Fashion or Flop? King James VI and I


It wouldn't be Stuart Week without deciding if King James was a trend setter or flopper. Here we see James in a simple white doublet and hoses, accented with black and silver trousers. He wears a large chain of estate, set off with gold and black jewels. He finishes his ensemble with a black, gold, and silver cloak and delicate black shoes, accented with silver and pearls. What think ye? Fashion or Flop?

AND

How does he compare to his predecessor?

  2. Way overdone. He'd been scoffed at for not having a fine leg as required by the times. An honest tailor was much needed.

    Hello.
    Nice to meet you.
    This is first time to write down hear.
    I'm Atuko from Japan.
    I'm a student and learning about how to make the shoes at shoe making school in Japan.

    I have some question to see your HP on the internet.
    I thought you're so interested in James Ⅰ.
    I'm also interested in James Ⅰ and I'm planning to want to make shoes that James was wearing at 17th.
    But I can't find some information about James's shoes.

    So I'd like to ask you the following questions.
    To make a shoes,could you tell me what kind of material or fabric the shoes was made from?
    Maybe,I think the shoes is made of silver and pearls from your information.
    I think a part of embroidery is silver and some jewery is pearls from your information.
    If it is made of pearls, do you think the color is painted by gold?
    I think the shoes's color is brown like his cloth or black velvet. .
    what do you think?

    If you have some information,I'd like to get everything.
    I'm looking foward to your response.
    Thank you .

    Sincerely yours

    Atsuko
