Advertisement: Oscar Wilde sells hats to the Cake-eaters in Fort Collins (1926)

Subject

Oscar Wilde

Description

This 1926 advertisement for hats is from Taylor Clothing & Co in Fort Collins. The advertisement explicitly uses the name of Oscar Wilde to draw in customers. The hat depicted in the advertisement appears to be a type not unlike those worn by men known as "cake-eaters" in the early 20th century, a more modern form of the "dandy" which Wilde often represented.
