Hussar Uniform, England, 1870s. Private Collection.
As previously mentioned, an appreciation for history-things is something that runs in the family. Specifically, an appreciation for the design of historical militaria. This late nineteenth century hussar uniform is a longtime favorite fondly revisited with every return home. Favorite is a clear understatement - best described through the lens of a specific anime; if I were to bond consciousness with a garment to rise to greatness or defeat powers that be through a gratuitous transformation sequence - this would be that garment.
Spoilers; there’s also an incredible cap with a plume that couldn’t be fit in the picture. Plumes, yo.
