1924 Men's Fashion Catalog
It was 1924! World War I was a rapidly fading memory, business
was booming, and prosperity was at hand. Men of means, as always,
went to their tailor to have their suits and overcoats made to
order. They selected a suit style from a fashion catalog and the
fabric they desired. The catalog posed nattily attired gentlemen
in a variety of suits and top coats. Gentlemen could choose from
two, three, or four button models, patch or flap pockets, and
several other modifications on the basic style. Norfolk jackets
and golf models were also pictured. The last page of this catalog
pictures the five body models that are available. They range from
loose-fitting to extremely form-fitting. The body of the catalog
specifies which body shapes are available for a particular style.
The catalog has ten double-sided plates and three single-sided
plates. The catalog measures 12.75" x 17.5" Other than
some minor soiling and edge roughness the catalog is in very nice
condition. An interesting document of American social history.
