Bonwit Teller window display featuring both women and men's ensembles. The display features a blue painted back-wall with a floor designed to emulate marble. The men's ensemble is based upon Beau Brummell, a man famed for his fashion and "Dandyism." It consists of a military outfit including a jacket with tasseled shoulder pads, a hat, leather boots and a sword. The women’s ensemble consists of high waisted pants, button down shirt, and heeled shoes. A film reel has unraveled at the mannequins’ feet and one holds a length of the film strip. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Our hats off to Beau Brummell... Dandy Parts by Casino... Sports Fifth Floor."
