Regard of Things Present

   Posted by: cholmondeley   in Culture, Victoriana

Pages 123 through 129 of the May 2011 edition of ACP’s Men’s Style Australia consist of an illustrated article entitled “Remembrance of Things Past”. Said article, drawn primarily from interviews with Antipodean gentlemen favouring a Victorian- or Edwardian-influenced wardrobe, includes some remarks from your faithful correspondent under his everyday monicker.

While unlikely to provide League members with much by way of novel information, the article does serve to demonstrate that even the most demotic of publications (Men’s Style mixes its coverage of men’s fashion with light cultural pieces and photographs of young ladies in swimming costume or undergarments) are beginning to appreciate and remark objectively upon sartorial preference of a retronautical bent. Of course, one is free to make up one’s own mind as to the value of this phenomenon.
