“If you're blue and you don't know/where to go to why don't you go where fashion sits/Puttin' on the Ritz Different types who wear a day/coat pants with stripes and cutaway coat perfect fits/Puttin' on the Ritz”
So what if this is not exactly a Victorian era song, it celebrates men’s fashion and that is exciting topic of this month’s Aether Salon, Haberdashery! The well respected Edward Pearse, designer and owner of Pearse’d and Cut will discuss Victorian men’s fashion and how the styles developed.
“Dressed up like a million-dollar trooper/Tryin' hard to look like Gary Cooper Come let's mix where Rockefellers/walk with sticks or um-ber-ellas in their mitts/Puttin' on the Ritz”
Grab your top hats and join us on Sunday, February 21 at 2 pm at the Aether Salon. Tails, as always, are optional.
