Professor's Outfit
ca 1900

This outfit was worn by a professor at the Free University of Brussels who was keenly interested in the occult and demonology. He used it during his magical endeavours.
Found in a vintage clothing shop in Brussels in 2002.

Photo of a member of the Surnateum personnel whom the garment fits perfectly.
His quietly satisfied smile reveals that clothes really do make the man.
This lot included a small collection of documents on occultism.
