Advertisement In the late s, women wore long, white gloves when they wanted to look ultra-fashionable and glamorous. Some women took it the next step further and wore gloves that matched the color of their outfit. Of course, beyond fashion, people wore gloves to warm their hands. For the utilitarian, leather was the popular choice, using pretty much any type of animal that you could imagine. Deerskin, cowhide, and sheepskin were common leathers.

Pittsburgh, Despite traditional etiquette to the contrary, grooms in the s and ’40s regularly wore tuxedos to church and often mismatched them with a white bow tie. Vintage Evening Weddings Pre Evening weddings are mentioned by American etiquette books dating as far back as They were always formal affairs and therefore exclusively white tie because prior to the s the dinner suit was considered appropriate only for informal evening gatherings.
The edition of Emily Post’s Etiquette mentions that such weddings were unknown in New York society and only took place in the west in cities such as San Francisco. She would later add Atlanta to this list which corresponds with Vogue’s Book of Etiquette explanation in that evening weddings were popular in the South and Southwest because churches there were frequently warm and uncomfortable during the day.
One of the earliest such references is this pictorial from the June issue of Esquire. In it, a black dinner jacket is depicted as being appropriate for semi-formal weddings in town while a white coat is suggested for similar ceremonies in the country. A more detailed written description of the groom’s options appeared in the June issue of the same magazine: In town, the black or midnight blue dinner jacket, with wing collar, semi-butterfly tie, and black patent leather shoes.
In the country or at a resort, the shawl collar doublebreasted dinner jacket of white tropical worsted, washable fabric or Palm Beach is worn, with midnight blue or black dress trousers; a starched, pleated or soft bosom pique [sic] or silk shirt and black semi-butterfly tie are worn with both the regulation and the summer dinner jackets.

However, if we examine usage and styling options in the context of the fundamentals of proper formal wear we can easily deduce some sound guidelines.
Firstly, because they are inherently less formal than standard evening shoes, these slippers remain most appropriate for hosting at home. And it seems only logical that they be limited to warm-weather locales; trudging through the snow in slippers is hardly befitting of a gentleman. Second, while the deep, rich colours typically used for velvet slippers meet the requirements for appropriate formal accents , footwear is too prominent and integral to be considered an accent.

If you gave a child a clip round the ear nowadays, they’d probably sue you and put you up in front of the European Equal Rights Committee or something similar!
But in most cases it’s true what we say, you would never answer back, you would do as you were told because that’s how it worked.
