Dressing Etiquette

By: Josef Kleffman


During the late 1930ís far more attention was paid to color and style.  One simply didn't throw on any old shirt and tie without considering the whole ensemble. Some of the dressing etiquette that was commonly observed included:
A blue suit would require a white, blue, grey or natural shirt; the tie would be blue, maroon or brown.
Pocket handkerchief (remember those?) would be white, some shade of blue, a shade of maroon, or brown with white The colors should NEVER match the tie perfectly as they are there to accent it.
Socks should be a color pattern that is close to the tie or the pocket handkerchief.

The shoes should be black or brown; and the hat either grey, brown, or black.

A change in suit color requires you to rethink your choices again.

A grey suit would require a white, blue, black or green shirt; the tie should be red, brown, blue, or green; the pocket handkerchief should be red, brown, blue, or green; socks should be a color pattern that is close to the tie or handkerchief (but remember, it should not match exactly)

Shoes should be black or brown; and top it with a hat that is either grey, brown or black.

Lastly, lets look at what to wear with a brown suit. This suit would require a white, green, tan or natural shirt; your

tie should be red, brown, or green; the 

pocket handkerchief should be red, brown, or green; your socks socks should be a color pattern that is close to the tie or handkerchief (again, remember not to match exactly).

Shoes should be black or brown; and your hat should be grey, brown, khaki, or black.

You may have noticed a common thread here (no pun intended). Always remember that your socks should be of a similar color to either your tie or pocket handkerchief (but not an exact match).  These men understood complementary colors.  Shoes were pretty much mostly black or brown.


 

 

A good dresser notices detail in others
Colors and patterns speak for you; Blues convey youth, browns indicate openness and trustworthiness; while deep grays embody somberness and dignity.

Specific clothing pieces make statements about you.
Good looking men call the shots. By thinking about colors and patterns in a meaningful way rather than just throwing together anything that doesnít clash too badly you may save yourself from being the guy whose tie seems to ripple on TV someday.
