Vintage Menswear

This turned out to be a very cool book. Fascinating from a historical point of view, as well as for general geek kicks. But also very interesting from a social perspective, to see how similar fashions and fabrics were worn by different classes in different eras, before being recycled in various formats for the 21st Century. There’s some truly rugged working-class Victorian workwear and evening-out upper-class fineries made from exactly the same fabric (tweed), as well as general bat-shit crazy costumes for exploration and the likes – you can get an idea from the video.
