3 Vintage Inspired brands from 20th Century Clothiers –  there’s something for everyone!  By Kate Beavis

 

We are so pleased that 20th Century Clothiers will be returning this month to showcase not one brand but three brands, all aimed at the vintage loving customer. For anyone that is not familiar with their designs, today we are sharing just why we love them.

 

The House of Foxy

The House of Foxy is their original women’s brand, designed and made in the UK. What sets them apart is their focus on replicating genuine details from the 1920s to early 1960s, so the fashion you get is as close to the originals as possible. Many designs are closely based on 1940s utility designs in wearable colours and shapes – with some styles going up to a size 24.

 

Our favourites are:

1940's Garden Dress

The 1940s style pretty Spring Garden tea dress​​

Pretty Retro

Pretty Retro is the newest of the brands and is the more affordable younger sister of The House of Foxy. The range is made up of classic “must have” popular designs from the 1940s and 1950s, made to coordinate together to create a perfect capsule vintage wardrobe; think pencil skirts, wiggle dresses and wide leg swing trousers in red, navy, green and black.

20th Century Chap

We mustn’t forget the chaps! 20th Century Chap is also designed and made in the UK with suits and accessories based on original designs from the 1930s-1950s. With original details such as fish tail trousers, spear point collared shirts and wide leg Oxford Bag trousers made popular in the 1930s, these designs are perfect for a dapper gent, a hipster lad or even a style savvy groom.
