Chore coat in off-white cotton twill with stenciled decoration.

1930’s logo was known as “The Perfect Bust.” It memorialized the theft of a Venus de Milo statue from the Art Museum by members of the class. The statue was later found badly damaged. The culprits paid for the damage in pennies. The title is also a sly allusion to the stock market crash in 1929.
