“Dressing for the King by Madeleine Schwartz” | NYR Daily | The New York Review of Books

“The Renaissance accountant Matthäus Schwarz often took note of the outfits in which he looked particularly fine. In 1520, at age twenty-three, he hired an artist to draw his most notable getups and collected these in a book that he continued to fill throughout the rest of his life.”

I would love to see men dress like this again!! So much fun!!
