    Ads on Wheels: The Dry-Cleaning Van Straight Out of Mad Men

    Menswear blog A Continuous Lean calls the W.H. Christian and Sons dry-cleaning van "the best looking delivery truck in NYC," and we're not sure we disagree. The bold, all-caps typeface and the hunter green background seem like a nod to the kind of retro all-American look promoted by Don Draper and associates and embraced by Freemans Sporting Club and Steven Alan (and now the J.Crew men's store.) Of course, there's a twist: W.H. Christian's van looks old-fashioned because it's actually old. The Greenpoint company was founded in 1924, and the vans have had the same design since at least 1949.
