true story: my favorite moment from downton abbey is i forget which season, but lady sybil is getting dressed in the latest fashion for an event and is all “well what do you think” and strides out wearing pants. trousers for a manexcept they look like they were made for a woman instead!!

and she is very proud, and the family looks on aghast, and the music swells and lingers: an entire generation suddenly aware of its imminent mortality. the nightmare of frivolous youth has begun

edit: the piece from the soundtrack is appropriately called “fashion”
