Vogue Pocket Protectors

September 21, 2009 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 87, ISSUE 38

I had the habit of wearing pocket protectors during my career as a manager at the Transelco Division of Ferro Corp. in Dresden, N.Y. When I retired in June 1998, the committee organizing my retirement party bought pocket protectors for all 100 guests. Each contained a label: "Be there and be square." When they were ordered through the local stationery store, the manager said, "Golly, are these things coming back into vogue again?"
