    Those are really great. The US army uniform is particularly interesting, from a time when a young man with a new commission going into the army would go to his tailor to have them make his uniform.

    What is also neat about clothes from this period is the very fitted look, particularly around the waist. If you have the figure for it, it looks really smashing.

    Of course, somehow clothes in such a style are now seen as feminine for some reason.

    Well, when you have 60% obesity and 90% homophobia, it's definitely difficult
    to look stylish. :rolleyes:

    Question: Did this ad sell socks or send gentlemen to another brand? (ca. 1912)​

    90% homophbia? Where do you get that fact? I think it is most likely the other way around. 90% or more acceptance and tolerance of homosexuality.
    I dislike the term homophobia. I'm not afraid of homos.

    Quote: "I dislike the term homophobia. I'm not afraid of homos."

    Rhetoric? or did you just forget the 'smiley'

    Is it fair to say that the issue of Homophobia is more about
    prejudice- against, rather than 'fear-of'?
    Fear of association maybe?

    Average Joe isn't as slim as he used to be, if contemporary clinical obesity statisctics are true. And people are looked at sideways now if too stylish,
    paying 'too much' attention to dress and grooming- that was my point.
    Two of many possible reasons why-

    Modern society is far too superficial and coarse in its' judgement of people.

    Vintage Menswear Questions. . .

    Pardon me gentlemen, just three quick questions about the pictures above:

    1) Are the ads geared toward a British market, or American with Anglophile styling?

    2) Exactly what kind of garment is the gent wearing in the right hand picture in the second row? Is it a suit jacket, or an overcoat? I just can't tell.

    3) Anyone else notice the slanted, or 'hacking' pockets on the suit jackets? Thought that was interesting because I didn't realize they were used on anything but hacking jackets during this particular era- which I'm guessing is circa 1914-1925?

    Thanks in advance for yor answers!

    Flitcraft-
    It's a 'suit jacket' with a belt which can be worn as seen, inside the jacket, just on the back, or completely removed. According to the text- can be had with patch or slash pockets.

    Biltmore Bob- you're a Grinophobe-

    BT...what absolutely spiffing pics my man!!

    BT..You have come up trumps with those pics. Where did you manage to dig them up there digger? as I just love pics like that, in fact I would have them framed and up in my study (sad..but true!! counselling just doesn't help me).

    Might I also add, you are like a proverbial onion, me auld Kiwi!! many more layers to you than at first meets the eye (as I have only known you previously due to our common vintage flight jacket/vintage aviator interest. Cheers for that! :cheers1:

    Thanks Mr. Paddlesworth. The pics are off the 'net, same size and resolution
    as I found them- copy them and do with them what you will.
    The vintage thing pre-dates the FJ thing for me- the WW2 flight jacket is a vintage jacket. And thanks for the onion comment?

    Hooray for that. Here's some similar material, appropriated from elsewhere...

  19. That's right: skinny pegged pants were NOT a 1960s invention.

    I can hardly believe how high the button stance and back belts are on some of these illustrations! Practically halfway up the ribcage.
