1910s Fraternity brothers. Mankato. RPPC. Private Collection.

Well dressed handsome fraternity brothers proudly displaying their banner. Big boy in the middle has a ribbon on his coat.

Ever wondered why some suits still have a buttonhole on the left lapel? There you have it. This piece of jewelry has gone by the wayside but boutonnieres are still widely used on special occasions.
