The special issue of Clothing Cultures that this editorial introduces is concerned with the relationship between ageing and dress or, more specifically, ‘old age’ and dress.
It outlines the rationale behind why the Special Issue: Ageing and Dress is both necessary and timely, as well as introducing the research articles and drawing out shared drivers that motivate the international scholars whose works it contains.
