Fashion Supplement to The Tailor & Cutter, Autumn-Winter 1939-40


This little guide to gentlemen's tailored fashions has been sitting in my collection for years.   Since it was published at the very beginning of World War II, it includes pictures of RAF and (British) Army officers' uniforms.  Later in the war civilian men's clothing would be strictly regulated and rationed - so these dapper and generously cut outfits would be treasured items in the wardrobes of any men lucky enough to own them.
