Men’s suits

 

Johann Christian Fischer in matching coat, waistcoat, and breeches, by Thomas Gainsborough, ca. 1780.

The suit is a traditional form of men’s formal clothes in the Western world. For some four hundred years, suits of matching coat, trousers, and waistcoat have been in and out of fashion. The modern lounge suit’s derivation is visible in the outline of the brightly coloured, elaborately crafted royal court dress of the 17th century (suit, wig, knee breeches), which was shed because of the French Revolution. This evolution is seen more recently in British tailoring’s use of steam and padding in moulding woolen cloth, the rise and fall in popularity of the necktie, and the gradual disuse of waistcoats and hats in the last fifty years.

The modern lounge suit appeared in the late 19th century, but traces its origins to the simplified, sartorial standard of dress established by the English king Charles II in the 17th century. In 1666, the restored monarch, Charles II, per the example of King Louis XIV‘s court at Versailles, decreed that in the English Court men would wear a long coat, a waistcoat (then called “petticoat“), a cravat (a precursor of the necktie), a wig, and kneebreeches (trousers), and a hat.

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

Pam looked to the side of the path she was on in her local forest of choice and noticed a tiny fairy sitting on a rock doing her nails.  At least it appeared to be a fairy.  It had transaparent wings that fluttered every so often. It had a pink jacket on and maroon velvet pants. The shoes it wore were gold and curled up ending with a silver bell that tinkled as it recrossed it’sr legs. Pam stopped walking to get a better look. when …..

Squirrels ! Mentally Astute!!

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

So I was sitting in my garden watching the birds and squirrels gorge on steamy water and b-seed when I noticed that the squirrels picked the best bits of food and hid them here and there before eating .  But the birds ate and ate until they lay flat on their back with little bird feet up in the air saying Ahhhhhhhhhhhh…..

So does this mean that squirrels are of a more complex nature mentally looking ahead to make sure there would be treats in the afternoon stored away??

That is your ponder-ance for tonight!! Squirrel-dom vs bird-dom.

Peace
