    I thought it might be good to put up some images of some of the classics in clothing /style. For those that have read Manton's books or seen posts of vintage illustrations from the 1930's, it seemed appropriate to dig up some potentially inspiring shots from the past to present since alot of reference is made to them.

    Please post some of your favorites and perhaps we can all share in some good visuals.

    Makes me want to go out and buy another peak-lapel suit today.


    It was a sad day when women stopped wearing hats regularly.

    I want that suit so badly it hurts. Might look a little outdated in present day though. Great pictures so far, guys. [​IMG]
