Fashion Friday

Los Angeles County Museum of Art - 1790 -1795

Here we have an antique clothing display at the LA Museum of Art.

The tailcoat is brown silk and cotton weave with deep brown silk satin stripes with a short waist and three buttons on each side and an open collar. The vest is silk as well, which was a popular fabric for upper class clothing in the 18th century.

The shirt has ruffles at the wrist and neck. The breeches are tan cotton and the shoes appear to have bows rather than buckles.

What do you think? does this gentleman-equin have style?
