The 1960's


Popular styles in the mens department included fitted plaid suits, trousers, turtlenecks, cardigans, and blazers. This fad started in the 50s and continued into the 60s. Many of the designs for both men and women were inspired by Europe, Latin America, Asia, Africa, The Middle East, and poular bands.

Famous movies include horrors such as Physco, musicals like Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music, and romances like Bonnie and Clyde. Books weren't seen very often because the TV was a rising invention, but To Kill a Mockingbird and Valley of the Birds were most frequently read. TV shows such as Bonanza and Gunsmoke were shows that couldn't be missed. As more TV sets were bought, the greater the television shows' views became, and the less popular walk-in and drive-in theaters were.
