Fashionable Clothing from the Sears Catalogs: Mid 1960s
These styles will ring a bell not only with America's baby-boomers, but also with current fashion trend watchers. Today's interest in retro fashions makes this book as current as it would have been more than thirty years ago, but the quality is much better. Using today's technology, it presents more than 400 color photographs of clothing styles for men, women, and children culled from 1964-67 Sears Catalogs. Images of mohair sweaters, cardigan sets, bloomer playsuits, madras jackets, checked gingham shifts with matching triangle scarves, ruffled rib-tickler tops and capri pants, Bermuda collars, wraparound skirts, maternity wear, and even days-of-the-week panties all combine to give us a look into what the average American was wearing, along with descriptions and original prices. Current prices are listed for some of the items for those interested in collectible vintage clothing from the era.
