    What a cool photo. I love the contrast and the deep lighting. Those glasses are crazy! Love the suit in the field.

    These vintage photos are great. Could you create a 'Category' on the right-hand column of your site for 'Vintage'? That might be useful as you post more and more of these. Just an idea!

    Best,

    Just wonderful.
    Probably one of my favourites out of the ones you've posted.
    Reminds me of Peter Pan a bit: magical in a way.
    As I said, love it.

    this one is a great sample of how the suit was a regular clothing set-up and not strictly for special occasions. also, this makes me think of an off-duty superhero looking at the want ads.

    When looking at old photos from the 1930's, 40's, and 50's, I notice that a lot of people did not distinguish between "work" clothes and "play" clothes.

    There's plenty of photo evidence of men at ball games and boxing matches in suits, and housewives shopping downtown in their Sunday best.

    It's interesting to me because I can't help but think that the fibers and materials were not comfortable back then, especially in warm and hot weather.

    The irony is that today, when you can buy a worsted wool suit or dress slacks that are as comfortable as a pair of jeans, yet almost no one wears them, and certainly not outside the workplace.

    I love seeing men in suits doing casual activities. It surprises me just as much when I see men in Europe riding a bicycle while wearing a suit. I know it's fairly common there, but nobody in Atlanta would ride a bike in anything but full on athletic gear.

    Finally! A picture of someone who DOESN'T look as though he ran through the pile of laundry in the corner of his TriBeca loft.
