A scarce piece of Carnegie ephemera, one we were surprised not to find in Worldcat, nor online. The pamphlet is a guide for men and women that walks them through appearances for various environments. For women, a color chart - what to wear on the street, afternoon, sports, evening, and of course "do not wear". And broken down by hair color. For men, no color charts. Men and women have Type Charts - by type of body, what to wear. The categories are clues into the attitudes of the time - men with a turned up nose should wear hats with turned down brims. Women with shoulders too broad should wear raglad or kimona sleeves with sloping shoulder seams. Fascinating.
