Shirts . The next stage of a #gentlemanswardrobe we have a #linen shirt. There is nothing better than putting on a crisp linen shirt first thing in the morning, truly a lovely feeling. The construction of a shirt remains pretty much unchanged through the 18th and 19th centuries as it’s formed of squares and triangles and using the full width of the fabric. The only great changes from the #18thcentury to the #regency would be the heights of collars, lengths of cuffs and amounts of frills added. Through most of history #shirts , as all underwear was made from linen, it’s not until the latter part of the #19thcentury that we see cotton overtaking linen due to production costs and the rise in slavery cotton. . #dandy #firstempireproblems #napoleonic #georgian #historicalfashion #tailor #tailored #periodtailoring #gaystagram #mensfashion #tailoring #regencyfashion #smallbusiness #madeinengland #regencydandy #periodtailor #historicalclothing #tailormade #periodfashion #bespoke #tophat #malemodel #historicaltailoring

Poldark (2015-) • The first episode of season 5 aired on BBC One on Sunday night! What did everyone think? (No spoilers though please)
I stand by what I said in my last post about the importance of buying second hand as much as possible, but of course when it comes to wearing period clothing sometimes you find an outfit that outright screams at you and you just have to buy it 😅 but the wonderful thing about it is somebody crafted it, that’s their job and you’re supplying them with the means to continue creating and doing what they love which is also very important. Period clothing making is an art and I’m so grateful to the wonderful souls who bring these looks into the 21st century. Support artist’s businesses but also save some money sometimes with thrifting 😉 dress: @victorianchoice Hat: thrifted and modified by me - - #periodfashion #periodclothing #victorianfashion #victorianclothing #redandgold #19thcentury #19thcenturyfashion #antique #secondhand #classic
i know i already posted this in my stories but i thought i’d post it here too for posterity. this is kat so far: under-petticoat, hanging pocket, and false rump. i’m currently working on her stays before doing anything else, because i want to make sure all my measurements are correct before starting my next petticoat. i’ve got two of those to make, and the pierrot jacket. then it’s smaller items to finish off. which doesn’t sound like that much but it is. #cosplay #costume #katrinavantassel #sleepyhollow #katrinavantasselcosplay #18thcentury #18thcenturyfashion #historialfashion #periodfashion #periodsewing #historicalsewing #sewingproject #timburton #blackandwhitestripes #stripy #underpetticoat #petticoat #pocket #hangingpocket #falserump #bumpad

Stockings . For our next layer of a #gentlemanswardrobe we move onto #stockings the necessary covering of the lower legs for men and women made from frame-knit cloth or circular knitting from the 16th century, before then being made from woven cloth. Stockings of the period were often made from #wool , #silk of #linen of varying thicknesses and weights with a great variety of colours and patterns with decorative weaving or embroidery at the joining of the sole and leg adding strength and decoration called clocking. Stockings were kept up with woven ties, garters and the ties of #breeches , #pantaloons and drawers but this often led to leg ulcers. The three on the right are made by me from a modern woven knit fabric with elastic at the top, I don’t fancy getting leg ulcers and the red pair are hand embroidered by @pennyrivercostumes with another silk pair on order from @sallypointer. Stockings are a delightful thing to wear with breeches and can keep you cool in the summer months or thick wool for the winter, surprisingly not itchy! . #regency #dandy #firstempireproblems #napoleonic #georgian #historicalfashion #tailor #tailored #periodtailoring #gaystagram #mensfashion #tailoring #regencyfashion #madeinengland #regencydandy #periodtailor #historicalclothing #tailormade #periodfashion #bespoke #tophat #malemodel #historicaltailoring
KYLE & TAYLOR: 🌈 Bedtime Stories🌈 ••••• A KALTBLUTmagazine exclusive by Amie B. Rodriguez & Marq Rodriguez. We present to you, KYLE & TAYLOR: a love story, exclusively for PRIDE month🌈 🌈 Check out full film on IGTV 🌈 A countryside love story of two men who live in a barn. When thinking of a traditional lovestory, many years ago it would have been classically represented through a man and a woman. Dating back to the early 1900s, gay men and women were segregated from society to show their love publicly. In our fashion editorial, we are re-imagining the stories of Kyle and Taylor, two men, who without restriction, fell in love and lived the life they wanted. Creative Direction and Styling by Amie B.
