Thank you for sharing these, they are great. Beautiful details.
Gee-whiz, looks like the notch lapel tuxedo isn't a modern abomination. :eusa_doh:
The illustrator was probably drunk. He also drew all of the bottom jacket buttons buttoned!
They sure knew how to wear their chins in those days.
The "Tuxedos" also appear to have flap pockets.
and you get a prince albert for 3$ with them... :whistling
Thank you for the scans. Although the cut of 1920s suits isn't my favourite style I really love the illustrations.
I was noticed both of those points as well. Another thing I thought was interesting was that the silhouette, particularly on the sack suits, is so much more squared-off than what you see just s few years later.
What a great peek into the advertising world of the past. Thanks for posting these!
The sack must really have gone into hiding after 1930. You don't see the word used anymore, and almost all jackets are darted and hourglassed. Being a well-upholstered fat cat wasn't something a man wanted to flaunt!
The "Full Box Effect" might have worked in 1903 with a high bowler hat, but in 1928, ouch!
About the Ulster coats, here's a definition of the style: 6x3 DB front, stout protective collar, thick welt, patch-flap pockets (No. 726 has only the flap), cuffed sleeves, and tweed or similar heavy goods. Puristically, real Donegal tweed (I'm sure these weren't).
THANK YOU for posting this. Wonderful stuff.
Fantastic as usual rlk! Thanks for sharing. I was surprised too by all the 'sack' cuts... Things changed quite a bit in two years into the heavily fitted and definitive hourglass shapes through the 40's.
I have to echo this point. I was actually surprised by the notch lapel in panel 10. I honestly didn't expect to see that.
These are excellent!! Thank you for your time to add these.
