Fashion Backward

There's nothing new under the sun, friends.  A couple of days ago, David Colman of the New York Times posted this piece on a worldwide movement in fashion that seems to be growing amongst young gentlemen (and ladies).  The trend, which has at its core a late 19th century Victorian sensibility, includes elements such as groomed mustaches, bowlers, taxidermy, suspenders, wool pants, English bicycles and lots and lots of tweed.

On an unrelated note, a more obscure but ultra-hip trend in men's fashion seems to be gaining popularity here in Tennessee.  Its core elements include coon skin caps, buck skin breeches, trapping for fur trade, log construction, cholera, and being incredibly uncomfortable.
