In the 1890’s the fashion experts advised all well dressed women to transition from winter apparel into lighter garments by mid-March.

Just as the weather improves the color and general appearance of the natural world, the look of your clothing should also change.

Parents were much more aware of whom their children were dating and where they were going. Teenagers met potential dates either at school, church, youth groups, dances, sport clubs, or through their friends.

Because I went to a girls’ school, one of my favourite events was a Sunday afternoon youth club.

If Sunday youth club had gone well a girl would sit waiting near the phone all week, hoping the boy of her choice would call.

If her parents happened to take the phone call, she would try and act disinterested, hoping the call was for her.

Many a mother has advised their daughters to only wear white shoes, linen clothing, straw hats and handbags, and sandals after Memorial Day and never after Labor Day.

I have a great interest in etiquette and have read extensively on the manners and courtesies of the past.

During the past few weeks I have compiled some of the most general rules that feel are still apropos and would improve our behavior in this 21st century as well.

The March 16th, 1895 edition of Harper’s Bazar devoted most of its content to guiding both young and more mature women in selecting the proper spring garments.

It was the Duke of Wellington who was credited with possessing fourteen overcoats, from which he selected each day the one best suited to the prevailing temperature, and perhaps his carefulness in the matter had much to do with the fact that he lived to the advanced age of eight-four.

Teenagers usually went to organised events with a group of the same sex from their school.

A local band played and we danced the afternoon away.

I had no idea of what you do on a date, especially my first. First you had to ask the girl you liked to "go out with you". Then you had to set the exact time; dates were usually on Saturday night.

I was shocked when I found out I had to wear a suit. I was so nervous that I'd hoped she wouldn't be the one to answer. I didn't say much more than "here" and of course she responded "oh how beautiful, thank you" or something like that.

Ok, I was without any of these too so my brothers and Father pitched in. You were supposed to bring your date flowers as a matter of courtesy. He should have known I was shaking beside the hand shake. I got through the first part of my date successfully.

My older brother gave me his suit to wear and mercifully it fit. Luckily Pops had a shirt that fit me along with a neck tie that was wide and loud. And the last wardrobe requirement, make sure your shoes were shined to impress your date. And, hold on: make sure you walk on her right side and protect her from any possible auto hitting her. And oh yes, don't forget to open the door for your girlfriend and mind your manners. First, lake sure you got to the movie theatre before they changed the price of admission. Everyone liked the restaurant and it was less expensive than most other places at that time. After the movie we went to the restaurant, Hoe Sai Gai which was on Randolph St.
