What did they wear in the 20s? – Etsy Great Gatsby

(Bobby Moore’s shirt is right there on the table.)

Here are my top 10 of all time, by the way. (This list was chosen by a group of you; I may have forgot someone famous or someone infamous.) I will leave this list open here for another entry on my blog. You could edit and add to it or edit my list to your liking. This will be my first “book” (just one, really.) This is still a work in progress!

1. The Man Who Would Be King (1929)

A great movie about a woman in a man’s world that changes her life.

2. The Wild Bunch (1960)

An excellent film documenting the struggle of a man who is a strong leader of his people, but ends up being replaced by another man.

A classic mafia film that gave us some of the coolest scenes ever.

7. The Searchers (1956)
