Victorian Gentlemen's fashion.

                                        for more details follow us on @champaris75 #champaris

Today's gentlemen's fashion.

It seems that all Victorian men had very small feet, and all today's men can't afford patches for their Jeans.

Life's tough in the 21st Century!

  1. Expensive holes those; jeans like that cost a lot, in return, no holes in pockets!

    1. I've recently bought myself a couple of pairs of jeans, but I won't be cutting holes into them; not for the moment anyway.

  2. I thought this fashion would pass quickly but my kids in their thirties are still wearing holey jeans. I m sure I would have worn them as a teenager, rebellion and all that. Not my favourite fashion now

  3. I offered to mend the bearded one's jeans in Oz but he declined my offer. I just don't get it.

    1. I'm surprised, I'd have thought he'd be grateful.

  4. I think that young people look great in holey jeans but not when your older, so please don't cut yours up Cro !!!!
    I love Victorian fashion and tend to look a bit Victorian myself !!! XXXX

    1. I dressed a bit like that when I was living in London (64-68-ish). Long frock coats, slim trousers (never bell-bottoms), etc. I still love the style.

  5. My jeans always got holes in the knees naturally but not where these fashion jeans are ripped.

    1. My 'ratting' trousers always have holes; that's why they're my 'ratting' trousers.

  6. Do you have to put corresponding holes into the long-johns that are required to be worn underneath this time of the year?

  7. My son spent a lot of money on pairs of jeans such as these...then he realised he could do it himself on the skinny jeans he no longer wore which were lurking in his wardrobe and surprise, surprise they look exactly the same. I was quite impressed that he'd worked it out on his own. Arilx

  8. Better knee holes in jeans than waistbands underneath the buttocks.

    1. That must be one of the strangest fashions. You wouldn't believe some of the examples I've seen; how they stayed up I have no idea.

  9. I'm sure I looked like a fool when I was a teenager dressed up in the eighties. You do pay a lot for perfectly placed holes in your jeans. -Jenn

    1. Since you're also an eighties teen, didn't it occur to you as it did to me that Cro's modern photo could have been taken in the 80s? Ripped stonewashed jeans and denim jacket and basketball boots? The 80s are now retro!

  10. I think I prefer my men as somewhere in between.

  11. I remember an exhibit at the V&A with the theme of Tribal affiliation as a fashion component. When I am traveling on the subway, it's fun to figure out how many tribes are traveling with me. I sort of try to go incognito, or at least as a hybrid.

    1. That reminds me of my time in the city at The Stock Exchange. We all wore pin striped suits, striped shirts with white collars, navy spotted ties, and bowler hats. A 'tribe' if ever I saw one.

  12. To think that when I was a girl we would patch our jeans when they got holes in them. I could never understand why the fashion persisted as it seemed to me that one's toes/feet would always be getting caught on the tears when putting them on. Which I would have found very annoying and possible even painful!

    1. That sounds like me putting on my Barbour coat; holes everywhere, and my arms end-up in the lining.

  13. Those Victorian chaps looked splendid..such style. My mister still wears a suit and tie to work and not many of his male colleagues still do...I like it for the office environment.

    1. I only have one suit these days; lots of ties, but no smart shirt.

      Delete
  14. I think we could lose the ripped jeans for the top hats. They're spiffy.

    1. When I worked on The Stock Exchange I had to (occasionally) wear a silk Top Hat. I loved it.
