PICTURE: #11 IN ELEVEN ACTS
SPECIAL GUEST INTERVIEW:
JOE McGLYNN TALKS ABOUT HIS 11TH OUTFIT
What items did you use to compose this particular outfit?
BVD “made for the best retail trade” 1930’s cotton & Lastex embroidered pajama’s with shell buttons (trousers have drawstring and embroidered cuff)
Early 40’s Royal Lounger geometric-patterned brocade robe with tassled belt,
1930’s Do Not Disturb hotel door sign
How did you arrive at the decision to compose such an outfit?
To share some clothes which are not worn past my front door.
Did you compose this outfit spontaneously or was it planned ahead of time?
In a scale of 10, how pleased are you with this composition/outfit?
9 (Winding down…minus my period slippers).
What roles do color, the fit, and integrity of fabric play in this particular outfit?
The pajama material is a soft-but-crisp cotton, brocade robe (which sold for a steep $15 in 1944) has a nice weight to it and it slides on and off easily. This outfit is more about the fabric than the cut.
How soon would you repeat/wear this same outfit again?
The next time Heidi puts on her 1930’s pajamas
There is perhaps a spiritual, emotional, intellectual or psychological aspect to what/how we dress. What is your personal experience in relation to this outfit?
When wearing this, I feel as if Jeeves is going to appear with my freshly ironed newspaper.
