We dress in 1920's costumes for some of our car club events. We are members of the Model T Ford Club. Our costumes are from the 1920's era, hubby wears red sleeve garters with a long sleeved white shiet & a red bow tie. I have a flapper dress & hat.

I told my dh I needed to buy a new swimsuit - the elbow and the knees were worn out in my old one. He didn't think that was funny.

I was watching an old black & white movie recently and I noticed that EVERY man was wearing a hat. They showed a crowded street and everyone was wearing one.

Now there might be a couple, but only if they're into the 'vintage' clothing thing.

What caused the DEATH of this trend??? Anyone know?

Let's blame it on the Beatles, Z. Everyone had to show their new 'long' hair.

Jack Kennedy was the one who really shot hat sales in the foot. I noticed since the weather has been so hot even the Jaguar coach is wearing a straw hat these days.DH always wears one playing golf (at least in the summer). I enjoy seeing clothes from almost any time except the 70's. That had to be the ugliest both in style and color of any time I remember...colors that flattered no skin tone and styles that were as bad.

i watch ALOT of Korean dramas and I love the vintage Korean dresses. I would love to take a picture in one of those beautiful dresses with the huge braided head piece, or in a kimono with the powdered face and red lips.

Do it, seester! and share the photos with us.

licia, I think you are right about the JFK thing. Our first "sexy" president. I missed the icky polyester 70s clothes at the time by being an unreconstructed hippie that didn't fit in anywhere anymore. (Not that that style was going to last much longer...)

Only to excess! My favourite period is Victorian. Most of my going out wardrobe consists of corsets, bustles, long skirts, gloves, hats, and parasols and boots. I dabble in Edwardian as well....long velvet gowns, free flowing as opposed to the constriction of the victorian era. I've got a few early 1900 pieces as well. I draw the line at the 1930's.

Every year my boyfriend and I go to Cape May's Victorian week festivities. Aside from those who own property or participate in the features, I seem to be the only one in complete attire. It does help with getting the best tables in the restaurants, however.

I believe I was never meant to be living in this century.

Aye ... I wear my Kilt in the summer for the games ... a bit too breezy to go regimental in the dead of winter ....

But, perhaps I misunderstood ... is this about "heratage" or a "costume party"?
