In 2007, I launched on this site a column called Lets' Bring Back -- which has since celebrated hundreds of forgotten-yet-delightful fashions, pastimes, objects, and personalities.
From zeppelins to sealing wax, from turbans to typewriters, from Auntie Mame to the Ziegfeld Follies, Let's Bring Back has covered a lot of ground. Special editions of the column included a wildly popular Mad Men edition and the crowd-pleasing "Culinary Delectables" edition, among many others.
This week, Let's Bring Back made its official debut as a book -- and in honor of its release, I've compiled some of the most popular items mentioned in the column over the years.
I hope you enjoy revisiting these things, and let us know what you'd like to bring back in the comments section below!

It would be nice to see people dress up when they went out. I never experienced the era but it seemed a lot classier. My blue-collar grandfather even had a suit, tie, overcoat and fedora to wear when he and my grandmother would go out. Too often I see denim and ball caps worn out to restaurants. The least a man could do is take off the hat. Average people have very little class left these days.
