    I came across this magazine a little while ago, archive.org has all (if not, most) editions digitalized and archived ranging from 1916 all the way to 1943. So there are images of interest for all of us, whether you prefer the late teens or the thirties!

    Here is the link!

    And a few pages that caught my eye to give you an impression.

    A most excellent resource indeed! Thank you very much for sharing this.

    Very interesting looks throughout, some especially eye-catching
    ...though not always for the right reasons, for example:
    A button-down collar with a Double-Breasted suit?!? :eek:

    My pleasure!

    I just posted some in the 1920's suits thread, but I'll be sure to post some less specific favourites here as well!

    One thing, for instance, I noticed is the amount of casual outfits.

    Plus, of course, that one in the original post! (which looks like it could have been taken today!)

    I found this to be quite amusing...
    I guess I purchased out-of-style clothes because all mine had more than one pocket! And to think that Prohibition was still an issue!

    *EDIT* Does anyone happen to know if this set still exists?

    I am a classic film nut. All genres except Westerns and Musicals of 1930 and until 1949. Actually the best ones were all from 1928 until 1946. Westerns and Musicals of 1930 and until 1959. I like silents from 1914 until 1929 too. Of course I have always been obsessed with them PhotoPlays.
