I do not see anything Edwardian, either neo- or archeo-, in the second picture, on the right of the top row, first post. It seems that the man is wearing a normal suit from the period between the forties and now. I would happily wear the same one to day. The picture on the left, with the three men, only seems Edwardian, I think, because of the cut of the overcoat, and that may be caused by the posture of the man wearing it. Bowler hats were standard wear well into the sixties I should think.

This thread made my day. :yahoo:

Well, the question is the Neo Edwardian silhouette is here again?
I think yes.
The cut is again slim,the jacket long,with three buttons for the most.
I have see many vests with lapels in this times.
So i think that today this style is more actual then the 30s drape.
The Neo Edwardian style can inspire the work of many young tailors of today.
Is time to see at Bunny and at John Steed.
P.S.
Look this wonderfull purple tweed from Breanish ( www. breanishtweed.co.uk )
Is perfect for an "Bunny Rogers Edwardian jacket"

Think a four or three buttons jacket,diagonals pockets (with ticket pocket).
slim dark gray flannel trousers,Chelsea boots... :rolleyes: :p
And for the vest? any ideas?

I think we are at a phase where we are back to something like the 1960s, which was itself a kind of return of the fashion cycle to that of the Edwardian era. Both the Edwardian era and the 1960s were peaks in stylishness as far the 20th century went. Clean fits and narrower lapels were the order of the day in both periods. Let's hope this decade can make the most of it.

Never saw a Bowler in the sixties.

I kinda don't think they were around in the fifties, either.

Maybe they were for special occaions back then.

Fedoras I never liked. Bowlers are nice.
