Black Sock Hop Shirt
Back in the heyday of soda fountains and sock hops, teenagers would flock to diners and drug stores for the sole purpose of comparing their saddle shoes and poodle skirts. In the process they would get hungry and thirsty, slap a few cents on the counter (or pop them in the jukebox), and keep those places in business. It was a great system.
But the fashion industry clearly wasn't able to cope with the pressure of designing the clothes that were driving the whole economy. In a moment of sheer panic, they did away with stylish sleeve lengths and necklines like the ones featured in this Black Sock Hop Shirt. This single misstep started a chain reaction that made drive-in movies and soda jerks a thing of the past. Is it a coincidence that the 1960s were one of the most turbulent decades in US history? You'll have to ask a real historian. We're just nostalgic for classic tops like this one.
