The Wilder Mann
It's comforting to know that european men still like to dress up in traditional costumes. It's even more comforting to know that photographer Charles Frréger has captured so many. And it's most comforting to know that we can enjoy them without having to be anywhere near them.
Really though, who doesn't love a little ritualistic dress up? National Geographic has a nice article about the traditions associated with these undeniably great ensembles, but if you want the full story, swallow your fears and buy the book Wilder Mann- the Image of the Savage.
