Last week I mentioned the trend of casual vintage want / wear that is in high demand this year. Men’s clothing requirements often begin with “I don’t want to wear a vest” or “how can I work with clothes I already have?” Although Oscar absolutely loves to wear classic-style suits, the majority of guests at the events we attend do not have such high appreciation – or perhaps due to a lack of budget. Three-piece suits are not as common in our modern wardrobes and are very expensive to invest in last things just to wear occasionally. I understand the dilemma. So what should men do? Although casual clothing is less popular than complete clothing, starting in the 1920s, men have turned towards the leisure or sporty style, leaving us with some inappropriate choices. to wear when wearing classic or vintage.
To show off these casual styles, I bought some new clothes and asked Oscar to volunteer as a model for me. The real clothes look a little better than a bunch of photos in my catalog or staged on a mannequin.
For this outfit, I focused on the 1940s. After the 1940s Style Guide series, I realized that I didn’t have many examples of menswear. Inspired by photos of men’s clothing from the 1940s, I created these six casual outfits that combine the new, modern and frugal ones that combine the 40’s. Most of the looks This can be achieved with what is already in a typical wardrobe, with the purchase of additional optional accessories such as a hat, vest, shoes or a strap. These looks are also part of the 1930s and 1950s, making them versatile enough to have a classic inspired overall look.
BASIC CLASSIC SITUATION OF MEN – DRESS AND CLOTHES
Most men have shirts and pants in their wardrobes. This is also the basis for classic men’s wear. The difference is in the cut of the clothing and accessories. From the 1920s to the early 1950s, wide-legged trousers and high waistband. Wearing a pair of these pants will instantly take you back mid-century. You can wear classic mid-1950s-style trousers, and even slim-fit trousers that give a ’60s look.
Next, add a shirt dress or a sports shirt. I look for wide collared shirts for the most vintage look and leave the top unbuttoned for a semi-casual look. Considering bold color and pattern, the shirt has one or two chest pockets and fits (not thin) well. Always wear them with high waistband pants and simple leather belts. You can also wear a sling instead of a belt for a different retro look at current trends. The button on the rope is best, but clicking is easier to find.
