Betcha didn't think I had another one in me after that double wide Scatter just a few days ago. I keep telling you all that my fevered little noggin is crammed with all kinds of stuff. So, here we go again.
Eduard Charlemont did this painting, The Cavalier, which caught my attention, because its a pretty darned good representation of what a foppish sort of fellow would have been wearing in the days of Louis XIII. In particular, the odd short cropped jacket, which was short enough to show the white of the shirt at the waist, and the abundant number of ribbon ties, each with its metal point, adorning both the waist and the hem of the breeches. What makes that interesting too is that by this point those ribbon ties performed no function whatever, though in prior times they held the doublet and breeches together.
Well, that ends another edition of Scatter. I hope you all have a Grand Weekend!
