Formidable 40s clothing
Step into the forties, an era of war and recovery. 40s fashion for men was centred around military uniforms and casual tailoring. Think double breasted suits and pinstripe. Pops of colour came in the form of bold tie designs and holiday shirts.
Embrace the era in true vintage 1940s clothing and accessories. Find main styles from the 40s including real secondhand military jackets, vintage leather, sweatshirts, designer clothing from Dior to Anne Klein, second hand leather jackets, and of course, patterned shirts and ties. Each item in the collection, from collectable vintage military jackets to vintage Haiwaiian shirts, has its own story to tell.
Men's 1940s clothing inspiration
With the backdrop of World War 2, you can be forgiven for thinking 1940s clothing was all doom and gloom. Vintage military clothing from this era has provided lots of inspiration for the fashion world in the years to follow. The 1980s breathed new life into military aviator jackets for example. The influence of Hawaiian Shirts, an item that gained popularity in this era, is still being felt today!
Find your forties style inspirations in movie stars Humphrey Bogart and James Stewart or the jazz greats like Miles Davis. Or pair men's 40s clothing with our collection of timeless Levi's denim or men’s vintage workwear clothing.
