A century of IBM attire

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Thought you guys might be interested in this website. It shows a century of fashion at one of America's biggest and most conspicuous corporations: http://www-03.ibm.com/ibm/history/ex...ywewore_1.html IMO, they looked good until about 1990.

Very, very interesting. Great visual showcase of how the styles got more and more casual. Love the photo of the employees in the classroom - everyone wearing suits. Interesting to see the number of gorgeous 3-piece suits from the 30's to the 70's, then the last photo showing employees wearing ugly shoes with slacks and casual shirts.

A lot more variety than I would have guessed: DB, plaids, tans, etc. Some real clunkers, however.

I agree with Versace, very interesting indeed, but weird looking through some of the 70's attire, and thinking that will come back, if it isn't already creeping in.

I really like the skinny-lapeled trend as of late. I do not look forward to the day when huge lapels and fat ties are back in vogue.
