You should check out "Fashion, Impressionism and Modernity" at the Met if you can get down to NYC. If not, get the catalogue. I went last weekend. There is one room for menswear. They clearly don't care as much about it as they do the women's, but it's still worthwhile.

What this is for is to try to establish how style is linked to particular cities and perhaps how those links are now in the process of being broken. I do a particular lecture on Paris in the C19th and dress appropriately, which I also do for the New York lecture, although that deals more with architecture and planning. I would love to teach a whole course on urban fashion, but it's only a side area or interest for me and I don't want to cut into my main area of interest. I don't have anything on video, unfortunately, but that may change next year... all universities are getting quite big on opening up access to courses[/OT]

Thanks for the detailed reply! Just looked up those pointy shoes, they're absolutely fascinating! This page had some cool info about them: http://www.mercwars.com/longtoe.shtml. Intersting quote:

Spoiler because OT.

'Tis the season. As noted in WAYWRN, I apologize for the blurry full photo but otherwise, fucks given = 0.

For the record: Trousers are YELLOW. Like, canary yellow.

sorry G. This is probably the worst youve posted. peepwall[1].gif Youre capable of much better.

I think the odd coat MAY actually work with the pants in this case...maybe. But the shirt and tie....no way bro.

Totally agree with Derek, and seriously, did you post this in every thread on the forum? It seems like it.

It has wide applicability as an object lesson.

I... ah... like the jacket/trouser combo... but I would really like that jacket to be a 2 button instead of 3.

HackingJacket is a troll, he's been in my blocklist for quite some time. Don't feed the trolls.

I don't think he was a troll, just entirely deluded. But, in any case, he seems to have gone.

Perhaps, but then he was one of the most deluded, and more importantly, obstinate posters we've had in some time. Either way, he has indicated that nothing will change his mind, so it's not worth inspiring more nonsense from him.

Guess that last post was somewhat of a necro, so that's good at least smile.gif
