Town & Travel Wear was an in-house boutique located in the Waldorf-Astoria and the Statler-Hilton hotels.
“Town & Travel Wear shop at the Waldorf-Astoria was one of several in the hotel for men and ladies catering to the “carriage trade” in the 1940’s and 1950’s. Although our archives have no reference to it I have seen archive advertisements featuring its location at the hotel which I believe was at street level judging from the illustrations.”
Thanks to Jim Blauvelt of The Waldorf-Astoria for this information.
