  1. This looks fun. I realized that I subconsciously (until moments ago) expected French people to just have a bunch of Revolutionary-era clothes stuck away in closets and trunks that have been there since the 1790s! Because they have so much still standing from then, most of our US stuff is much newer. Silly of me, I know. Yeah what’s with the pansies?

  2. Cross dressing tended to get you into trouble for most of history whether you were a man or a woman but Joan of Arc doesn’t seem to have had a problem until she was captured by the English and they were looking for excuses to burn her. Joan wore men’s clothes for practicality on the battlefield and apparently that was accepted by the French as justification for the unconventionality.
