Mad for the 1960’s

Max wears an original 1960’s sharkskin suit from The Man Store downtown Asheville (see historical photos below).   Slim, notched lapels on the 3-button blazer accentuated by the crisply starched white shirt with french cuffs is characteristic of the classic 60’s man.  This suit is single-vented (one slit in the back), classically American, distinguishing it from English or Italian styles of the time.  His tie, slim, straight and bold adds creative texture and the tie pin that suggests he is a thoughtful, detail oriented man.

Sarah dons a mod-style dress, black with moss green dots by Sugarhill Boutique from the UK.  A slight gather at the waist, the tease of the rising hemline along with the revealing slit above suggests a woman who knows how to use her assets to her advantage.

This Heartbreaker dress in one of our favorite cuts, the Beverly, paired with the pearls this is a more traditional style typical of the 1950’s and early 60’s.  Made in California, this flattering dress accentuates her neckline and hugs her curves.  The dramatic flare of the skirt begs to be asked to dance.

This dress, also from Sugarhill Boutique (UK), harkens the later 60’s with its revealing bodice and almost mini-skirt.  Bold pin-stripe stockings give a mod twist to the t-strap burgundy heels (from B.A.I.T.) made popular in the 1920’s.
