    Before it was on Seinfeld?

    i just found out some people never knew it was a real thing! :eek:

    I used to get it maybe 25 years ago in the mail, and my mother and I would always laugh over how stupid it was.

    it was printed on very heavy paper, like construction paper, with paintings of the items, not photographs, and the write-ups for the items were ridiculous.


    example:
    Alexandra the Great annexes the top floor of the Cristallo Palace Hotel, prompting Hans-Rudi to cancel a week’s worth of ski lessons.Counts Fico and Obomovski feign playing backgammon in the lobby. The grocer at the cooperativo has no more blood oranges for his regulars; you-know-who insists they make the best mimosas.A sweater-dress of this magnitude disrupts the order of things.It exposes less than nothing — a hint of calf, ten long fingers — yet the effect is a revelation. And notice how the springy Merino wool holds its shape.Alexandra understands all this, of course, as well as the wearability factor. Dark glasses and boots for daytime reconnaissance, add a few baubles for dinner and cause a stir.

    I thought it was a Seinfeld thing. I just never thought about it before. Is Vandalay industries a real company too?

    That actor sometimes made me wonder if he knew why he was was funny.

    the catalog itself.

    just look at my first post. that's a write-up for a fucking DRESS! a DRESS! the catalog was so ridiculous.

    i can't believe they are still in business, but it appears they are.

    i still get the catalog, it's kind of fun but the clothes seem very dowdy lately but i guess that's the point. they are classic and never go out of style.

    Still get it. It usually gets tossed straight into the recycle bin, but I'll have to take another look.

    I only got it once in the mail and I saved it ... now if I can just remember where I put it. As a Seinfeld fan, I was so thrilled to have it.

    I got it then and still get it. They spam me every morning but I don't mind. I like that goofy company.
