just as kismet would have it, I came across this playboy linoleum cut in my 'stuff'. You know something is going to come out of all of this.

And the one in the top right corner?

18kt Cartier my dear. $185. Oh the man jewelry!

I plan to start posting at least one or two images or maybe just have some fun sharing with you so stay tuned!
