"Tailored suits were often cut sharp with exaggerated shoulders, and executed in tweed or wool. Designers known for their tailoring include American-based Hattie Carnegie, Irish designer Digby Morton and Paris-based designer Christobal Balenciaga.

Joan Crawford in 1936 is wearing a belted suit with an exaggerated collar to emphasise the fashionable wide shoulders. Her offscreen wardrobe was designed by Hollywood costumier Adrian."
