Object history note

Authentic American casual wear from the 1950s was highly desirable to Rockabillies of both sexes. While the jeans and shirt (T.308-1994) here date from the 1950s, their assembly here is according to an early 80s Rockabilly sensibility, and they were shown in the Streetstyle exhibition as a 1979-84 Rockabilly look. The shoes (T.462:1, 2-1994) are contemporary to this date.

Purchased. Registered File number 1993/1501.
