The band, The Correspondents, are a big hit for their original way of mixing swing jazz and hip-hop. They also embrace fashion with gusto. Their latest video echoes 1920’s men’s cabaret and Mr Bruce is undoubtedly a bit posh. Is this a sign that the Roaring Twenties revival for men, will be hot this coming winter?
The 1920’s were an extremely distinctive set of years giving birth to jazz music, the flapper (like the young man), prohibition gangsters and many other features that labelled the era as the Roaring Twenties.
The suit design went from a stocky appearance to the more slender, agile and boyish look. One of the most sort after hairstyles was the slicked-back hairstyles. Men left the top layers longer, combed back those layers and greased with tonic to provide very sophisticated look. Those Slicked-back hairstyles were very classic and men wore them in the formal dressy occasions.
Charlie Chaplin introduced his tramp character that best suited the feelings of many immigrants. The tight, sleek coat which was refreshing to see in America at the time. On the video focus on the outfits, it is a great fashion inspiration of the 1920’s and one I would encourage to adopt for winter 2012/2013.
