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''.

Image scanned by Sweet Jane from The Daily Telegraph Magazine December 8th 1967. View some of my previous vintage Smirnoff advert posts here and also here. You'll find The Booze Book illustrated by John Astrop & Eric Hill 1967 here, The trend for wearing military jackets via I Was Lord Kitchener's Valet here & also here. It's also included in the excellent Gear Guide 1967 here. Your Boutique Needs You! inside London's Portobello Road "Lord Kitchener's Valet" here. And finally, colour film footage of the craze & shop here  plus an interview with Robert Orbach and one of the most famous exponents of the look here.


  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.
