Militant Guild of Rural Tailors

A dear friend posted a link to this photo hosted on Tumblr. Now, like so many photos posted on Tumblr of which I’m a guilty party, there’s not a speck of information provided. Anyway, I did an image search to find out more about them and stumbled across the Flickr account of Militant Guild of Rural Tailors Research Group, which lead me to their blog. From what gathered reading the blog and elsewhere, it functions to showcase a beautifully crafted menswear line cloaked in a creatively designed hoax to expose an underground tailors guild, a rebellion against mass manufactured mediocrity, ‘Tailors against Taylorism‘.

The blog has a lot of great historical information woven into the fantasy but sadly, the site hasn’t been updated in quite some time.

All of the props were made by Young Meagher, I believe.
