Call for Underwear!

Hi everyone!

I have an unusual request to make of you all. The Medieval Studies club at Binghamton University is putting together an academic conference on the history of underwear from the classical period to 1750. Tied in to this event will be another, a fashion show entitled "Underwear Through The Ages."

We're looking for samples of underwear from the classical period to the present day, including but not limited to Medieval, Renaissance, 18th century, Regency, Victorian, and Edwardian underwear (for both men and women, preferably as historically accurate as possible.) If any of you have pieces you would like to loan to the university for the fashion show (to be held April 24th, 2010) please email me at hallen1@binghamton.edu. We would pay for postage both ways and insurance on the garments, and your name would be in the program as the owner/maker. We are looking for all sizes.

If you think you would be interested in helping us out with this, please let me know!

Thank you very much for your time!
