This video is the fifth in a series which takes a nostalgic look back at the everyday items in your wardrobe, revealing their sometimes-unlikely origins and examining how they have gone in and out of fashion through the decades.
Future episodes in this series will examine the history of other popular items including handbags and the bra, while last week’s video focused on the origins of the mini skirt.
Fancy a holiday in rural France ?
Find your ideal holiday accommodation in France, with peace of mind that all our properties are officially registered
Our aim is to provide potential holiday makers with a choice of properties, all of which are officially recognised by the French authorities as holiday lettings. Every gite and holiday accommodation on our website is registered in France in one of two ways. It is either registered with the local Mayor as a tourism/short stay property or is is registered as a holiday letting business in France and so has a SIRET number. We will not advertise any properties unless we have seen evidence of this. If you want anymore information about this, please do contact us.
