The first article I saw about men in the 1930s was in this magazine, Men in Style.
“How will you make the most of a women’s time? Find out what women do when they get home. It’s an experience you never forget. It’s one of life’s most absorbing days, and the right dress is all you need to wow her.”
The point of the article is to show that women are in charge of their dress.
This is a big concept in the 1930s. The world was still quite segregated, and it was still illegal for Jews to marry.
It also made it very difficult for men to dress well, because there wasn’t this uniformised uniformed body.
The article states that women didn’t wear clothes to suit men in this way, but rather, they dressed like men to avoid showing off their bodies.
It also explains men’s dress “made for a man”, and this suggests that the dress was chosen on aesthetic grounds.
“The most essential dress for a man is a little something, which he will go out into the world with, as if he were his dog, and he would be left alone. He must take his suit, his tie, his shoes, his hat, and he will feel as if he were as handsome as a dog. He will need at least a dressing gown that will give him a perfect appearance. He must also be prepared to have it washed and ironed and he will need something to match it. He needs a hat. And a collar and a tie.”
It’s hard to believe that at the end of 1930s many men would have thought so much about the things that make a man attractive, but it is true.
This idea that men’s appearance and dress should be tailored to make him attractive to women makes sense, and is a crucial piece of what explains why the 1930s is remembered so fondly by men today.
Women are told to dress in ways they can admire or simply dress casually — that’s all a man can wear.
The idea that women must dress modestly and in a manly way isn’t new, but it was a new idea, and the 1930s saw the development of this idea in an entirely different way.
To understand women as a distinct group, the 1930s were a time when women were told to not wear revealing clothes, be dressed in casual clothing, dress with simple colors, and if possible,
