No-one remembers Buster Keaton anymore...

I love this image of Keaton and Chaplin squaring off from Damian Blake's Deviant Art profile 

You'd be forgiven for assuming that Galliano's menswear show would focus on purposely shabby, frayed materials if you saw the flurry of twitpics before the show of whey faced Chaplin-alike models with curly hair and suspect mustaches.

Instead it seems more like a play on proportions (tight jacket/baggy trousers) that makes Chaplin the perfect fit (ahem) for the show.



However, when the tailoring and proportions turn more towards the square shoulders and starched collars, the models look more like Buster Keaton, with straw boaters and newsboy caps.


I wish more men dressed like this.  The world would be a much more interesting place if they did.
