Vintage Inspiration: Casual Men
Here's a vintage inspiration that I've been anxious to do for a while. Men! There is so much good casual vintage fashion for men. Lots of plaid, slightly baggy pants and the hair! The hair sort of makes all these photos.
I thought it would be fun to focus on casual clothing for men. Since I just happened upon a ton of vintage plaid button-ups for the shop, it's sort of fun to see how they were originally styled.
I love how you can see all the men's socks in the photo above. Argyle socks! I'm planning on doing another one of these with just men's swimwear because there are SO MANY old photos of men in swim trunks.
I am actually really surprised to see that men's fashion hasn't changed a whole lot in 50 or so years. Really it's just the hairstyle that's changed and men tend to wear more fitted pants without pleats. Of course, all these men look so handsome. I love looking at old photos to gain fashion inspiration and it's handy when I'm shopping for the store to look out for some of the items I see.
