Strange, random observation about the Dover catalog
I made a very strange observation, randomly.
The Dover catalog has 3 types of photos. Some are clearly provided by the manufacturer and the model is wearing head-to-toe that manufacturer's merchandise. Some of "action" show shots of famous riders with particular items of apparel/tack.
And then most of the photos are clearly taken BY Dover. It's the same models and you see them wearing more than 1 manufacturer's merchandise. As best as I can tell, in these shots, NONE of the female and child models have any jewelry or any type on. No earrings, necklaces, watches-- and NO RINGS. But if you turn to the men's section, there's one thing all these photos have in common. Every single man is wearing a wedding band. Some also have watches on. But they ALL have wedding bands.
This can't be an accident, and it's clear Dover has a professional photography team in charge of their catalog. So what does it mean? Dover believes its main demographic to be unmarried women and married men? That's odd...
