I came across a series of photographs (real photograph postcards really) in a junk shop some years ago featuring a troupe of men dressed up in various costumes. Obviously a music group, a glee club type thing. In most of the photographs, there is one guy in some costume, such as a rustic farmer, surrounded by a number of other guys dressed in female costumes, such as the Dutch dairy maids below:
I love the costumes, of course, but I love most of all the serious, steady faces of the men. Big moustaches, heavy eyebrows framed by pretty confections of caps. Go grandad.
I think we don't dress up enough nowadays.
