Walker Percy has been mentioned before, but not these particular pictures to my knowledge.

What looks to be a reversible raincoat/overcoat not unlike those still sold by J. Press.

These military looking shirts show up on Southern men Percy's age during the 1970s and
1980s.

Adding this to show off his suede saddle oxfords.

He was wearing saddle oxfords from an early age (interesting striped socks as well). That is Shelby Foote on the other chair.

^ That's a most excellent photo of Iacocca, it really shows the simple smooth lines of suits the period. No rumpled or ill-fitting nonsense. Thanks for posting.

Edsel's lapels look pretty 30's-ish.

William Clay Ford and the Lions did seem to be a case of nice guys finish last. People seemed to like and respect him, but he probably never put enough pressure on the organization to win.
Well, this is a Trad forum, so now the state of Lions football is now a tradition. 😉 Although, they are closer to .500 on Thanksgiving than I anticipated. Still, would be good for football if they could stop losing with such regularity.
