Lets start with one of my favorite jacket style, the belted back. This ad is from the 1940s. The men are wearing a sporty jacket with a half belt. This style derives from earlier Norfolk Jackets, the grandfather of the sport jacket, and has their tradition in hunting gear.

Here is an early 1930s Palm Beach double breasted suit I own with a belted back.

Here's the National Recovery Administration tag, dating this garment from between 1933 and 1935. The NRA was part of the National Recovery Act, one of the policies enacted by FDR during the Great Depression.

Another belted back suit I have. This one is another 30s piece. There's an illustration i have somewhere showcasing the different types of half-belts and action backs. This style came back into fashion briefly in the late 60s. These were sporty, or casual, suits in their hey-day.

Do you ever wear these clothes senpai? Where do you cop them?

I do wear them when I get the chance. I do get them, uh, "modernize" them to some extent. Like a lot of 30s and 40s pieces have pretty wide pents, I think it looks comical at times. I mostly kop em out in the bay or thrift stores.

Some more 40s ads. This one showcases the popular cut at the time. Fitted skirt and a drapey chest with strong, padded shoulders. It's a classical example of what is called the "drape cut", championed by a Dutch tailor named Frederick Scholte and worn by the likes of the Edward VIII, prince of Wales, the old Hollywood guard, and Fred Astaire. It gave men an athletic appearance.

I've always loved 18th century fashion. I mean, how can something so effeminate still look so masculine?

Here's a screen from the movie "Wolf of Wall Street". The movie takes place in the 1980s and what DiCaprio character is wearing is what was popular at the time. As you can see it took inspiration from the 40s and 50s. An example of past fashions regurgitating into the present.
