In the 1930s, men dressed pretty dapper-ly (is that a word?). Ties and slacks were normal to wear every day.
Even workmen wore dress shirts — albeit the blue collar variety.
The best part about buying men’s clothes in the 30s? They had a complete outfit package where you would get a suit, a hat, 3 pairs of socks, 2 dress shirts, a tie, a pair of shoes for $25. No need to waste time on shopping, let’s get it all done at once!
Also, I have a weakness for Wombo Collars.
We’ll be breaking down 30s fashion year-by-year on this page, so if you made it here before we were done, please pardon our dust and leave your memories in the comments! We need your help!
