Here’s my card…

Let’s face it, the best thing about working for a large organisation is having a business card. No act is more self satisfyingly wonderful than taking out one’s brass, silver, leather, stainless steel, aluminium (delete as applicable) business card case, extracting a card and saying, ‘here’s my card.’ However, like most things, modern business cards are, on the whole, totally uninspiring. Most of them are white, minimalist affairs, some of which only have the person’s name and company. This was not always the case. Below are a few men’s clothing related business cards I’ve managed to find on the internets from long ago. They are surprisingly difficult to find, however, so if anyone knows of some hidden stash somewhere then please let me know. Millions of pounds (…worth of gratitude) will be dispensed to anyone who can supply a Montague Burton business card!

    Do you dispense Andrews and Pygott business cards? It would be wise for me to have one to hand for those times when the internet has crashed and I need advice on brimping my thruckle-fold.
