Athletic Goods 1935 Supply Catalog - Pep Squad and Cheerleaders!

I don't think those slim skirts allowed for much jumping around, but don't the men look dashing? It's because they had "Pep Trousers"!
What made a sweater a "Shaker Sweater? And what was a Melton Jacket?

(a repost from Feb, 2009)


  1. I'm much more curious about the "Bi-Swing Jacket" ! (Or should that be bi-curious??)

  2. Great catalog! A Shaker sweater was made from a plain stockingette stitch using a thick, smooth yarn, and Melton is a type of fabric, usually used for coats and jackets.
