The Great Emancipator
Apparently the Lincoln revival is in full swing. He’s already meriting a mini-film festival and apparently there’s a Spielberg bio in the works. Hopefully he can keep it short of Che-length, but the real question is who gets to step into Lincoln’s abnormally large shoes. It’s good news for emancipation-chic, but it remains to see whether the look will get any further than the set.
Then again, we’ve always thought the stovepipe hat was due for a comeback.
