The attached black and white advertisement was placed in an American veteran's magazine as an attempt to produce some profit from the vast surplus of uniform items that remained in all the combatant nations at the close of the First World War.

Puttees, unlike other uniform items, enjoyed a brief moment in fashion's spotlight during the late teens and much the twenties as an accessory for those who enjoyed camping, hunting and skiing (or simply wished to affect those looks).

Also included is a fashion photograph of puttees from a VANITY FAIR fashion editorial of 1917.
