Edwardian-era clothing & accessories.


Thought I'd make a thread for clothing and accessories that were worn and which were common during the Edwardian era (ca. 1901-1910).

Everything from watches, chains, walking-sticks, top-hats, cravats, suits and other weird items of clothes, like spats, which nobody in their right mind would wear these days!

Re: Edwardian-era clothing & accessories.


Is there any or much clothing and accessories from the Edwardian era still worn by people today?

Even in today's society, I have seen people wearing suspenders (braces), fedora hats (which were coming into style in the 1910s), waistcoats, etc. There's a guy in my university class who wears a fedora all the time.

I wish I could buy myself a waistcoat or two. I like them. The only one I ever had was when I was a kid, and I've obviously outgrown that...

I would say that only if you're an actor playing a role either on stage or in a movie based on the 'Turn of the Century/Edwardian era,' would these kinds of clothing be worn. And today, in these endtimes for which we're now live, that would be very rare. B/c even Broadway has fallen on hard times.

Black Boots have not gone out of fashion from 1900- present day 2010.
Alot of ladies today 2010 wear nearly identical office black boots to ladies that wore black boots as day wear 1900-1912.

I have a sepia photo of WMM wearing a double-breasted suit jacket for which its collar is narrower than the lapel.

I've seen these same suit jackets on TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network) different pastors. I've also seen them worn on The Lawrence Welk Show classics by both him and his band members.

So therefore--these styled jackets are still popular today.
