Little Grey Bungalow
This would be perfect if we do "Bye Bye Birdie" but it looks more like "Oklahoma" for the spring musical.
Sam - I do remember narrow tightly knitted ties as being very 'new' very 'Ivy League' when narrow cut clothes came in to replace the 40s boxy jackets and pleated pants, along with those little fedoras. (under the heading of OMG, I'm old)
Also very appropriate for something in the late 1970's to early 80's... the "New Wave" look had a lot of 50's influences.Everything old is new again...
I don't know where I was when all of this was going on. I do remember my mum making my dad ties during the early 80s - wild, flowery things. Sometimes, she'd make herself a dress and make him a matching necktie. (No wonder he tried to wear a clerical collar as much as possible!)
Ah, Sam, use them for suspenders!
I could use some good suspenders on the show I open on 11/3. Got 2 boys with no hips (hate them!) and their pants keep slipping down. Off to pin 1" wide elastic on those pants. And thanks for all the giggles imagining the flowery ties, Lady Anne.
