Advertisement in Glasgow University Magazine 13 December 1922, for dressing gowns from R W Forsyth, outfitters. Forsyth's advertisements often specifically targeted students, with the emphasis on stylish but formal clothing.
The character depicted here represented what was seen as the ideal young intelligent gentleman, still smartly dressed while relaxing at home and ready to receive any visitor who might call unexpectedly. The dressing gown came in a wide range of colours and materials, to meet all tastes.
