    A timeless movie: And Then There Were None, directed by René Clair in 1945. I'm quoting this because it brought menswear to my attention.

    Bond of Fear (1956) flecked wool sports jackets




    That is pretty much an average outfit for me on a day-to-day basis. Mind you, it was pretty much the standard casual look, with minor variations, for all British men between 1925 and 1955. Nice and simple.

    I like the slit pocket + ticket pocket look. I know slit pockets are technically dressier, but it's SO functional to just be able to jam your hands into your jacket pockets without contending with a flap. Great for a casual jacket.

    Here's an example of the very low buttoning 1940s double breasted suit. this one - worn by James Mason in 'They Were Sisters' - buttons at a level below the line of the pockets:

    The peak lapels on that suit checked suit in the first picture are positively rakish. As usual, thanks for these screen grabs TT.

    The glen plaid, three-piece, single breasted suit from "Take a Chance" is gorgeous. Thank you for posting TT.

    nice back treatment with two inward-facing pleats and centre vent (from the film 'Malena')



    (sorry, didn't get a shot of the front but it had two patch chest pockets).
