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.
In the 1950s, conservatism and conformity rule, with trim tailoring and similar accessories (hat, pocket square, cigarette, and martini) for just about everyone. Downtime sees the occasional glimpses of flair (shantung jackets, madras prints, Hawaiian shirts).
1940s fashion - The 30s brought in the fashion of women wearing slacks, but the 40s really moved it along with so many women working in environments that made it necessary for safety and modesty reasons.
