From the 18th century to the Edwardian era, this year our focus in on menswear. Using some striking examples from the Bedales Collection of Historic Dress, we look at how men expressed themselves using clothing and accessories, and how trends changed over this period. How did fashions reflect status? What would young boys have worn? From formal wear to workwear, sportswear to uniforms, come and see what was gracing the male wardrobe from the 1700s to early 1900s.
