Women started wearing clothing which was both practical and fashionable. When women arrived at the workplace they became the primary sellers. It seemed that these were the “dress you need” dress codes of the time. Men would wear anything a woman brought him. They were generally dressy and flouncy. Women’s clothes were mostly formal and classy. Men were mostly dressed for a day out shopping and at home.
The first thing a man or woman who came in the workplace was required to wear was a shirt, a tie, and a plain red necktie. Women were expected to wear a plain blouse and be able to “pass” a “professional” white blouse. Some dresses would take one of three shapes: a skirt; a top with the shoulders cut off to a waistline (like a cocktail dress); or a long, formal “day outfit” with a red or white jacket.
In spite of all this, men began to wear shirts. Men continued to carry around their cell phones, pens, and paper. They even showed up in T-shirts. Men still looked out for the women in the workplace, but the “dress code” really dictated what they were allowed to wear.
When did men start wearing dresses?
Men started wearing dresses in the 1920s. Many of these were just a t-shirt, or a plain, well made dress. Some were quite plain though. One man who worked at a clothing store, told me that he used to call some of the female employees “dresses”.
When did suits become fashionable?
Dresses began to become a symbol of femininity and femininity was becoming less a matter of choice. Men began to wear suits because they were easier to wear than trousers. Men would often wear suit jackets and ties, but they were usually not the “dressy” type which were made of linen and suede. They were made out of nylon or wool, which was pretty much like a T-shirt. By far, what were most expensive were tie-dyes or tie ties.
Today, many men wear ties of various colors, which are simple and versatile. They’re made out of either polyester or spandex, and there’s different types of colors, including grey, black, gray, tan, and brown. There are also many different kinds of ties, including bowties, which are often made out of plastic. Today’s ties are made of cotton, which has become very popular.
