    Yes.  Got to realize polyester, knits, spandex, sports wear was pretty much unknown. Casual wear just started in the 1950’s.  Society norms were to dress.  On a plane, in a movie theater, at work people the norm was to dress.

    +Most of the photos I have seen from those eras have shown people looking neater.   But, times changes and people are not putting out the effort and expense that much these days.
