    Like the hats the reporters wore in King Kong or Platinum Blonde!

    Marc/Veronica, those are some awsome photos... thanks.

    I need to go scouting for those super pointy shirt collars that were the trend in the 30's. I run into them now and again at thrift stores though they are always the wrong size... next time I see one I'll get it for the sheer purpose of copying that dynamic curve and point.

    Wow, the underwear on one of those pages looks similar to these: J. C. Penney Underwear

    I have been searching for long-rise underwear to go with my long-rise pants so that I don't feel like my underwear is falling down. If they just had buttons instead of snaps.

    Brooks Brothers also carries those in a more vintage all cotton style.

    The buckles on those belts are fantastic. Never seen anything quite like those. Thanks for the great post.
     


  11. Display cases in antique malls occasionally show old square/rectangular belt buckles like that: sterling, burnished gold, silver plated, or just nickel plated. They usually sell for $20 or less, depending on the metal and degree of wear. More expensive is the leather belt itself (which should be between 1" and 1 1/4" thick). You need to buy a belt with metal snaps, so that the buckle can be easily attached; also, the belt cannot have holes, because those buckles don't have prongs. Brooks Brothers carries these types of belts, but they're not cheap.

    I bought a belt like this and it's been my favorite belt, after abhorring it after my father gave me several of these belts with huge chunky buckles. The one I bought had a small buckle that was almost level with the leather so it didn't create an unsightly bulge.

    I recently bought a pair of trousers, and the seller threw in this belt for free. I knew it looked familiar!
