Whitney Darrow, Jr. for Arrow Sports Shirts

In 1949, short-sleeved Arrow Sport Shirts sold for $3.65 and long-sleeved shirts sold for $4.25. The advertising art by Whitney Darrow, Jr., promotes the shirts as "sure-fire woman bait."  We can surmise though that if they were really anything of the kind they would have sold for a heck of a lot more.

Note:  Be sure to catch my earlier posts on the art of Whitney Darrow, Jr. including more advertising. I would love to hear of any other ads Whitney Darrow may have created for Arrow.
