DAPPER LIKE DOUG
Douglas Fairbanks was a well-known clotheshorse; his closets literally overflowing with suits, shoes, coats, hats, scarves, jackets and shirts in every color of the rainbow. Although no one in early Hollywood could wear a tuxedo quite like Mr. Fairbanks, his most lasting contribution to men’s fashion today was making casual and sportswear fashionable and acceptable at social gatherings, on the street, and even in the office!
In the 1920s, Fairbanks helped to define “business casual” (on the Fairbanks lot, it was always casual Friday off-camera), so we’ve introduced a few new clothing items for guys and dolls who like to be comfortable while commanding a second look from passers-by.
And underneath it all of course, you’ve got to have…
And these are just a few of the many Douglas Fairbanks clothing items we have available in our online store. Each item is unique and all images carefully selected from the museum’s archives. Housewares, office furnishings, posters and photographic prints, calendars, coffee mugs — all the necessities of modern life, only better with images from your favorite silent films starring Douglas Fairbanks. Guaranteed to get you through the day with a smile!
