Title

Changes in Men's Dress and a "Snub" to Oscar Wilde (1891)

Subject

Oscar Wilde, men's dress

Description

A front-page story in the Loveland Reporter notes the increasing changes in men's dress away from the standard suit to more casual attire. This changes is supposedly "agitating the masculine mind" and has only been held off thus far because of a "determination to snub Oscar Wilde." Wilde was, of course, known for his more flamboyant dress in this era, particularly as an archetypal "dandy."
