Pamper Your Man!

Pamper Your Man!
"Pamper your man . . . and the whole family, too! Dremel Electric Shoe Polishers."

This is the front panel of a folded product tag that was originally attached to a shoe polisher purchased in 1965 ("7-65" is penciled in on the back). Inside are brief descriptions of the different models--The Aristocrat, The Diplomat, and The Executive--and a service guarantee.

The inside text begins with the statement, "This Dremel Electric Shoe Polisher is a man-pleasing gift the whole family can use--and enjoy."

A "man-pleasing gift"? Yikes!
