Thanks very much indeed. That is a great project, and I shall look forward to reading your material.I’ve been looking into the role that khakis played in civilian menswear between the Spanish-American War of 1898 and the end of the 1930’s. (People who have written about the history of civilian-worn khakis seem to have overlooked that span of time.) I’m currently organizing the information I have found so that I can present it in a semi-coherent way.
When I post my findings, I’ll probably do so in a new thread so as not to hijack this one. Whatever I write, it will be an incomplete accounting as there is just too much material to put into a discussion forum post. I’ll get to it as soon as I can.
