In the 1920s men wore a good suit, tie, hat and shoe. Suit jackets were usually single breasted, with minimal buttons, and had an overall loose appearance. Pants were held high on the waist with pleats at the top and cuffs at the bottom. In cool seasons suits were dark grey, blue or brown wile summer colours were white, ivory, pastels and occasionally pink. A daywear vest, if not designed to match the suit, would be a similar shade of colour such as tan with an off-white suit, or pastel colour with a darker suit. A typical button down dress shirt in white would be most fashionable and comfortable. Bow ties were more common then neck ties. Bright solid colours or patterns of geometrical shapes were the height of fashion. Ties were thinner and a bit longer in the 20's then they are today. Pocket squares were folded in the men's front jacket pocket.
