Vintage Miscellany – January 3, 2016

Click to Enlarge

This Edwardian era postcard is a real treat because it shows both women and men “En Bob-Sleigh”.  Real photographs of sportswear of this time period are hard to find, and this one gives a great view of the clothes in action.  To see the details, enlarge the photo.  You can see a variety of sweaters and caps and knit gloves.  The woman in front appears to be wearing a shortened skirt with leggings or thick stockings and a turtleneck sweater under her jacket.  It’s almost enough to make me wish for snow.

And now for the news…

  4. Fun roundup as usual. I caved and ordered a pair of the turquoise harris tweed flats. I just had to have them. And forwarded the baseball stirrups article to my husband the life long baseball fan. He has held forth on the subject/meaning of stirrup wearing (or not) since I’ve known him.
