Isn't he dreamy? And he's just "becoming a man."
Published in 1951, this guide for young men is illustrated with Norman Rockwell-esque illustrations and oddly staged photos.
Here's our soon-to-be-man -- serious, studious and smartly dressed. No wonder the gals behind him are giving him the once over!
|Here's a different proto-man, post-graduation. Even his sister and grandmother think he's dreamy.|
The book offers plenty of dating advice. This young man has already won over his date and her mother.
In a back-to-back comparison, there's no contest. The drapes win!
Another milestone in a young man's life -- made complete by grinning parents.
But it's not all sunshine and smiles. Becoming a man means learning tough truths...from books...And creepy neighbors.
But in the end, it all comes down to this: Real men wear plaid..and stripes.
