ART DECO DAY WEAR

 In the 1920s and 1930s, wing collars and stiff detachable collars were abandoned for all but the members of a few formal professions such as the law.

  Long neckties, cravats, or jolly bow ties were worn with the new, softer-collared shirts. The collar could be either long and pointed or cutaway, a style favoured by the Prince of Wales, Edward.

 Tie clips, which fixed the tie to the shirt, were fastened halfway down the length of the tie, just above the waistcoat, which itself often had a much racier design than the plain black or pinstripe affairs favoured by Edwardian men of substance.

  Flat caps were just one of several accessories that were reminiscent of the golf course, where American styles made a big impression.

 Argyll socks and Fair Isle sweaters were further variations on the same sporty theme.
