Early Clothing In A Later Period.

I have mentioned before, that in my view you are better off wearing early styles of clothing because they cover a wider era. Some have argued that this did not happen with the upper class because they were very fashion concious. So here are some images of the "upper crust" wearing long vests/weskits/waistcoats from the early 18th century in a later period.

1733. Also note that his stockings are worn over the breeches leg at the knee.


1745.


1741.


1771.
