1922 Ad Rockinchair Men Underwear Circus Tent Elephant - ORIGINAL MIX6


This is an original 1922 black and white print ad for Rockinchair Athletic Underwear for men, boys, and women, from Henderson & Ervin, 331 Fourth Avenue, New York City. For a Rockinchair Union Suit one doesn't simply ask for a "38" but for a 38 Regular; 38 Short Stout; 38 Slim Jim; or a 48 Big Bill, depending one's trunk and girth! The ad has a great illustration of men of varying girth in Rockinchair underwear at the circus. Unusual!
