Fashion Park

The following advertisements are from my personal collection. All are from a custom tailoring company called "Fashion Park" that was based out of Rochester, New York.

I don't have much information on Fashion Park other than it was in existance from the 1910s into the 1960s. Here's a 1929 financial article about Fashion Park and related brands.

I've seen only three Fasion Park suits (one from the late 1930s, one dated 1941 and the other from the 1950s) and I own two of them, shown below. All three of the suits I've seen from Fashion Park were of superior quality and styling compared to most others from the period. Which is saying a lot.

Late 1930s



1941-dated



Great suits with awesome silhouettes.


Onto the ads. These are posted in chronological order going down the page. Notice the changing styles (lapels, button stance, jacket lengths, etc.). Also note how the suits and overcoats of the late 1920s began to show the classic styling of the Golden Era.

All of these ads were illustrated by Ray Wilcox. I've been unable to find any real information about Wilcox so if you have any please let us know.

Enjoy.

In men's appearance world, a adapted appearance accepted as jeans which is a lot of accepted and acclaimed for every men's all over the world. Jeans accept a adapted address to every ages peoples from kids to old. Almost absurd to be fashionable as adorned or active ages after cutting jeans.
