This is vividly showcased in the Cluett Dress Shirt Advert from 1911, which epitomizes the elegance and sophistication Leyendecker illustration is renowned for.

The advert, part of JC Leyendecker works that bridged commercial and fine art, exudes a sense of style, masculinity, and sophistication, the hallmark of a Cluett dress shirt. The meticulously crafted image reflects the fashion and the social ethos of the early 20th century, portraying a gentleman donned in a finely tailored Cluett shirt, epitomizing the ideals of the modern, urban man.
