1930s Men's Coat & Jacket Sewing Patterns
Men’s 1930s fashion is often considered the finest men’s fashion in the past century. The styles of the 1930s were conservative yet colorful, oversized yet practical, and confident yet concerned about his spending on unnecessary clothing. Men’s suit jackets could be made into sportier sports coats as well. Sports coats featured a sewn-on belted back with pleats at the shoulder, belt, or both for ample movement. Sports coats came in more color choices than plain business suits. In the mid-’30s, gabardine coats came in a full range of golden tans, blues, browns, light grey, and ivory. Green and burgundy, although less common, added some more color to the earthy palette. Each sports coat was paired with a matching or contrasting pair of trousers. For example 1930s fashion sewing patterns included: a tan coat with ivory pants, a grey coat over brown pants, a blue coat over light grey pants. Textures, too, could be mixed, such as a tweed coat over a smooth gabardine pant. The rainproof trench coat is the overcoat that the 1930s are most well known for. The lightweight belted waist and large collars fit perfectly into the tough-guy image of the thirties.
