Costumes worn by men

December 13, 2023

The last five new costumes were all worn by males. This was not at all intentional, but just sort of happened. I suppose it’s okay, as the costumes we document do lean heavily towards costumes worn by women. This is not to say that costumes worn by men are not used at the same rate, because they certainly are. We just don’t identify them with the same frequency.

I should do a breakdown of the costumes on this site, documenting how many are worn by men, by women, by children…

I still have not watched any of the costume dramas I should be watching. But I haven’t been watching much of anything at all, with holiday parties to attend, presents to wrap, and a house to clean. Also, being the odd person that I am, I tend to do my “Spring Cleaning” in December. It’s not intentional, I just get to the point each year where I look around and scream “I can’t take it anymore!” And that point is generally December. I don’t have the strength to make it to Spring.

So yeah, my free time has been spent with a paper shredder.  And hell is adding label tabs on folders to store in a file cabinet.  Nobody tells you about that one when you become an adult. Nobody says a big part of being a grown up is getting paperwork in the mail, reading that paperwork and either shredding it, or filing it and keeping it for years and years and years until your life is nothing but paperwork. I tend to recall that Marie Kondo’s book was filled with multiple instances of her crying over the amount of papers she had and how to organize them.  I relate, Marie. I relate.

I’ve gotten a bit off topic, but hey.

If you’ve seen any shows or films you’d recommend, let me know. And if you’ve found any reused costumes, please do send them in.

About The AUthor

Katie is the creator of Recycled Movie Costumes, where she’s constantly haunted by the ghosts of costumes past. One day, she had an epiphany: if she had to suffer through these recycled costumes, then so should everyone else! And thus, Recycled Movie Costumes was born.

Contrary to popular belief, Katie does not have a photographic memory, nor does she work in the costume industry. She’s just a girl whose life has slowly spiraled out of control after watching too many costume dramas on Masterpiece Theatre.
