Mostly scans of genuine Regency (Empire) and Georgian fashion plates I've collected, some comments. Some good photographs I've taken (most are bleah), a few fashion or historical plates from the Web.
I have scanned these in at 300 dpi, but posted them to the Blog at 200dpi, for those who would like to download them. If someone would like the higher (300dpi) just email me, or mention it in comments.
Now I'm scanning & cleaning up some Costume Parisien fashion plates. Half the problem is my scanner over-or-under-exposes everything, Once scanned into Photoshop, I just hold the original artwork up and work to get the digital image looking pretty much the same, with less age-related yellowing.
Ackermann's Repository seldom had drawings of men, and they weren't nearly as detailed as the French fashion plates. The rather sad thing is I mostly own post-Waterloo (1815) for men. However, the fashions didn't change that rapidly: once guys discovered comfortable & attractive clothes, they pretty much stuck with it. Well, jeans have replaced skin-tight knit -or buckskin- breeches!
