Fashions for November

Coloured cartoon from the Northern Looking Glass 14 November 1825 with the title "Fashions for November". The caption notes that "The hat à la champignon is now quite outré, referring to the large mushroom-shaped hats that the cartoonist had mocked in earlier issues. In this image, he mocks instead the fad for voluminous puffed sleeves and includes an apt quotation from William Shakespeare.
