Claire Trevor, Oscar winner for Key Largo and star opposite John Wayne in Stagecoach, is featured in this 1936 photo modeling some spiffy cycling couture. Tub-able? Action-proof?
Here’s the snipe: “BICYCLE SHORTS FEATURE MEN’S SILK SHIRTING– Claire Trevor, 20th Century-Fox star of ‘Human Cargo,’ chose this pair of bicycle shorts for her desert outings from the smart 1936 collection by Bebe Daniels and Pauline Gallagher. The tub-able, comfortable shorts are in Postman-blue pinstriped white men’s silk shirting, brief-sleeved, club-collared and action-proof. The parade of coin-sized blue buttons and the blue suede belt lend decorative accents to its otherwise tailored simplicity.”
