 Very nice! It is very noticeable how difficult it is to obtain lower class outfits for this era

Hello, back on here after a long absence...I love this era and am lucky enough to be an historical interpreter at an 1890s house museum in Riverside, California..Heritage House on Magnolia Avenue. THE place to live in that era.

Hello, everyone. I adore this period, and am so glad to connect with you all. I also hope to find people in my area, so that we might go on outtings, so if anyone happens to be in South FL, do let me know. :)

Just saying hello. This period has always fascinated me and although I do mostly military impressions from teh era (US Cavalry 1903-1918), I'm also working on the civilian side of things.

Hi Stephen,
Welcome to the group!
I understand your challenge. I too have difficulty finding men's things, period.
Rich or poor, there just aren't that many authentic pieces out there.
Gentlemen did not save their clothing as women did back then.

I present an Ellis Island program at schools & universities.
For that I needed poor, everyday clothing.
It has taken me a while to accumulate such items.
I found second hand clothing stores, online auctions and estate sales to be the best source.
Many of these items are reasonably priced since most people want to buy the finer things.

I also have a friend who sells antique clothing, this can also be a good source if you know of any dealers. They regularly hit the auctions & estate sales.

I hope this information is helpful. :)
Good day to you!
Lady Lisa

I've been wanting to add the Edwardian age to my range of events, but where can I get men's clothing that isn't well to do? I usually protray a lace maker and we are NOT people with money. Any help would be MUCH appreciated!
