Fashion revolution – Charles IX of France

During his reign, French king Charles IX (1550-1574) was persuaded by his mother,  Catherine de' Medici, that conspirators are all around him.

Being convinced in his mother’s words, Charles IX started to believe that handbags and wallets, in which men carried money, are the perfect place to hide weapons, especially knives, so he forbade their production.

He never even dreamed that this would lead to some sort of revolution in men's fashion.

Since handbags and wallets were banned, tailors started making suits and trousers with – pockets.
