Du Pont ~ Menswear Adverts [1960-1961] Dacron/Orlon

“The luxury of Orlon.”

These ads for men’s trousers made from Du Pont Dacron” polyester and “Orlon” acrylic fibre date from 1960-61. The long half page ads featured a relaxed pair of men’s legs at various leisure venues.

The trousers shown in the ads were tailored by various companies using fabrics made from Du Pont fibres, including Asher, Paxton, Hickok, Hochenberg & Gelb, Glen Oaks, Gulf Stream, Jefferson, and Ratner.


I’ve also found three full page suit ads with the same catchline as above.


“The flawless look for fall.”


“For the smartest summer of your life.”
