Our guide is Gentlemen's Attire, Described and Illustrated, Autumn & Winter 1899-1900, from Lothrops, Farnham and Company. We will need a "proper sack suit" and fashion demands diagonal serges for daily wear.
For slightly more formal occasions, the three-button cutaway is a must.
And, if we head out later, our evening dress has to be the latest style.
Don't forget, it is going to get cold soon, so we will top it all off with a "Very Stylish" overcoat!
