Amazes me the 5 cent shine was sold by the shine of the young man promoting it - with woolen turtleneck and pleaded trousers and shiny boots. Even the young boy to the far right looks snappy.
Great looking hat, striped waist coat, corresponding well knotted tie, and fabulous corduroy coat with tailored collar. Even the fingernails are manicured.
A touch of formality with the tie, and a splash of casualness with the knot loosened. Woolen V-Neck sweater with corresponding green in the tie. Brown cap, although darker than the stripped suit, pulls from the suit's color cousins. Trousers have unique front pockets - not found too often in today's wear - and without a belt (perhaps suspenders underneath). Not sure if the white shirt is short or long sleeve. If long, the lack of cuffs seems off-set a tad.
Fabulous array of mixed blues and mixed solids with plaid waist coast. Not sure if the leather double holster shoulder belts would have its place in today's 911 environment - but I am sure they could be modified into another dress item - especially since the tie color could pull from the brown leather straps. And lets not forget the buttons were probably made of bone.
My favorite dress jackets for taller men - that of a high 3-4 button outer coat. I was going to guess this photo shows an inner waist coat, but a closer look seems to be another matching jacket of sorts. The great looking corresponding grey tie looks to be a cousin to one of the above photos.
We can certainly learn of the best of the past and how great designs still remain great today.
