In the latest issue of Orders there is an article about dress that raised a question for me:

The main issue was the author's thoughts on breeches and specifically how they were/weren't tied around the knee. He stated that ties running through the hem are "virtually unprovenanced". I'm not sure exactly what this means. Does it mean there are examples but only rare ones? Or does it mean that there is no evidence for them at all?

Any thoughts?

Struck me that his evidence wass seriously lacking. Lots of what you should and should not wear (and most of that not all that different from what was being printed when I first started!) but not a lot in terms of detailed source material.

Yes, it was a little bit "Trinny and Suzanna" wasn't it? I've posted a similar topic on Knotter's Corner and the concensus seems to be against drawstring-style ties. Need to see some originals really...
