50s: Saturday Night and Sunday Morning
Today, workwear is easily one of the strongest influences of modern fashion. We’re not talking the smart suiting of a businessman, but more the rough and ready, casual threads of hands-on work. And where that influence derived from, is evident in abundance throughout Saturday Night and Sunday Morning. The late-50s film, set in Nottingham, showcases the tough conditions of post-war life as we follow Arthur, a free-living factory worker who seemingly has a wardrobe brimming with varying plaid and check worker shirts. When he's not rolling his sleeves up high to get stuck in at work, Arthur's in his formal finery and out drinking and partying on the weekends.
