Carcanet thru Cloth Yard – From The Language of Fashion
This entry is part 16 of 21 in the series The Language of Fashion - 1939 Fashion Dictionary

Here are more fashion definitions from the “C” part of this 1930s fashion dictionary, The Language of Fashion by Mary Brooks Picken. It’s quite a feat to be scanning it all!

These pages define different types of cheques, chemises, and chingons. Illustrated and defined is a 19th Century Cascade (a type of collar fashionable in the 1800s), Ecclesiastical Cassock, Brassiere Chemise, Houndstooth check, shepherd’s check, chignon 1878, doric and ionic chiton (with the note that “some fashion writers use the word “chiton” as a synonym for “chemise””).
