1931 Pamphlet: "Correct Apparel for Gentlemen"

These were printed for 'Society Brand Clothes'; this specific one is from 'Wilson's Clothes Shop', Brookville, Pa.

Very high quality illustrations and color suit photos. Also several flaps with style advice underneath. In perfect condition, like it's never seen the light of day.  The colors are crisp and rich.

The beginning of the Golden Era of men's clothing started in the late 1920s and early 1930s, putting this little book right in the middle of it.  This pamphlet is from when silhouettes and proportions were just getting to be perfect and it shows within its pages.
