Eminently Suitable

  • The College of William & Mary Andrews Hall, Room 101 Williamsburg, Virginia USA (map)

Please join us for “Eminently Suitable: the Surprising Story of the Suit as Work of Classical Art and Key to Modern Culture.” We will examine the modern suit of clothes as embodying a new relation to high culture, arising in the early 19th century as a revival of the classical virtues of Greece and Rome, and succeeding to become our most widely represented and cosmopolitan work of art.
Registration required.
