The style of the 1960s is very much "in" at the moment. The Mod era styling is seeing a revival partly because of the TV show Mad Men, although the trend towards lean and clean cut typical of this period was something that probably predated the show. It is definitely "in the air" at the moment.

Here are some absolutely classical pictures from 1960s editions of Rundschau. Some of the hairstyles look decidedly dated but many styles would look perfectly modern today. These come the April 1969 edition.

First comes a fancy reefer jacket to button six with typically narrow '60 lapels. The skirt is an equally fancy pleated design of a typical short late '60 length:

The next two I live a great deal. The coat on the left has an unusual style of lapel and is cut with a waistseam. The text says it is grey coloured wool. I also like the stitching on the patch pockets and elsewhere. It is worn with a cravat that looks elegant here. On the right is a blouce weave suit contrasting lapels and details on the sleeve.

This one looks utterly modern in every way. It is a stylish coat dress from Dior that is simple but stylish:

The coat here is deliberately boxy cut but also shorter than usual. The coat is cut with a fancy panel type of construction to button three. Note too the hacking style of pockets. The contrasting coloured waistcoat is also highly effective:

A three-piece suit made of red and white checked tweed. The skirt is cut on the bias. A simple classic:

A light beige tweed suit with fancy buttons and a straight cut skirt:

A suit of sand coloured gabardine with matching dress and coat. Notice the V shape neckline on the dress, and the contrasting white details:

This one is starting to look forward to the 1970s safari suit:

The last one comes from Ungaro, Paris. It is made of orange gabardine. The coat is to button three, show four and the has a matching pleated skirt:

To be precise, the coat on the left does not have "lapels". It has something called "Matrosenkragen" (sailor's collar), which can be seen on low rank naval uniforms (hence the cravat, which is still part of the uniform in the German navy and many others, I think) and which was used for kids for at least 100 years.
Here is the example:

And this is where it comes from:

What I love about these coats and suits pictures:

Funnel collars
FURRY collars!
Giant buttons
Clean, unfussy look

What I hate:

The hats! (How unflattering can you get! A furry flowerpot, for goodness sake!)
The shoes... Oh dear! Some of those shoes need to be taken out and given a decent burial! Spiky heeled WHITE court shoes with a low rounded vamp... TT's for sure!

But the tailoring looks good.

I have a confession. I just love those shoes! I love plain and clean court shoes/pumps. I especially love those classic 1960s styles.
Even when they are white with spiky heels and low rounded vamps, I like them.

BTW I am responsible for buying the other half's shoes. I don't even ask her if she likes them - I just buy them if I like them. She has complete faith in my judgment. The only complaint she has is that I buy her too many shoes. :puppeh:
