I chose this topic because clothing is essential to my everyday life. The first thing I think of when i wake up every day is what I’m going to wear for the day. This topic would be interesting because shopping for clothing is one of my hobbies and it will be fun researching the clothing that other people wore earlier in the centuries.

I have chosen Clothing in American History because I am interested in vintage clothing and am curious about how people dressed back in the day, where clothes were more rugged and worn for longer periods of time. Its going to be fun to research this subject, because I love to see new styles and am curious of what people wore then, and compare it to new clothing today.
