I'm sure you've probably heard of this, but it's a word I hadn't come across before so I asked Mr Google for a definition:

'Historybounding is the act of incorporating historical or history inspired clothing into your day-to-day fashion choices'

Is it just me or does that strike a cord ?

What a sturdy and honourable-sounding word! ...And when questioned in a sneering manner, one can look down one's nose and inform the ignoranus (not a typo) that one is Historybounding.

 It's a new word to me Miss Cora. I shall be incorporating it into my vocabulary to shock and awe my fellow  vollunteer soldiers at the local Salvation Army Store

 "We have a Historybounder here , wondering if we have any  tweed jackets for some do he's got going on  "

 " There will be some Historybounding customers that will really go for these retro men's dress shirts"

"The Historybounding vollies  on the other shifts try to save some  shocking gear that keeps clogs up the racks"

Historybound is also the name of businesses in estate appraisal, antiques, but also a proposed way of running elections.

Language is always creative.

A lot like Disneybounding, wherein people go to Disney attractions wearing stuff "inspired by" Disney characters, because Disney doesn't allow people in the parks in full costume (that's the staff's job).

Kind of sounds like what I do all the time when I dress up for appointments or whatever.
