Period Appropriate Motoring Attire

This post on the Hemmings blog discusses the importance of accessories; specifically - period correct clothing to go with your vintage car.  The post has several references to resources for those interested in vintage clothing, regardless of whether that interest relates to automobiles or not.  One interesting point to me was that the desire for a "complete package" can run both ways.  While many folks may become interested in vintage clothing as an accessory to their vintage car, there are some, like the couple pictured here, who acquired their vintage car as an accessory to their vintage clothes.
