Here is an elusive detail of early 1900?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s fashion that I have always wondered about, but never had anyone to ask. Now I have my colleagues at The Fedora Lounge as a resource! The item I am referring to is a white, starched cotton or linen lining/piping around the front neck area of a gentleman?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s vest. I am led to understand that this was very much a social-status symbol, worn only by upper-class gentlemen. Here is a detail from a portrait of President Woodrow Wilson Wearing one of these: Can anyone tell me what this thing is called? Does anyone know how these were attached to the vest? Am I correct that they were made of starched cotton or linen? Where could I get one? How could I make one? I think this is a very ?¢‚Ç¨Àúspiffy?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢ little detail that would lend a very distinguished touch to an early 1900?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s outfit.
