SURVEY OF THE DECADES - HUSBANDS
The 1960s Husband
My father was one of these! Any study of the Housewife HAS to look at the men because technically, we need one to become a housewife in the first place! We will see what the boys were up to in the 1960s (hint...if you were born in the 60s, that is your first clue!).
Men's Fashion in the 1960s was characterized by attention-to-detail, perfect fit and elegance and the style is back with a vengeance. Smart, crisp shirts and neat, flawless suits are order of the day.
To achieve the look, there are no better characters to emulate than Don Draper, Roger Sterling and Pete Campbell, the highly ambitious employees of Sterling Copper, a 1960s New York advertising agency in the US television drama series, Mad Men. The series captures a time and profession when men opened doors and pulled out chairs for women, and truly cared about their presentation. They were always impeccably turned out; each man was never seen in anything less than the most immaculate of suits, the crispest of shirts, the smartest of collars, the most slender of ties and the most beautiful of silver cufflinks.
As Jeremy Langmead, editor of Esquire comments, in the 50s and 60s men became body conscious, wearing suits showed off your figure. The advertising industry really blossomed. That is why they looked good. They were selling a dream so they had to look as though they were part of that dream.
Are You Considerate Of Your Husband?
by Jane Sherrod Singer
To quote the famed old song, "A good man is hard to find." Once found, he deserves consideration and pampering. And it is wise to remember the insightful words of Friedrich Nietzsche: "It is not lack of love but lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages."
ANSWERS: All should be NO.
If the 1960s husband was a sports fan, he might have admired Ernie Banks
of the Chicago Cubs...
