Looking at the Middletown Transcript of April 3rd, 1909, it seems that the Easter season was a time when new fashions were unveiled. From hats to corsets to waists (shirtwaists), and even suits, skirts, and dresses, the Easter holiday was apparently the holiday for one to begin wearing their new clothes and updating their fashion sense.
Men also got to show off their new styles. Hats and caps, suits, and shoes.
