Neither here nor there.
Since many of us here have an interest in historical and ethnic textiles I'd thought I'd post this video I ran across on FB.

The Brighton tailor whose identity became his business

RT 2:51

Zack MacLeod Pinsent dresses as a Regency gentleman every day, saying that the clothing is a "huge confidence builder".

He ceremoniously burned his last pair of jeans when he was 14-years-old and hasn't looked back since.

His passion for historical outfits has led him to take up a career in tailoring, making clothes in period styles at his workshop in Brighton, East Sussex.

He now has clients overseas and has recently returned from a business trip to New York.

Wow. Lots of amazing clothes on his site. That era dressed the men much better than the women, in my opinion. I can understand him burning his denim jeans; I detest the tight yet sloppy way pants are cut for men today. Most of those breeches look more comfortable, and are far more attractive.

Here is a video chronicling the making of an 1890's walking skirt (much more flattering time for the gals). Bernadette's delivery gets on my nerves (a lot), but she is well informed, and her work comes out looking pretty good. She has a matching waist-coat making video I also like. Beautiful clothes - it helps that both Bernadette and Zach have lovely old-fashioned features, and obviously enjoy the modelling part.

Before The Automobile is a fun blog with another young woman's historical clothing creations. (don't know her name) AFAIK, she isn't in business, but based on what she's made, I'd say her tailoring skills are about on par with Zach's.

ETA: all this history is making me itch to pull out the fine linen, and stitch up an 18th century blouse.
