Mens Victorian clothing suppliers

Postby Wootootoo » Mon Jan 19, 2015 11:35 am

Hi, i'm new to Victorian and wondered if anyone could recommend any suppliers of mens Victorian clothing, particularly for the 1880s, middle class level of clothing. Anyone but gentlemans emporium. UK suppliers would be particularly welcome. Many thanks. Karen

Also original stuff can be picked up via vintage suppliers direct or on Etsy and Ebay- I found a lovely original frockcoat that way for a fraction of what it would cost to make new plus all my shirt studs, watch, pocket items, cane, etc;

When I attended a community Christmas function reading a monologue inspired by the Two Ronnies Victorian Christmas party sketch, I went along dressed like this. Clearly, I was wrong on so many levels.
