    The first two guys could be right from today's catwalks with their low waisted trews and the shirts sticking out between waistcoat and trousers.

    The clothes in the second photo look extraordinarily contemporary.

    edit: snap! Simultaneous post.

    There's a 1920's original suit currently on ebay, asking $200 but it would seem that they don't ship to the UK.

    "The Boardwalk Empire" inspired me to get a few suits (pants + vest, tailor made) to go to work. Eventually, I stopped using those suits to go to the office. You'll see, I hate my job and it doesn't inspire me! LOL

    But somehow, I always felt attracted to the 1890's /1950's era. I'd wish all the women still were using those hairstyles and clothes. ;)

    Who else have a crush for "flappers and Pin up's"?? :)
     
  13. "Boardwalk Empire" was a clothing feast. It exaggerated some of the styles of the day or made it appear that the - probably rare - very fashion-conscious male dresser of that day was more the norm. Overall, I enjoyed Nucky's outfits the most, but Chalky White's bold and confident clothes were a fun thing to see.

    As to the flappers, I love that look and appreciate its place in women's fashion history as it represented a true break with the past where undergarments of heavy construction had been used to conceal the actual woman's body while creating some exaggerated silhouette. Instead, the flapper style dropped all that in favor of simple, unconstructed (or no) undergarments and strait, clean lines to dresses, skirts etc. that left the woman's actual body shifting around just under the outer fabric. Very risqué for its day, but IMHO, a freeing and natural change that revolutionized women's fashion.

    Much more comfortable for the woman and much more natural looking - you can see that shift echoed again in late '60s women's fashion.

    When In London you can see some women dressing and styling their hair like that. To be honest they look much more femenine and attractive than nowadays mainstream fashion
