Victoria’s Ending: End of 1800’s
Towards the end of the 19th century, the male appearance consisted of several important parts. Compared to the beginning of the 19th century, men’s clothing made bolder and more costly moves. The most important parts of these bold moves were the cylinder hats, pocket watches and walking sticks. The preparation of classical men’s wear from such troublesome pieces was very much in excess of the purchasing power of the middle class of the period. Those who pioneered the fashion of men’s fashions, even though it was a niche mass, succeeded in spreading this dressing style to the whole world. I will not go ahead without mentioning that they are called “dandy”, which is the end of the ” Victoria ” period.
Bourgeoisie Impacts: 1900-1920
In the early years of the 20th century, three pieces of classical clothing were highlighted: classical jackets, vests, and classic pants. The gowns of the gentlemen prefer to wear jackets and waistcoats that match him throughout the day and often prefer thin stripes and pants in different colors to add contrast pleasures to the look. The rich gentlemen of the day would change at least 2 teams a day like the women of the time. In general, the characteristics of classic clothing parts, dark suit and quality fabrics created.

The gentlemen, who looked after themselves and paid close attention to cleanliness, managed to become trend people at the time.
Optimist Soul Takes on Men’s Clothing: 1920s
20 years with more relaxed lines in wide skirts and suits
This turn after the war was called “jazz age”. In this period of optimism, most of the fielders showed themselves from the optimist point of view, from clothing to music. Compared to past years, simpler and more comfortable suits were preferred. The dark colored suit left the place with lighter and brighter colors. In the 1920s, the bow tie was the tie in men’s accessory preferences. The trouser hangers left their place in the arches. There was a radical change in the pants.

Superman Silhouette and 1930s
On October 24, 1929, the economic downturn caused a huge blow to the world fashion industry. The cuts in the production of clothes followed the decrease in fabric and material costs. This process was a gentleman who turned the dressing into a lifestyle if it turned 180 degrees in the opposite direction. At that time, gentlemen who did not give up looking stylish looked for more than one solution and eventually managed to give the male suits a new character.
The name of this character is “Superman”. Gentlemen wishing to have wide shoulders like Superman have a much wider appearance using their shoulder stools in their jackets. Also, the waistband of the jacket was a sticky measure on the body. They were pursuing the utopia of creating the perfect and elegant man. Neutral and dark men are already in the male classical wear of this period. The reason for this was the economic depravity of the period. In this period of experiencing difficulties in fabric, the wool, tweed, and linen 3 dominated the dominance of domination. Oxford-style shoes also maintained a strong position during this period. Other preferences of men about shoes were moccasins and loafers. The socks, which are the closest companions they did not separate from the sides of the shoes, generally had three characteristic features such as bright, thin and stripped at that time.
