Ladies Tailored Suits 1880s-1930s
The innate longing to look one's best is, at the changes of the seasons, most satisfactorily answered by the tailored suit. With a well-cut tailored suit and a becoming hat, a woman can enjoy the supreme satisfaction of knowing that she is well dressed for any occasion.
This simple but extremely fashionable costume will prove admirable for general wear in either city or country. It is serviceably developed in dark plaid cheviot with velvet of a harmonizing hue.
The smart coat used dark-green broadcloth, with machine-stitching for the finish. Mixed red and black Cheviot was used in developing the skirt, which is decorated with strappings of plain fabric. For shopping, touring, etc., this tailored suit will prove particularly acceptable. English suiting and dark velvet are used in the development, with stitching giving a tailor-like finish.
It is a matter open to conjecture and speculation as to what potential influence has been brought to bear on trotteurs and tailor-made suits during the last few months. That they have departed in many instances from the masculine simplicity that has heretofore characterized them is patent to the least observant.
The entire world knows that the crisp line trotting horse is edging not only to the center of the stage but well down to the footlights. When voices are raised to a high pitch concerning the virtues of common sense tweeds and their proper handling, one collides suddenly, unpreparedly, with its evolution — the "soft-line" tailored tweed.
