I just got my mail and inside one of the envelopes was an advertisement from April 1921 for a Nardi side saddle riding habit...
It was given to me by my friend Pam Fierro, who is a fellow vintage clothing dealer and who owns the fabulous website, Glamoursurf Vintage.
I collect vintage ads for riding habits and side saddles so this will fit nicely into my collection. Thanks Pam!
I like Nardi habits too, but sadly, it was a US maker so I doubt if many made it over to England.
I like the one the model is wearing in the ad. It still has the long jacket reminiscent of the 1910's but has the straight, non curvy lines which characterize the 1920's. It's kind of a transitional habit between the two decades.
