1930's Menswear Paper...

I recently wrote a paper (full of illustrations from Apparel Arts) titled "Taste is Timeless: How the 1930's Set the Precedent for Modern Menswear". It covers suits, sportcoats, trousers, ties, shoes and pocket squares, as well as influences on 30's dress (mainly the Duke). I had originally planned to explore the topic in much greater depth, but since it's for an undergraduate history course, I had to trim it down. This is why I don't touch on shirts, casual clothing, hose, etc.

It rings in at about 15 pages double spaced, so it's not an agonizingly long read. If you'd like to take a look, post your e-mail addy or PM it to me. If it's already in your user info, just make that clear in your post.

Special thanks to Michael Alden, etutee & the London Lounge for the images used in the paper.

The '60s was the high-point of men's wear. You could wear fully conservative morning suits while escorting women in Courreges metal dresses and drive a Jaguar E-Type. It over-turned everything and that is exactly what is appealing about it.
