I didn't think I had much to contribute to Sepia Saturday, though I remember my grandfather in "braces," the last post I did which showed lots of pictures of him didn't show his suspenders. Drat it all. (PS, I've linked 3 times now to Sepia Saturday above, and finally have the main site link, hope it works for you)
SO what do I have with the great 40s look? Lots of women...but what about the men?
I'll submit this shot of the family (maybe after church ?)...probably in San Antonio, Texas...which was actually taken in the late 30s. That double breasted suit of my fathers was probably what he was married in. My grandfather on the far right has a vest on as well, hiding those suspenders. And I do so miss the men's jauntily tilted hats. Of course the clown was the youngest of my father's brothers, Uncle Jimmy. And women wore hats to church all the time then as well.
