What's Phisticated Then? (1967)

What's Phisticated Then?


What's phisticated then? It's good manners in a vodka. Smirnoff is the cleanest, discreetest, the strong silent vodka. Leaves you clear-headed. Take the general's advice and order it. Not ''vodka'' Len, ''Smirnoff''.

Sweet Jane blog: I Was Lord Kitchener's Valet (1967)


Image scanned by Sweet Jane from The Daily Telegraph Magazine December 8th 1967. View some of my previous vintage Smirnoff advert posts When Taurus Met Virgo in the clear World of Smirnoff (1969)  On a quiet afternoon, when the world stands still (1970). You'll find The Booze Book (1967) published by Determined Productions Inc. and illustrated by John Astrop & Eric Hill. And the trend for wearing military jackets from I Was Lord Kitchener's Valet Portobello Road & also Beginning of the Rainbow (1968). The shop is also included in the excellent Gear Guide (1967). Watch Your Boutique Needs You! filmed inside "I Was Lord Kitchener's Valet" on London's Portobello Road. And finally, some colour film footage of the military uniform craze from I Was Lord Kitchener's Valet, plus an interview with Robert Orbach and one of the most famous exponents of the look.


  1. Is that Julie Driscoll? Er, the one in the middle, I mean…

    1. I can see what you mean Caspar, she definitely has a similar look, the models weren't credited by name in the magazine so I can't say for sure, but I don't think it's her..someone else reckons that the bloke on the left could be Willie Rushton..he does bears some resemblance.
