Woohoo! We have a new episode of Fashion History with American Duchess to share with you today! Earlier this year, we managed to get our favorite English [historic] tailor, Zack Pinsent, to sit his bum down for a fun skype session/interview.

If you don’t know Zack, well, you should. He’s a bright young thing in our historic costuming world (literally, he’s 23) and is totally making a wonderful name for himself as a historic tailor. Self taught, hungry for information, and incredibly talented, Zack usually leaves us drooling onto our smart phones while lurking through his Instagram.
As with most of our interviews, what begins as an interview about how Zack became what he is, and learned what he knows, we found ourselves discussing eccentricity, masculinity & fashion, and embracing the real version of you. Something that all of us need reminding of every now and then.
There was also a funny screenshot of him drinking wine, because, being in England, it was the evening for him (and just the beginning of the work day for us!)
|Wine, Headphones, and Banyan for Mr. Pinsent. Abby is giggling.|

He’s also a special guest at this year’s Jane Austen Festival at Locust Grove in Louisville, Kentucky! (Abby and Lauren will be there, too…)
