Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For this historically accurate sampling of authentic 1930's fashion, Stella Blum, former Curator of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, selected for reproduction 133 representative pages from rare Sears catalogs of the period (1933-1939). Hundreds of illustrations record what men, women, and children were actually wearing in the '30s when, as a copy line from the fall 1930 catalog proclaimed, "Thrift is the spirit of the day. Reckless spending is a thing of the past".

Synopsis:

Catalog illustrations show what American men, women and children actually wore during the 1930s, including shoes, coats, underwear, shirts, blouses, hats, dresses, purses, suits, and sweaters.

Synopsis:

Hundreds of authentic images reflect a mood of economic austerity. Over 130 fully illustrated pages from Sears catalogs offer historically accurate pictures of what men, women, and children wore throughout the decade.

Synopsis:

Over 130 fully illustrated pages from Sears catalogs offer historically accurate images of what men, women, and children wore throughout 1930s. Hundreds of illustrations reflect the era's mood of economic austerity and its departure from the flamboyance of Twenties fashions in favor of lower hemlines and garments made from more traditional, affordable materials.  

Synopsis:

Over 130 fully illustrated pages from Sears catalogs record what men, women, children wore throughout 1930s. 133 pages of black-and-white illustrations. Publisher's Note.
