The downward spiral began with an excess of agricultural products, which led to falling prices. In an attempt to control the decline, produce was kept off the markets. The fall in agricultural prices meant that the farming population faced a reduced income.

Chronicles trends in 1930s styles such as lower hemlines and broader shoulders; the introduction of synthetic fabrics; and new views of fitness, health, and personal beauty.

This 'reference' has some decent pictures, but you can of course get far more, and much more accurate information, off the internet. Although published in 2007 it's a typical run-it-off-and-sell-it reference book of the past, comprised of a lot of breezy, unsubstantiated statements, many of which are plain wrong ("...the [motorcycle] jacket - based on wartime flying jackets..." no, it's the other way around, leather flying jackets were based on the leather driving jackets of the pre-flight age.) Some of the declarations are funny: "Dior is the only designer to show a waistline in his collection. He dies soon after." None of the author's assertions are footnoted or cross-referenced and there are few references for the illustrations used.

I got this specifically because the book description said it covered shoes. There are precisely two paragraphs about shoes, and a single photograph (a Ferragamo evening shoe), strictly discussing the stiletto heel. Meanwhile an entire page of the 53 pages of illustration and exposition is devoted to anticommunism and Joseph McCarthy (not a discussion of his '40s-style double-breasted suit, though.) Racial issues don't quite get a full page; there is a 1/4 page color inset in it showing Barbara Goalen wearing a 1953 "Petunia" evening dress by Mattli. The connection is unclear.

I first purchased this book over a decade ago while I was helping a friend with his vintage clothes business. At the time, I knew very little about clothing of the 1940's, but I knew that I liked them and began collecting some of the clothes and accessories for myself. When I stumbled across the book, I purchased a copy and showed it to the owner of the business. At the time, swing dancing was a very hot trend, so I suggested that he contact the publishers and purchase some copies to display in the shop. Well, the book is so well written and illustrated, that they sold like hotcakes. On top of that, I became a better educated retailer and conservator of my own collection.

Over the years, and following a few moves, I had lost my copy of the book, but was ecstatic to find it once again on Amazon. If you have interest in clothing and accessories of the period, get this book. You will love it!
