Yesterday, it was the ladies in my family tree who had a chance to show off their very fashionable clothing and hair styles.
Today, it’s the turn of the gentlemen. Here they are:

My 3X Great Grandfather, Daniel Adams

I love to see how fashions changed through the decades, both for women and men, although men’s styles don’t have the same distinctive differences seen in the ladies’ dresses.
Do you have fashion forward ancestors in your family tree?

Coleman’s hat is quite the fashion statement! Any idea about those embellishments? Take care!
No idea about his hat embellishments!
Linda, I love these fashion posts! You are so fortunate to have so many great photos of your ancestors! To see the changes from decade to decade is so interesting.
I know how lucky I am to have so many family photos. I am the caretaker and they will be passed on to the younger generation. 🙂
You have some very handsome men in your family and such wonderful photos. Sometimes, the coats/jackets they wore belonged to the photographer.
What a fun view of fashion, especially because they are your own family members. Seeing the women’s fashions was fun, too. You have an impressive collection of family photographs!
