GENTLEMAN'S THREE-PIECE FORMAL SUIT WITH ATTACHED WIG BAG AND LACE CUFFS (COAT, WAISTCOAT, BREECHES)  CIRCA 1780

"VanderBiltmore Style": Men's Fancy Dress Ball Costume, consisting of a Three-Piece Formal Suit with Attached Wig Bag and Lace Cuffs (Coat, Waistcoat, Breeches).

By the 1790s men’s Court dress favoured coat and breeches in a dark, patterned silk or velvet, with a contrasting light-coloured waistcoat. Although both coat and waistcoat were lavishly embroidered in coloured silk thread, the heavy metal adornment of earlier Court dress was gone. As befits the conservative nature of Court dress, the style of this suit is similar to daywear in the 1780s, retaining the curved-back front instead of the cut-away coat, newly fashionable in men’s daywear.
