Old Polo catalog scans

These images were scanned and posted by a user named jamgood on the Ask Andy forums a little over two years ago. They are from a couple of Polo catalogs from 1977, 1980 and 1981. I've had these images saved on my hard drive for a while, but I figured I would share them since there are some great Fall looks.

(OK, to be honest, the fur coat is a bit much, even for me, but it is still a great picture)

Props to RL. Where else but American can a man make a fortune by "branding" a socioeconomic class?

Excellent toggle coat. Reminds me to wear mine more this coming winter. Excellent scans. Cheers, HTJ

You gotta give old Ralph some major points for consistency of concept. Change the haircuts and you'd hardly know these were old shots.

Amazing. Photos three and five (from top down) are of none other than Liam McNamara: professional surfer and big wave hell-man. Great post and great find for a fellow surfer.
