He Didn’t Get The Job – Gillette Ad From 1932

He didn’t get the job, and she doesn’t have the heart to tell him that the Emmett Kelly look is “So last year.” From True Detectives Magazine, 1932.

“I didn’t get the job”

He’d counted on landing the job— but he missed out. Again he’ll have to “stall” the landlord, the grocer and all the rest. One thing stood between him and a weekly pay check. His wife is somewhat reluctant to tell him. He doesn’t realize that a fresh, dose shave is important in getting and holding a job.

Far too many men shave, without being clean shaven. The blade you choose and the way you use it make the difference. Of course you can’t shave your way to independence, but a fresh, immaculate appearance will help. The slightest growth of stubble is a handicap.

Today Gillette offers a new blade that makes close and frequent shaving easy and comfortable. It never roughens or irritates tender skin. Stubborn beard is sheared away quickly and smoothly. Try the new Gillette on our guarantee. You risk nothing. Buy a package and use two blades. If every shave isn’t clean and pleasant return the package to your dealer and he’ll refund the entire purchase price.
