The 1930s and 1940s were a huge change in the American style: a huge emphasis on tailoring, a huge push towards the new style of dress, the rise of the mass-produced suit. It all led to the famous ‘American Revolution’- a trend that became quite an iconic one in the United States.

But men didn’t need the help of a tailor to get their suits – many of the new tailors were friends and business associates of businessmen and even presidents.
We’re a long way away from those ‘American Revolution-era-tailoring’ pieces, but we still have plenty of examples of the 1930s and ’40s style in American men. We have these style choices:

It came in three main flavors: “loudmouth,” “loudmouth” and “loudmouth” plain.
A ‘Loudmouth’ tie had four large vertical holes in it. The ‘loud mouth’ variety had one large hole, and only three smaller holes.
