Mid-Victorian men’s fashions

After the tremendous fun and unequivocal success of yesterday’s spiffing performance for the 150th anniversary celebrations of Portobello Road Market (of which more in a further blog post), I’m keener than ever on getting an absolutely authentic late Victorian men’s suite for future gigs.  I always quite liked the fashions of the 1870s (as in the poster and sheet music portraits of the likes of George Leybourne and the Great Macdermott), so loved the Gazette of Fashion, below, for 1869 to 1870.
