Neckclothitania: The 1818 Cravat Comedy

The famous "Neckclothitania" was published in September of 1818 as part of a satirical newsletter of sorts.

It showed some of the most popular cravat styles of this time. Some styles such as for example the "Mail Coach" were so bulky as to be almost ridiculous.

These guys have transcribed it all nice and neat for you. Enjoy.
