When Musicians Dressed Swell

Pictured: the Floyd Standifer (on trumpet) band of Seattle, circa 1960, playing at Pete’s Poopdeck.
You don’t see any Plumber’s Crack, skinny, shorty-legs pants  or tee-shirts here. These professional musicians are dressed with self-respect, and are plenty comfortable with their short-sleeved white shirts and belts to hold up their trousers at the Actual Waist, which keeps them looking tall and well-proportioned.
The Beatles, Consistently Well-Dressed Musicians, circa 1965

Elegant Dressing for Fall and Winter: Tweed Suit

Elegant Dressing for Autumn: Classic Tweed Travelling Suit

M-J de Mesterton in Aquascutum Tweed Suit, Her Perennial Favourite

Rugged, traditional, natural and elegant tweed made from Scottish wool is the best material for fall and winter dressing. Easily covered with a trench-coat or embellished with a pashmina or long wool scarves, tweed will keep you warm and dry. Tweed suits, skirts, trousers and jackets are always fashionable.
