18 Interesting Vintage Photos That Show Men's Street Fashions in the 1930s

Men's suits in the 1930s were tailored to create the illusion of a large torso, with wide, padded shoulders and tapering sleeves. Trouser pants were still creased and cuffed at the bottom. However, the Great Depression put many men out of work, and many families fell on hard times. Not all men could afford the fashionable suits.

Wide, padded shoulders, tapering sleeves, peaked lapels, and V-shaped neck all characterize the 1930s suit. These vintage photographs captured men's street fashions of the 1930s.
