To be fair, some boys’ and mens’ wear have also been included, but the shading tends to be rather dark, so perhaps not the best for coloring.  However, you might be amused by the “university”  and “fraternity” clothes.  Here’s your coloring book of the day.   These are all everyday garments, from mail order catalogs, not illustrations from the high fashion magazines of the time.   Have fun!
