Born of protest: The first costume club
There are no limits to what we can protest for or against. For Joseph Vogl, it was pants made of loden fabric in 1883. These pants went so much against the grain of this herder and his band of brothers that they asked a dressmaker to make shorter leather pants which were much more appealing to them. As there were only six men in the group and they wanted to promote the importance of their cause, they set up an association there and then: the first traditional costume club.
