One can't begin to imagine the horrible conditions it was for those men flying with the temperature and everything. Amazing.

Men's fashion doesn't really change that quickly.

I was just talking to a friend the other day about our formal clothes. Other than the weave of the fabric, and the length of the collar +/- half an inch, things haven't changed too much in 100 years.

German coveralls look very modern.
