Fashion is an endless rehash of the past, this picture is the perfect example. Today you could run into urbanite men wearing the exact same fitted suit as the man to the left, with the sleeves just a bit too short with no shirt sleeve peeking through. It also reminds me of Pee Wee Herman’s!
But seriously, these two were quite the sight. The RPPC suffered a crease by the head of the gent to the right but that wasn’t enough of a deterrent for me to not get it. They were most definitely brothers who would have been considered fashion forward in their time. The shirt collar over the lapels isn’t a common sight on RPPCs either.
