Fashion for men in 1952: a classic post-war suit. After years of wartime austerity, by golly glamour returned to Britain in the 1950s! With clothes rationing ending in 1949, the post-war gentleman may have sported a suit with wide trousers and accompanying turn-ups.

So classic. As lovely and elegant today as it was 50 years ago. An exceptional little black dress, vintage late 1950s, early 1960s Pat Sandler silk layered cocktail dress with fetching wide set shoulder straps and scoop neckline, nipped waist and airy layers of silk chiffon skirt. Metal back zipper.
