Wow. I'm always bewildered by the broad silhouette of the era, but that coat on the third page takes the cake!
That fingertip coat rocks! I'd wear it myself (especially if I could buy it for less than $10.) I am so aware of the style and thought put into everyday folks' wardrobes; this is something we're too often missing today. Thanks, I usually learn something new from your blog.
Yeah, that coat is pretty ridiculous. Those books under his arm are dwarfed by his shoulders.
