1910s Fashion for Men
100 years ago, there was a vast difference in the way men dressed. (niveau de la crue de 1910 image by Bruno Bernier from Fotolia.com)

In the 1910s fashion for men became more stripped down and followed the shape of the body. Due to technological advancements, such as central heating, under clothes were thinner and simpler which made for a less bulky appearance.


During the day, men dressed in a formal manner, sporting shirts, vests and jackets accompanied by a tie and a morning coat. In the evening, this would be replaced with a dress shirt, a dress coat, a waistcoat and a bow tie.


In the 1910s, the cut of trousers was slightly changed; the legs were narrower and featured cuffs, causing them to end just above the shoe, as opposed to previous decades, when the trousers had been wide-legged and pegged at the ankle.

Footwear & Accessories

A common accessory for a man in the 1910s was a top hat. As for footwear, pumps, boots and oxfords were the main choices. Each of these shoe types feature a small heel and laces with the exception of pumps which had no laces.


In a home environment, most men would adjust their attire to be more informal. Items such as lounge suits, tweed jackets and stripped blazers were often worn, along with a dinner jacket in the evening.
