Just to let you all know, I am currently researching the next essay I plan to share. I started looking into the construction of the male consumer from the traditional point of view of the 1950s onwards. However having come across a few intersting books from feminist literature to advertising trends, I thought it would be more appropriate to look even further back in time.

  3. Sounds so interesting..even here in the states you can see once the penny magazines started getting around in all the rural parts of America after the Civil war that the male consumer really did take pride in finding the right shirt..which sometimes lead to fights. I especially noticed this in Happy as a big Sunflower (a true diary of a Swedish immigrant with the strike resmemblance of Heath Ledger) & in Kansas City Charlie the youngest person to be hung in Kansas.

    What was also fasinating in Happy as a big sunflower..he even crossed dressed one Saturday..just to see if anyone would notice..and this is like the 1870's. He also would get these secret idenity letters from different "girls" in town and its like a lot really hasn't changed as we think..even if we do communicate mostly by blogging or e-mail these days.
