Reformwear.


Berlin 1920s. In the early '20s reformwear leagues sprung up all over Europe as a response to the rapid revolution in women's clothing. The reformers merely wanted to join the party by loosening restrictions on gentlemen's eveningwear in particular. Reformers were generally very keen on loose collars, tabards, sleeveless cardigans, shorts, socks ( stockings) and leather sandals.
Of course, we need guerrilla reformwear leagues RIGHT NOW for the opposite reason: to oppose the slovenliness of the 'designer' casualwear plague. I'll say just this: it WILL get you everywhere with the ladies.
