    Looking at just the photos on this page (or the page before, if this post jumps to the top of the next page) highlights one of the things I love about clothes from the '30s and '40s - there was so much more texture to them. Today, many suits, sport coats, trousers, overcoats, etc. are finished "smoothly." Most wool items today are very refined in their finish which removes some of the interest and character from the clothes.

    Don't you think this guy has a 60s haircut? He looks like a stasi spy.

    When I first saw this photo I was struck by how much might have come from the 60s - the woman's boldly geometric (and presumably brightly coloured) top, the man's single cuff buttons (very Carnaby Street) and the hair cuts - that if someone had said it was a still from thirty years later I would have accepted it.

    Erwin Schrödinger wearing a soft-draping flannel sportcoat/suit with buttoned pocket flap, round neck sweater and bowtie.

    An Austrian website dates it to 1933, which seems correct.
    There are some more photos of him at that occasion, but they are all portraits.

    Some more Schrödinger... another archetype of the intellectual/scientist with scruffy hair, round spectacles, tweed and bowtie.

    1943



    Probably also around 1943



    And another bowtie portrait... certainly 1928-1932.
