Summer mean its bathing suit time again and without a doubt, nobody ever illustrated the ideal beach wear body like Pete Hawley did for Jantzen in the '40s and '50s.
Let's take a closer look, shall we?
I presented a bunch of Pete Hawley's Jantzen ads when I wrote about his career a couple of years ago.... but here are a few more from the early '50s that I've managed to dig up since then.
*Whew!* Is it just me or is it getting hot in here? One last piece for your viewing pleasure. I found this scan of what looks like an unsigned Pete Hawley original online this morning. No idea what ad this came from, but it must be yet another gorgeous Jantzen ad - very likely also from the early '50s.
