Clothing of the Future - 1930s Predictions

It's always amusing to see what predictions past generations came up with about the 21st century. This is a great little clip showing what fashion designers of the 1930s envisioned clothing in the year 2000 (note how they include a comma) would be like. Good thing that flashlight tucked into your hair never caught on. Remarkably, they were close on the men - a portable phone, carrier, and facial hair (the goatee did start coming on strong about 10 years ago.)

I thought it was pretty cool that they were thinking of the concept of mobile devices and iPods back in the 30s.
