1935 Boys and Mens Fashions – hats, suits, shirts, pants…

It’s interesting that mens’ suits fashions haven’t changed much in about 80 years. Advertising for men has changed quite alot since the 1930s though- and prices! $8.95 – wow. 37 cents for a “fine yarn blue chambray” mens’ shirt in a style that looks like it could be worn today. I think fashions for boys have changed, but I don’t have kids or keep up on children’s clothing fashions.

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
