    I wasn’t alive then: does anyone know which ad she is talking about?

    @Nabuquduriuzhur

    I vaguely remember magazine ads for a brand of men’s shirts that had a guy with an eye patch. He didn’t look like a ruffian, but rather sophisticated. Someone else can fill in the details.

    Fortunately kids are always extremely kind if you’re different.

    I remember the ads too. I believe the brand was “Hathaway shirts”.

    There was a kid in my old school that had a patch on one eye.

    That’s right, “The Man in the Hathaway Shirt.”
    (“The Most Interesting Man in the World” is a spoof on that theme.)

    I remember that kids at school were usually a bit envious of kids who were a bit different.

    I had to wear a patch once, but I was an adult, and it was because I had eczema on my eyelid. The patch went on the rashy eye so that the other eye wouldn’t want to close to “match”. It was extremely awkward, and I got more comments at work that I probably would have gotten if I were in school!

    The whole eye patch for lazy eye thing did not work.

    I’ve been teaching a course in 1950s culture, and we work a lot with old issues of Life magazine. Those Hathaway ads were a regular feature!

    Indeed, the Hathaway man was an early version of the “Most Interesting Man in the World.”
