Charles II, huge royal babe and 17th-century fashion icon.

Yeah, Charles II basically invented the three piece suit. He was intensely fashion conscious because he didn’t want to be seen a Frenchified(not a scientific term) and yet France was consider ultra fashionable. So he had this problem of wanting to be fashionable and wanting to look good and avoid the puritanical looks of Cromwell, but he also knew that if he came back to England after exile in France looking like a French king, things would not go well for him. So he came up with the most fabulously English seeming outfit that quickly became ultra trendy and with in 20 years everyone was wearing the justacorp and vest combo Charles came up with, including French people. Fashion at its finest!

So really the vest came about because Englands greatest party king didn’t want to dress like everyone else was and needed to stick it to the super square Oliver Cromwell by looking FAAAAAABULOUS!

Charles, I thank you.

When the girls dress like the boys x white tie and tails VIII. Marlene Dietrich understood men’s clothes better than most men. And style wise she was far ahead of her time. In a time in which women were more or less stuck to skirts and dresses, she started raiding the male wardrobe to add to her collection of dresses and gowns. She had her men’s tailors, shirtmakers and cobblers (she frequented quite a few) make her suits, blazers, sports coats, shirts and custom made trousers. But only Knize in Vienna and Eddie Schmidt in Hollywood made her many tails. Fun trivia: Dietrich’s starched shirt cuffs were directly attached with a hidden buttoned fastening in the sleeve of her dress suits. So she wore sleeveless shirts with her tailcoat, that allowed for quick costume changes and slimmer, more feminely cut jacket sleeves. And while costume jewelry was always worn with stage costumes, for Marlene’s favorite white tie and tails, the cuff links were always her own- from Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels or Trabert & Hoeffer.
