cavalier doublet

2

Not the best photos right now, but here is a doublet I built for the character “Aramis” in Connecticut Repertory Theatre’s production of “Three Musketeers”. 

I looooove building period men’s wear, especially pre-19th century.  There’s just so many interesting shapes and colors!  How did it get to be so, I don’t know, plain, today?

If I had a time machine, I would go back in time and punch Beau Brummell in the fucking face for ruining colorful and ornate clothing for men.  FUCK YOU BEAU.
