Fascinating, Mario. Thanks for posting! :eusa_clap
Great stuff, Mario - thanks so much for posting this. Some lovely suits and general outfits in there, plus a lot of distinctly mid-width ribbons on the hats.
The fellow on the right. What would we call that outfit? Striped trousers, not a cutaway, small bow tie, low hat. I like it.
Also? Dented homburg-ishes. Nice
The 40's Stetson homburg I have has persistent front dents that want to be there, no matter how carefully I press them out. Open the box, there they are again.
Also, I see gloves all around these images. Marty? See the gloves?
Is it a proto-stroller?
In germany we call this outfit a "Stresemann" after a politician who did wear this in 1925 because he was sick of changing clothes during the day and found the cutaway too unpractical. I would have expected a homburg hat though.
Very nice scnas, Mario. Thank you for the afford. I will post some new scans next week (american, german and french catalogues)
There are many more like these at nypl's online digital gallery, including a lot of fashion plates from the 10s and 20s. Great place for reference.
Mario wonderful! Many thanks, the gent's outfit on the right of the first slide is very much my ideal (if it wa a 3 button waistcoat...).
Scotrace: I would call that a stroller/black lounge outfit, like morning dress but with a stroller instead of a cutaway coat.
I love the Mocha Brown Herringbone SB Peak Lapel Overcoat.
All wonderful photos, makes me sad as I can rarely find a tweed in my size.
I want that SB linen suit with peak lapels from image #2...
Love the new avatar, by the way..... Very cool.
TThe green 3 piece suit O YEA that's the suit!
