Man’s Regency Suit

By Jennie Chancey

Here’s a dandy suit! WOW! Note how short the jacket is in front and how long the waistcoat is underneath. The rich maroon color of the jacket is truly striking, and the high standing collar is something, isn’t it? Note the tight fit of the breeches below the knee. This was the era when men showed off their calves (some men even wore “calf enhancers” inside their stockings, if you can imagine!).
