Please join us for an in depth look at a critical component of a gentleman’s social attire, namely his cravat. At the turn of the 20th century, a man was judged in some degree by the quality of his neckwear. Whether they were men aspiring to be regarded as a ‘gentleman’, or men who already had achieved that sobriquet, a man’s neckwear helped define his social status.
This intimate look at a gentleman’s neckwear is lensed through the pages of a marketing piece created for the Keiser Stock Company in New York City, and features a remarkably thorough examination of a how to purchase, care for, select, and tie a cravat for any social event or time of day.
In addition to being a superb look back, it is also a wonderful example of an early ‘white paper’.
The Edwardian Cravat runs from March 1st-March 31st in the Professional Virtua Designers Society located in the 21 C Interactive region in Second Life®. An exhibit catalog with annotations is available in Second Life as well.
