More on Footwear

Some more Juicy shoes, this time for the whole family!

This September 1800 Costume Parisien plate of a man and boy, shows both in long trousers (pantaloons) and slippers

This 1809 Plate from Ackerman's Repository shows mourning costume. I love the doll too!

Children's Shoes (unknown Gender)

Boys shoes. these are young boys in dresses with pantaloons or in skeleton suit like outfits.

Costume Parisien Plate from 1813 shows a Young Man in his clothing. He is dressed in the fashions of an adult, not in a Skeleton suit.

Shoes for Girls
We can see that there isn't much of a difference between shoe styles for little girls and those worn by little boys.
This Plate from Ackerman's Repository from September 1810 shows just how similar they are. the two children wear the same style of sleeve too!

And Lastly Men's Footwear!
A couple of styles from Costume Parisien 1817, showing Shoes with small dainty heels worn with Trousers and Riding boots worn with Breeches.

One last link, this time to a lovely 1800 Costume Parisien plate showing Ladies shoes. notice the back ankle!

Hair Styles for Men

Well here we are, 2 weeks out and I think it is about time I post on Hair style that Men wore in period.
Don't worry it isn't anything too out of the normal for us.
First off, some Links!
Jessamyn's page is a good place to start.

Bad news for those of you with Moustaches and Beards, they were not popular! They do on occasion show up though. Here is an 1818 cartoon of a Dandy Club. please remember this is a cartoon and is an exaggeration. Also sailors commonly didn't shave when out at see, Officers on the other hand likely did!

I know this is going against any of you who may be participating in Movember.
