Men get your fedoras, often worn tipped down over one eye at a rakish angle. Neckties were wide, and bold geometric designs were popular, including stripes, and quadrilateral designs.
Ladies, gloves were enormously important in this period, and feminine curves were highlighted with the invention of zippers to create dresses molded over the body.
Doors open at 6:30 for the party.
