I'm in a barbershop quartet, and we all need matching (or somewhat similar) outfits but all the barbershop quartets always have this gaudy 1800's looking striped shirts and straw hats. We do modern music, and to match we need modern clothes, yet we still need to pay homage to the early 1900's when that style of music was still popular. I was thinking slim fit slacks, suspenders, and vests all around. Thoughts? Also, as part of the 1920's homage thing I really like the idea of black and white saddle oxfords. Like these:
But I can't think of what kind of modern, almost hipster-ish clothes we can match those with?
So to sum it up, we need outfits that aren't entirely hipster, but aren't entirely 1910's Sunday best either. Something fun that shows that we're still a barbershop quartet, but something fairly trendy and modern. Thoughts?
