5.0 étoiles sur 5 A book for 1920's fashion fans! 14 juillet 2002
Par CRK - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a lovely book of a wide variety of catalog drawings and photos from the B. Altman Company which carried higher quality items as compared to the Sears catalog books. There are men's and women's clothes and childrens clothes, hats, undergarments, stockings, shoes...A real treat if you are interested in what the upper middle class might have worn. And everything progresses by the year, so you can see how the fashions developed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 What the well dressed Flapper was wearing in the 1920s 21 décembre 2002
Par Lawrance M. Bernabo - Publié sur Amazon.com
"1920s Fashions from B. Altman & Company" provides over 700 black & white illustrations, detailed descriptions, and prices for clothing for the upper class of the Jazz Age. The focus is primarily on women's clothing and accessories, with everything from sophisticated evening wear to bathing suits, but you will also find a complete array of clothing for men and children as well. Please remember, because they buy directly from the manufacturer, "thus eliminating the no inconsiderable profits of the middleman," B. Altman & Company are able to offer patrons the benefit of the savings. This is a superb record of the styles worn by flappers in the Roaring Twenties; note than this is not simply the reproduction of a catalog from a particular year, but has fashion culled from the B. Altman catalogs of the entire decade. Interesting Footnote: The B. Altman & Company Department Store is now the New York Public Library Science, Industry & Business Library. Dover also has a reprint edition of "Altman's Spring and Summer Fashions Catalog, 1915," which records the fashions worn in the United States in the years before the First World War. This volume will be of interest to the fashion historian and of great use to costume designers working with this period of American History.

This is the real deal. It's what people really wore, not the weird fashion illustrations (although I enjoy looking at those, too). It's interesting to see how modern some of the items are. I'd love to wear the shoes, coats and bags, and a few of the ladies sweater suits today. On the other hand, some of the clothing is incredibly oldfashioned.

The ladies undergarments are a scream. You buy them by your chest size in inches. Notice that there is no "cup size" because these are designed to squash you flat into a tube. See item 4546: "Bust Supporter and Diaphragm Confiner of a strong quality of pick silk tricotine . . . giving a very flat appearance when worn with a very low top corset. Sizes 34 to 46. $5.00

Also, some of the pictures are actually photographs and the models are very "chinny." The models are decidedly shorter and chubbier than today's models, and the flat chests make their chins look even bigger. It's interesting to see how the definition of "pretty" has changed over the decades.

This is great inspiration for anyone interested in vintage clothing or clothing design, or just fun if you love fashion.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Charming reference but Kindle edition is too low res 1 octobre 2012

As other reviewers have mentioned, this is an interesting (if short) cross-section of clothing for sale from the upscale B. Altman & Company catalogs during the 1920s. As someone researching fashion in the early 1920s, I appreciated the chronological ordering and the original product descriptions detailing price and materials.

There were three problems with this otherwise pleasing collection. The first and biggest is that the graphics for the kindle edition are not high enough resolution. Text is illegible at normal kindle display size, and if you blow it up to a larger size (awkward to do in many kindle applications) the font is extremely fuzzy.

A second, smaller irritation was the fact there are no dates on the illustrations (which would have been easy enough to include).

The third issue I had was the brevity of this collection (128 pp.) Because it contains a little bit of everything, riding outfits, fur coats, undergarments, night-robes, baby accessories, the space devoted to adult clothing of the sort one might see at the theater, dining out, or an informal party ends up being quite small. For the early twenties, there was one illustration of "frocks" one of "skirts" and one of "gowns," which felt unnecessarily skimpy. A few more illustrations of what people wore between the undergarments and fur coats would have been appreciated.

All in all, this is a fun book to browse through and provides a *slightly* better window into 1920s clothing than you can easily find on the internet. In my opinion, a larger selection and higher resolutuion images would have cinched an enthusiastic five stars.

Great resource for anyone interested in fashions from this era. I'm using it as a reference to costume a doll from the 20's.
