'Before Business Casual': men's fashion in the 1930s

An illustrated talk at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery offers you a chance to experience men’s fashion in the 1930’s - before ‘Business Casual’ - when a gentleman still needed at least nine hats!

The talk is in connection with the Gallery’s current exhibition Austerity and Invention: Illustration between the Wars and will give the audience a chance to discover the differences between outfits such as lounge suits and formal morning dress, and the occasions when these were worn.

The talk will take place:

On:  Saturday 24 November

At:   2-3pm

In:   Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery

The event is free, all are welcome and no booking is required.

Succeeding the illustrated talk will be an opportunity for participants to chat to speaker Nick Dupras about the clothing and to learn about the ins and outs of tailoring and being a well-dressed gentleman in the 1930s.

The handling and show-and-tell session will take place directly after the talk from 3-4pm. The session is free, but places are limited so please book. This can be done online, via email or by telephone (32778).
