Does Worried Man himself produce these illustrations?
Old Sokol cartoon from Playboy. I think the caption is like "Tuck my shirt into what shorts?" or something like that.
Paul Rand. 3/2 with only the bottom button buttoned...
Not too many Ivy dressers around JFK. I'm not sure who the guy on the far left is in this photo of Kennedy and Von Braun, but he's killing it with an OCBD, navy and yellow repp tie, 3/2 suit with cuffed trousers and brown or burgundy oxfords. Not sure what color the suit is, different exposures show a blue or a gray...
I'd say definitely grey, though which shade I'm not sure. Surely the rule, no brown in town would apply here and they'd be in burgundy shoes if not black? Strange to see JFK With a hat as well.
Who say's JFK was the death of the formal hat!

1950s East Coast Classic - found these whilst researching something else on the GlamAmour blog
Edward tells GlamAmor, "Regarding dress in the 1950s, there was of course a social class thing, but as a rule I was just going along with the prevailing style. For example, men (even children older than say...ten) were not allowed entry into the better restaurants without a coat and tie. And one never flew on an airline without a coat and tie. The airlines were for a while considering imposing a dress code to prohibit warm-up suits and the like, but the masses ultimately prevailed. And fashion, as a requirement for social acceptance, started going out the window in the 60s."
"My entire getup, except for the shoes, was from Brooks Brothers. I still have the jacket and, in fact, wore it when we went to Denmark in 2005. It fits me just as well today, and is just as fashionable as it was when it was bought."
