This commissioned journal article on clothing and party politics featured in Photoworks Annual 23, a special edition dedicated to photography, fashion and style. The article appeared in the 'Singular Images' section of the annual, and discussed the mocking tabloid press attention that had been paid to the dress choices of Jeremy Corbyn MP, with a particular emphasis on a photograph taken of him wearing socks and sandals on the eve of his first conference as Labour leader. The article linked right-wing ridicule to long-standing dismissals about utopian socialism including its links to dress reform in the late nineteenth century.
