Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764305190, Paperback)Fashionable Clothing from the Sears Catalogs: Early 1950s focuses on wearable, collectible vintage clothing and accessories. The Sears catalogs provide the basis for a comprehensive evaluation of the fashions of this period. There is no guessing as to the dates of the clothing, and the descriptions are unsurpassed in terms of detail and accuracy. Vintage clothing from the early 1950s is extremely desirable to collectors, but it is increasingly difficult to find. Fashion designers look to the elegant styles of the period for inspiration. Collectors love the beautiful crafted handbags and the carefully tailored suits, jackets, and coats. Shoes have become very interesting to collectors in recent years, perhaps due to their comfortable styling and beautiful craftsmanship. This survey encompasses all aspects of the era's fashions, including: gowns, dresses, shirts, skirts, sportswear, accessories, nightware, underwear, coats, suits, and jackets. Fashionable Clothing from the Sears Catalogs: Early 1950s includes introductory remarks, helpful hints for collectors, descriptions from the catalog, and current values placed next to the original Sears' prices.
